Welcome to our live coverage of tonight's Champions League Group D clash between Borussia Monchengladbach and Manchester City.

• The visitors will once again be without Fabian Delph, Gael Clichy, Eliaquim Mangala and Vincent Kompany, who are all injured

Yaya Toure, David Silva, Joe Hart and Pablo Zabaleta have all travelled and trained with the first team on Tuesday

• Wilfried Bony, however, is a doubt for Manuel Pellegrini's side who suffered a 2-1 defeat in their opening group game against Juventus

• City followed the setback against Juventus with back-to-back league defeats against West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur

• Gladbach also lost their opening group game, going down to a 3-0 defeat against Sevilla, but have bounced back with consecutive league victories

• Lucien Favre, who led Gladbach to third place in the league last season, resigned five days after the Sevilla loss. His replacement is Andre Schubert.

• No English club has ever beaten the Bundesliga side in their own stadium

• City, meanwhile, have lost three of their four trips to Germany in the Champions League
