Guardiola: My Manchester City side are learning to win in Fergie Time

Man Utd vs Man City: Sergio Aguero faces AXE for Old Trafford showdown

Man Utd vs Man City: Sergio Aguero faces AXE for Old Trafford showdown

City will be without midfielder David Silva, who picked up an injury after his late victor against West Ham United on Sunday, while Kevin De Bruyne is serving a one-match suspension in Europe.

Pep Guardiola will not allow his Manchester City players to rest on their laurels tomorrow night when they face Shakhtar Donetsk, despite having already won the group and qualified.

Asked about the speculation, the 46-year-old said at his pre-match press conference: 'My head and my heart are with Shakhtar'.

Manchester City left it late yet again as they came from behind to beat West Ham 2-1 on Sunday and restore their eight-point advantage at the top of the Premier League.

Shakhtar have nine points and now occupy second place in Group F, having traded victories with Napoli, whose two defeats to City leave them on six points.

Shakhtar have won their two home games in the Champions League so far this season, scoring also 2 goals in each of their last four outings on home soil.

"Hopefully he can be fit for Sunday but it was too risky to play him [Wednesday]".

"I said to the players in the locker room that the guy who does not want to play against Shakhtar, let me know please", Guardiola said after the West Ham game, insisting the forthcoming fixture in Ukraine would not be an afterthought. "We will try to be there (in the final)", Guardiola, who failed to win a trophy with City in his first season, told reporters on Tuesday.

"We spoke a lot about defending set pieces but they are taller", Guardiola added. "I assure you, sooner or later we will lose, but the next day we will recover".

"We're disappointed not to have taken anything from the game but we're really proud of the players".

They are serious contenders for the Champions League, with them, PSG and Bayern Munich the favourites for me, but I do see an awkward result coming somewhere and Shakhtar are a decent side.

"It was similar to the last few games, in the second half I thought we would score. We believe in what we can do".
