Roberto Mancini knows there is no room for error as his Manchester City side look to launch a Champions League salvage operation.

City are facing the very real possibility of premature elimination from the competition for a second successive season after collecting just one point from their opening three Group D games. They now host the Ajax side that beat them 3-1 in Amsterdam a fortnight ago looking for a victory to at least breathe some life into their misfiring campaign.

The task is made harder by a host of injuries with Joleon Lescott and James Milner the latest additions to a casualty list that includes Micah Richards, David Silva and Maicon. Mancini said: "We have this problem with some important players injured but when you have this problem, it is a time that all the players can put more on the pitch. This is the last chance for us."
