This is the first ever meeting between these two clubs.

Brazilian international Fernando could face his former club after moving from Shakhtar back in 2013.

September has seen a gluttony of goals for Manchester City as they have scored 22 goals in just five matches - an average of 4.4 per game.

What makes that statistic even more impressive is the fact that they have conceded just once at the other end, with the only man to have breached City’s net during that time being Claudio Yacob of West Bromwich Albion.

Yacob, Wayne Rooney and Charlie Daniels are the only players to have scored against Manchester City so far this season.

During September, Sergio Aguero has scored six goals while German international Leroy Sane is hot on his heels with five goals in five matches.

Manchester City have scored an average of 3.5 goals per game in the Premier League while conceding an average of 0.33 per game at the other end.

Shakhtar Donetsk currently sit top of the Ukrainian Premier League, two points clear of arch-rivals Dynamo Kiev.

In Facundo Ferreyra and Marcos they have the joint top scorers in the Ukrainian Premier League with both players having scored five goals each.
