A product of the Shakhtar academy, the 21-year-old will no doubt be looking to make his mark on the pitch against his former club.
Pep Guardiola’s men head into the game in fine fettle having won four of their last five games, and dispatched Burnley 5-0 at the Etihad on Saturday.

City are second behind the French side after two matches.
