Bert Trautmann: Manchester City legend

Trautmann, who died in July, famously played on in the 1956 FA Cup Final despite suffering a broken neck and was one of the greatest goalkeepers of his era.

A former German prisoner of war, he made 545 appearances for City between 1949 and 1964.

Monday night's game at the Etihad Stadium will be dedicated to Trautmann and a wreath laying ceremony will take place at 7pm, attended by 24 members of his family.

The matchday programme will have a 16-page pull-out tribute and the first-team squad will warm up in shirts with 'Trautmann 1' on the back. The shirts will be auctioned and proceeds donated to the Trautmann Foundation.

There will also be a minute's applause before kick-off and players will wear black armbands during the match.

Manchester City v Newcastle is live on Monday Night Football, Sky Sports 1HD, 7pm
