Left Midfielder – Leroy Sane

As Manchester City seem to be unstoppable offensively during their recent spell, Leroy Sane has been a huge reason for that success. His pace has caused problems for opposing defenses, and I feel he should have a field-day against Sunderland’s struggling defense. Paired with Raheem Sterling on the opposite wing, these two have been Manchester City’s best players in the past few weeks.
