Wednesday’s game under the Etihad lights represents a vital clash between City and PSG, who both know they could guarantee their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League by the final whistle.

Pep Guardiola’s men currently sit top of Group A knowing we'll reach the next stage of the competition with a draw.

The Parisians sit one place and one point below, and need victory to seal their spot with a game to spare.

Ahead of the clash we asked Onuoha and Wright-Phillips to come up with their best XI from both sides’ current squads.

There are plenty of similarities in their selections, with eight City and PSG players making the cut in both sides, but there's also a couple of surprises.

One of PSG’s famous attacking trident misses out, while there’s a slight surprise at right back in Onuoha’s team.

Find out who Nedum and SWP opted for below...

Ederson gets the nod ahead of Euro 2020 winner Gianluigi Donnarumma between the sticks in Nedum's XI, while there’s a 50:50 split in the former City defender’s back four.

Portuguese duo Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo line-up alongside Marquinhos and Achraf Hakimi, with the Moroccan international preferred at right back to Kyle Walker.

Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden start in a midfield three alongside Italian international Marco Verratti.

And it’s a PSG-dominated attack in Onuoha’s prospective team, with Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe flanking Neymar.

Wright-Phillips also opts for Ederson as his goalkeeper, while Marquinhos lines up alongside City trio Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo in the back four.

De Bruyne and Verratti once again make the cut, with Bernardo Silva completing the midfield three.

And SWP has chosen Foden over Neymar on the left flank, with the City man lining up alongside Messi and Mbappe at the sharp end.

Both Nedum and Shaun will discuss their selections in tonight's Matchday Live show, which gets underway at 18:45 (UK) and is available on all digital platforms.
