City have been handed a Champions League sting after learning each group stage game will be followed by an away Premier League fixture.

The Blues will have three home games and three away matches in the group stages and they will be followed by trips to Chelsea, Fulham and QPR as well as north-west derbies against Blackburn, Manchester United and Liverpool.

Here are some dates and info that you need to make a note of for the three knock-out competitions Roberto Mancini’s side are involved in.

The Blues will enter the Carling Cup at the third round stage this season due to Champions League qualification. That means just five wins away from another Wembley final – the dates for this year’s competition are:

Round 3: 21 September

Round 4: 26 October

Round 5: 30 November

Semi-final, first leg: 11 January
