Playmaker David Silva has been ruled out of Manchester City's Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund and is doubtful for this weekend's derby against Manchester United.

Manager Roberto Mancini confirmed the Spaniard has not travelled to Germany with the rest of the squad for the final Group D match at the Westfalenstadion due to a hamstring injury.

City will now hope the 26-year-old can recover in time to feature in Sunday's eagerly anticipated top-of-the-table Barclays Premier League encounter with United at the Etihad Stadium.
