The City Blues flattered in October following a perfect start to the season. Surprisingly, Pep Guardiola’s side managed just two victories last month resulting in them losing their top spot in the Premier League.
Guardiola’s side were also on the wrong side of a 4-0 hammering from Barcelona a fortnight ago and will be hoping to avoid another heavy defeat tonight.
Barcelona will be without Andres Iniesta, Gerard Pique and Jeremy Mathieu who are all injured.
Meanwhile Vincent Kompany is expected to start for Man City after being rested over the weekend against West Brom. Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta are injury doubts going into the game.
Arda Turan is fit to start for Barcelona and may be deployed in Andres Iniesta’s place.
Manchester City probable line up: Caballero; Fernando, Stones, Otamendi, Kolarov; Fernandinho, Gundogan; Sterling, Nolito, Silva; Aguero
Barcelona probable line up: Ter Stegen; Roberto, Mascherano, Umtiti, Digne; Rakitic, Busquets, Rafinha; Messi, Suarez, Neymar
