The City boss may also look to get Joao Cancelo involved after his big-money switch from Juventus, with the Portugal international potentially playing at right wing-back if Kyle Walker is moved in-field.

Shakhtar Donetsk vs Manchester City Prediction

At this point, there’s really no much need for an argument as to City’s superiority over any other opponent they are pitted against.

Right now, they are backed into a corner due to their recent loss against Norwich, coupled with Liverpool’s 100% win-record, and this rightfully calls for a monster of a performance from the EPL champions.

Manchester City make the long trip to Ukraine to face Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on the back of a surprise 3-2 defeat to Norwich City on Saturday evening.

Meanwhile, Shakhtar have started their domestic campaign with seven successive victories, form which suggests that they could pose a threat to the Premier League champions.
