TEAM NEWS: Injured Falcao misses out on Man City clash

The Colombia international misses out with a hip problem while Pep Guardiola has opted for Fernandinho in midfield over Yaya Toure

Monaco are without star striker Radamel Falcao for the second leg of their Champions League clash against Manchester City.

How Pep is changing City’s defence

The forward suffered a hip injury against Bordeaux on Saturday, and despite hopes he would at least be fit enough to make the bench against City, he is not included in the 18-man squad.

City, meanwhile, have opted for Fernandinho over Yaya Toure in central midfield while Aleksander Kolarov partners John Stones at the heart of defence.

Otherwise Pep Guardiola’s side are as expected, with Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero leading the line.
City lead the tie 5-3 on aggregate as they look to book their place in the quarter-finals of Europe’s premier club competition.

Monaco: Subasic; Sidibe, Raggi, Jemerson, Mendy; Fabinho, Bakayoko, Lemar; Bernardo Silva, Germain, Mbappe. Subs: De Sanctis, Jorge, Dirar, Moutinho, Cardona, Diallo, Toure.

Manchester City: Caballero; Sagna, Stones, Kolarov, Clichy; Fernandinho; Sterling, De Bruyne, Silva, Sane; Aguero. Subs: Bravo, Zabaleta, Otamendi, Delph, Toure, Navas, Iheanacho.
