Shakhtar beats Man City to reach Champions League last 16

Shakhtar beats Man City to reach Champions League last 16

City visit Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday having taken five wins from five in Group F. Paris Saint Germain, who take on Bayern Munich on Tuesday, are the only other team in the competition yet to drop a point. He will now get that opportunity in the fiery atmosphere of a Manchester derby.

Mourinho confirmed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has not been involved in United's last two matchday squads as he continues his recovery from a long-term cruciate knee ligament injury, has a "big chance" of featuring against City. It is a big game, the first against second, so everybody will be up for it.

The midfielder's first touch was poor and took him wide, but as the City defence stood off, he cut inside onto his right foot and curled a sumptuous shot into the top corner. Phil Foden, the 17-year-old No.10 tipped for a bright future, played at left-back. Pep Guardiola said in his pre-match presser that he wants his team to win this game, but that doesn't mean he'll go with a really strong team. Yaya Toure and Tosin Adarabioyo, who have only seen action in the Carabao Cup, also started.

The commission noted that the McLaren Report did not mention that the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) participated in the system. Mutko, who was sports minister at the time of the 2014 Sochi Olympics, remains head of the 2018 World Cup organizing committee.

"I would think that Mourinho will play a more cautious game". Brahim and Foden are City's two brightest youth prospects and any first-team opportunities can not be taken for granted.

"We just play to win the game", Guardiola said. But it's not always about winning or losing - it's about playing the same way we always do and giving our all.

Silva scored City's victor against West Ham on Sunday.

Warm Tuesday, but wet snow possible late this week
We will likely start Tuesday in the upper 50°s to near 60°, but once the front passes temperatures will drop quickly. Monday night: 20 percent chance of patchy drizzle before 1 a.m., then a slight chance of light rain after 1 a.m.

And the Brazilian won the stoppage time penalty, falling theatrically under negligible contact from Bohdan Butko, that Argentine substitute Sergio Aguero rammed into the roof of the net.It will be a different City, though, that run out against Jose Mourinho's Manchester United on Sunday.

He said: "Maybe [it is] good for me to get a little bit of rest and prepare myself for Sunday".

A late David Silva goal completed a 2-1 victory over West Ham on Sunday and if City beat United at Old Trafford for the second successive season under manager Pep Guardiola, they will equal Arsenal's Premier League record of 14 straight wins, which straddled two seasons in 2002.

Lindelof reflects on start to life at Man Utd
Selected for tomorrow, yes, for sure. "He is selected for tomorrow for sure - to start or be on the bench I can not answer". However, on the subject of whether Shaw will start the match, Mourinho said at a press conference: " I'd have to think ".
