David Silva is not travelling to Ukraine for Manchester City's final Champions League group game against Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday.

The Spain playmaker, who scored the late winner in the Premier League leaders' victory over West Ham on Sunday, is being rested for the Group F game in Kharkiv.

Kevin De Bruyne was also absent from the squad which left Manchester on Monday afternoon as he is suspended for the game.

Both players will be expected to return for the derby clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The only other notable omissions from the travelling party were injured defenders Benjamin Mendy and John Stones.

Youngsters Phil Foden, Brahim Diaz, Tosin Adarabioyo and Daniel Grimshaw were included by manager Pep Guardiola.

City are already assured of top spot in the group having won their opening five matches.
