Manchester City XI vs Dortmund: Starting lineup, confirmed team news and injury latest for game today

Manchester City could welcome back John Stones to their line-up for today’s Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund.

The England international missed the win over Sevilla last time out but is available once more to ease a defensive injury crisis.

Indeed, City were forced into an uncharacteristically late move during the final stages of the summer transfer window, bringing in Manuel Akanji – who makse his debut - to cover for Aymeric Laporte’s injury. Stones moves to right-back.

The Spanish international does not play despite returning to training having undergone knee surgery before the start of the season and Kyle Walker is not fit to return after limping off against Aston Villa earlier this month.
