After one of the only positive performers in the previous game, Rodri will keep his place. He’s also due his goal after the spectacular one vs. Copenhagen was outrageously ruled out.
After a midfield mash up from Pep at Anfield. A failed and hideous, Frankenstein like experiment. I don’t think we will see De Bruyne isolated on the right wing again. The Belgian is at his best when he has freedom to link up with attackers all around the box.
Again, along with Ederson and Rodri, the only other player who can hold his head high. Silva was arguably City’s MotM that day and Liverpool fans are still crying over the coffee thing. Dubbing him the Premier League’s most “unlikeable” player. HA. HA.
Interesting stat – we have never lost a game he has started! A massive lesson learnt after last weeks’ defeat was all the quality Calves Out brings to the side. Despite criticism since he joined Manchester City for lack of goals and assists, he brings much more and that was hugely missed in the last game – a game that was calling for everything he has.
Controversially had his cute goal disallowed at the weekend, however, didn’t manage to take advantage of being up against boring Grandad Milner at all. An opinion I will always stand by is that he is much more effective on the right – though great anywhere. An off game at Anfield, I expect him to keep his place after excellent home form this season.
Well, he hasn’t scored for 2 games and quite frankly, it isn’t good enough (WINK). We need another hat-trick performance to make up for it. We all miss him scoring. Didn’t get the service at Anfield.
Interestingly, Pep has made lots of substitutions this season – when we have been winning. We thought Pep had gotten over this phobia of subs, but it seems he needs some exposure therapy. Let’s go again this weekend!
We win together, and we lose together! What do you say, blues? CTWD!!!
What are your predicted starting XIs for the Manchester City vs. Brighton showdown?
