Manchester City are set to dominate Europe's Team of the Year.

The City stars, led by skipper Vincent Kompany, keeper Joe Hart and striker Mario Balotelli, have been shortlisted by Onze Mondial magazine for its annual awards. Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure, Joleon Lescott, David Silva and Micah Richards could also be voted into the French monthly's European XI.

Mancini is up against Manchester United rival Alex Ferguson, Real Madrid's Jose Mourinho and Barcelona's Pep Guardiola for the manager's prize.
