Confirmed Manchester City line-up to play Sevilla: Summer signing rested

Here is how Manchester City will line up for this evening’s match against Sevilla.

Manchester City starting XI: Hart, Sagna, Otamendi, Kompany, Kolarov, Fernando, Fernandinho, Toure, Navas, Sterling, Bony

Manchester City subs: Caballero, Clichy, Demichelis, Mangala, Delph, Barker, De Bruyne

Manchester City take on Spanish side Sevilla this evening as they attempt to move ever closer to the Champions League knockout stages.

City defeated Sevilla 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium in the reverse fixture last month courtesy of a last-gasp goal from summer signing Kevin De Bruyne, and they are likely to be in for another very tough encounter this evening.

City are currently second in Group D, one point behind leaders Juventus and three clear of tonight’s opponents, so a win would go a long way to securing a place in the top two.

City are still without a whole host of first-team stars including integral duo David Silva and Sergio Aguero, but in De Bruyne they have a player who can make all the difference in the tightest of encounters.

After this game City take on Aston Villa in the Premier League before welcoming Liverpool to the Etihad Stadium on the other side of the next international break.
