Manchester City make two changes for their Champions League clash with Basel.

Manchester City have made two changes from the side that defeated Leicester City 5-1 at the weekend for this evening's Champions League clash with Basel.

Captain Vincent Kompany and Fabian Delph have been drafted into the Sky Blues' defence in place of Oleksandr Zinchenko and the injured Aymeric Laporte.

On the City bench, manager Pep Guardiola could call upon playmaker David Silva and Germany winger Leroy Sane in Switzerland as both players have overcome injuries to claim places in the squad.

Hosts Basel line up in a 5-4-1 formation with Dimitri Oberlin serving as the lone striker.

Taulant Xhaka and Bias Riveros will feature in a five-man defence for the Swiss outfit, while midfielder Luca Zuffi passed a late fitness test to claim a spot on the bench alongside former Norwich City striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel.

Basel: Vaclik; Lang, Xhaka, Lacroix, Suchy, Riveros; Stocker, Die, Frei, Elyounoussi; Oberlin
Subs: Van Wolfswinkel, Zuffi, Salvi, Ajeti, Bua, Petretta, Manzambi

Manchester City: Ederson; Walker, Kompany, Otamendi, Delph; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Gundogan; B.Silva, Aguero, Sterling
Subs: Bravo, Danilo, Stones, Laporte, Sane, Silva, Foden
