Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling is back in contention for the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie away at Real Madrid tonight.

Sterling had been out for three weeks with a hamstring injury and midfielder David Silva could also play at the Bernabeu after a minor knee issue.

Winger Leroy Sane is unavailable as he recovers from a long-term knee problem.

Real forward Eden Hazard, who left Chelsea in June, could miss the rest of the season with a fractured ankle.
