Kyle Walker hopes to return to Manchester City's Champions League meeting against Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday night.

Walker had to deal with Chelsea on Saturday afternoon. Pep Guardiola chose Joao Cancelo as right-back, Fernandinho as partner of John Stones as central defender of City.

And Walker has warned his teammates that the time at Etihad is never guaranteed, as the competition is high for the season.

"I just think it's the team's standard, it's such a strong competition for places all over the field," Walker said of Match of the Day 2.

"I was unlucky, I had to suspend yesterday, you just have to take it on the chin and hopefully I'm in the team for the Champions League game."

Manchester City came from behind to beat Chelsea after Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez had canceled the opening for N & # 39; Golo Kante.

And Walker also paid tribute to Mahrez for the character he showed when he returned to the team.

"Credit where credit is due, he had to sit a few weeks on the sidelines," he said.

"I think that shows the character and the faith he has in himself to reach the individual goal and the winner."
