Manchester City Subdues Shaktar Donetsk 3 - 0 Despite Injury Woes

 

City boss Pep Guardiola was forced to deploy Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho at centre-back after losing Aymeric Laporte and John Stones to recent injuries.

But Fernandinho slotted in comfortably at the back as City easily subdued Shakhtar with first-half goals from Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan at the Metalist Stadium.

Gabriel Jesus netted City’s third goal in the closing stages to ensure they made the flight with three points stowed away.
