Manchester City’s continued Champions League participation is in serious doubt after three poor performances saw them bottom of their group with just a single point.

It will take an incredible escape act if Roberto Mancini’s side are to claw their way into the knockout stages this season and avoid a similar fate to last season.

The Etihad Stadium club have looked a little disjointed in recent weeks, which culminated in a dismal scoreless draw with West Ham United.

So they will need to be back to something like their best when Ajax visit if they are to begin the road to recovery.

They have defensive issues going into the clash, however, as Joleon Lescot, Maicon and Micah Richards are all out injured, while Kolo Toure was not named in the Champions League squad at the start of the season.

Meanwhile, midfielders David Silva, James Milner and Jack Rodwell will also miss out, leaving Mancini with creativity issues for a must-win game.

Predicted line-up:

Hart; Zabaleta, Kompany, Nastasic, Kolarov; Garcia, Yaya Toure, Barry, Nasri; Aguero, Tevez.
