Manchester City starting XI to face Porto

Manchester City host Porto for their first game of the 2020/21 Champions League campaign, with Porto visitors for the fixture.

After returning to winning ways against Arsenal, Pep Guardiola and his players will be keen to put back to back victories together for the first time this season after Leicester City and Leeds United took points off them before the international break.

Aguero’s return to fitness is a major plus for the Mancunians as the Argentinian’s experience and finishing will be hugely important in what could prove to be a tricky home game in Europe.

Subs: Palmer, Bernabe, Nmecha, Doyle, Harwood-Bellis, Foden, Torres, Stones, Steffen, Zinchenko.
