Manuel Pellegrini welcomes Joe Hart back into the starting line-up for tonight's Champions League clash with Borussia Monchengladbach.

Manchester City are looking to bounce back from an opening group game defeat to Juventus and will also be relieved to see David Silva return to the side, who has not featured since that home defeat.

Both players missed Saturday's dispiriting defeat at Tottenham Hotspur, during which Yaya Toure came off with a knock. The Ivorian has recovered from a slight hamstring problem and starts alongside Fernandinho in midfield, with Fernando dropping to the bench.

The Argentinian pair of Nicolas Otamendi and Martin Demichelis play line up in the centre of defence, with Vincent Kompany and Eliaquim Mangala ruled out.

Borussia Monchengladbach: Sommer, Johnson, Christensen, Dominguez, Wendt, Stindl, Xhaka, Dahoud, Korb, Hermann, Raffael
