As expected, Yaya Toure returns to City's midfield this evening - one of two changes from the side that drew 0-0 at Norwich.
Pablo Zabaleta also returns to the starting line-up, with Bacary Sagna not in the squad and Wilfried Bony dropping to the bench.
Hart, Zabaleta, Otamendi, Kompany, Clichy, Fernando, Fernandinho, Silva, Toure, Navas, Aguero
Subs: Caballero, Demichelis, Kolarov, Mangala, Sterling, M Garcia, Bony
Tactics and formation:
Will Fernandinho reprise his wide right role against Kyiv? With Jesus Navas starting, it seems unlikely with David Silva and Toure probably the three attacking midfielders behind Sergio Aguero in a 4-2-3-1 formation.
Zabaleta and Gael Clichy will be expected to support the forwards down the flanks while Fernando enjoys a deserved extended run in the first team.
