Man City boss Guardiola rules out rotations for Atalanta

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has ruled out rotations ahead of their Champions League clash with Atalanta.

City will book their place in the last 16 of the Champions League if they win in Italy.

City have won their three matches and will secure top spot in Group C if they beat Atalanta and Dinamo Zagreb draw with Shakhtar Donetsk.

David Silva is not in the squad after he suffered a muscular problem during Saturday's 2-1 win over Southampton.

"I want to qualify as soon as possible; I'm not thinking about rotating." said City boss Guardiola.

"We will try to win, but if not, there is Shakhtar at home and Dinamo Zagreb away."
