Manchester City have already booked their place in the knockout stage. With 15 points, 13 goals and just three conceded, they take on Shakhtar Donetsk knowing top spot is guaranteed.
Their Ukrainian opponents are in a fight with Napoli for second. Three points ahead of the Italian side, they know a draw at home will be enough to cause a massive upset.
Usually, with the Manchester derby ahead this weekend, you would expect wholesale changes to Pep Guardiola’s team, but with City’s winning run extending to 20 after the 2-1 victory over West Ham, they won’t want to let it slip just yet.
