Manchester City take on Borussia Mönchengladbach tonight in the Champions League Round of 16 first leg. With the away goals rule haunting the Blues in the past, Pep Guardiola's side will want to take a good lead back to Manchester for the return leg. 

Here's how the side is lined up for this mouthwatering clash...

-----

Ederson, of course, starts in goal. At right-back, Kyle Walker comes into the side with Joao Cancelo switching over to the left-back position. That leaves a centre-back pairing of Ruben Dias and Aymeric Laporte - who replaces John Stones.

Rodri comes into the side, replacing the captain Fernandinho. In front of the Spaniard is the pairing of Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan.

Phil Foden returns to the starting line-up, this time off the left. With Sunday's match-winner Raheem Sterling on the opposite flank. That leaves space for Gabriel Jesus up-front - who was rested during the Premier League fixture at Arsenal.
