Silva back for City but Hart out for Saints clash

Nov 30, 2015, 00:39

In addition to the aforementioned trio Zenit St Petersburg have confirmed their place as group winners, whilst one of Atletico Madrid or Benfica will also emerge. With Vincent Kompany and Eliaquim Mangala out with injury, it looks like it will once again be Nicolas Otamendi and Martin Demichelis who will occupy the two center back positions.

But we showed we could ride out the hard moments and we qualified thanks to our quality. At the end we still maintained a certain balance throughout the match.

"We've had very hard defeats and it's always important to remember what we're doing because maybe when you qualify for the next stage of the Champions League, maybe that is the week our performance dipped. But we had chances and didn't score".

City came close to levelling in the 53rd minute when Buffon pushed Fernando's header onto the post before gathering the loose ball under pressure from Toure.

Hart has kept seven Premier League clean sheets this season and Pellegrini said: "We lost Joe in a very good moment but it is what happens. We all know the philosophy that we have and we'll try and play our game there". Scholes feels United would have won more Champions Leagues themselves between 2007 and 2011 had it not been for Barcelona, because they had by then perfected their tactical approach in Europe.

City paid £4.4 million for Caballero in July 2014, as per BBC Sport, but he has been a substitute for the vast majority of his time at the club.

Sevilla, beaten 4-2 at Borussia Moenchengladbach, must beat Juventus in their last game and hope the Germans lose to City so they finish third in the group and go into the Europa League.

"I am not so unhappy in the way we played because we didn't have many chances to make substitutions". With the return of Silva, it is highly likely that Jesus Navas will return to the bench in favor of Kevin De Bruyne, who will occupy the left, and Raheem Sterling, who will occupy the right and could cause Southampton issues with his blistering pace.

Pogba could not be contained and a brilliant backheel to release Mandzukic caught City completely unaware, but the visitors were rescued by an offside flag.
