TEAM NEWS: Eric Garcia starts for Manchester City against Porto 

Manchester City are set to host FC Porto at the Etihad Stadium in a Champions League group C opener. 

City's coach Pep Guardiola has made two changes to the squad that beat Arsenal 1-0 over the weekend with Eric Garcia getting a surprising start at centre-back despite almost leaving on the Deadline Day. He replaces Nathan Ake, who isn’t in the squad. Also, Ilkay Gundogan replaces Phil Foden and Sergio Aguero starts his second game in a week since returning from injury. 

Kevin De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus, Aymeric Laporte, and Benjamin Mendy remain sidelined.

Manchester City XI: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Garcia, Cancelo, Gundogan, Rodrigo, Mahrez, Bernardo, Sterling, Aguero

Subs: Steffen, Carson, Stones, Zinchenko, Torres, Fernandinho, Foden, Nmecha, Doyle, Harwood-Bellis, Palmer, Bernabe

Porto XI: Marchesin, Sarr, Mbemba, Pepe, Sanusi, Sergio Oliveira, Fabio Vieira, Uribe, Corona, Marega, Luis Diaz.
