KEEPS HIS PLACE – Statistically speaking Grealish had a more influential game than Foden on Sunday, though Grealish is the Manchester City teen Twitter scapegoat.
Looking a threat whenever he is on the ball, after some defensive work he started off the move that led to Haalands second goal of the game.
Grealish could be an excellent choice should Bournemouth play a low block at the Etihad on Saturday. Just by drawing fouls alone, he could create some mouth-watering chances.
However, with my right-wing prediction, I think that for tactical and balance purposes, Foden would be my preferred choice.
REPLACES FODEN – After Manchester City’s 21/22 highest goal scorer was left on the bench against West Ham, Mahrez could be in for a start at home against Bournemouth.
Last season he made 28 appearances, 21 wins, 3 losses, 11 goals and 5 assists. Can he step up again this season?
OBVIOUS STARTER – He’s Haaland.
What are your predicted line-ups, blues?
