CONFIRMED: Manchester City line-up v Roma - Hart returns!

Manchester City Etihad 2

Here is the Manchester City team to take on AS Roma in the Champions League this evening.

Manchester City: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Demichelis, Clichy, Navas, Fernandinho, Yaya Toure, Silva, Aguero, Dzeko

Subs: Caballero, Sagna, Kolarov, Milner, Lampard, Jovetic, Mangala

Manchester City head into the Champions League game against Roma off the back of two very positive results.

City thrashed Sheffield Wednesday in the League Cup before following that up with a 4-2 win over Hull City in the Premier League last weekend, which gives the side momentum heading into the game this evening.

City were unfortunate not to take anything from their first Champions League game against Bayern Munich thanks to an effort from former defender Jerome Boateng in the closing moments of the game in Germany.

That makes three points this evening extremely important because another defeat could leave City in a very awkward position and scrambling to find a way through to the next round.

Pellegrini has good squad options at his disposal and if City can get out of the group then they should be confident their best side can give any team in Europe a decent match.
