Shakhtar Donetsk vs Manchester City, Champions League: Predicted Lineups

After late victories against Huddersfield Town and Southampton, Silva scored with seven minutes on the clock for a City side who, in cantering to an eight-point lead, are showing all the hallmarks of champions-elect.

Manchester City playmaker, Kevin De Bruyne, has said he wishes Paul Pogba was available for Sunday's Derby, as he enjoys coming up against the best players.

Kevin de Bruyne is another who has not made the journey to Ukraine with the Belgium worldwide set to serve a one-match suspension after picking up three yellow cards in the group phase of the competition.

"I don't believe in that s**t, I'm a very straight forward guy". If someone believes it is karma then OK.

There are never any guarantees in football, of course, and Guardiola will still have his work cut out to get one over his old rival Jose Mourinho, especially now his players have tasted defeat for the first time in months. Given the amount of times they have come up with late winners recently, you would have to say the omens are good. We just have to be focused on whatever we're doing. It was massive. They played 10 players inside the box, it was nearly impossible.

The draw stirred fond memories for Southgate of playing for England against Tunisia at France 98, a match they won 2-0. Panama scored just nine goals in their final 10 qualifiers; their threat does not lie in their attacking play.

Pogba, prior to his red card against Arsenal, is hoping City pick up injuries to key players.

A win would see City move 11 points clear at the top of the league, extending their impressive unbeaten stretch and put them in an even more dominant position. "It's a good gap but doesn't mean anything", De Bruyne added. "We are going to need him as well for the derby". "It's up to Chelsea to win their games and keep up with City, and hopefully Chelsea don't slip up". "But the teams have been playing closed, we have had difficulty finding the spaces there, because there are a lot of people in front of the box".

"So if that starts happening with them as well maybe we'll get a little difference". We'll play the same there.

De Bruyne, who is suspended for the Shakhtar trip, said: "Our winning run is phenomenal and gives us a good advantage but we have a big week with Swansea and Tottenham following the United game".
