Predicted Manchester City Line-up To Face Feyenoord In The Champions League

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are the team to beat this season as they remain unbeaten in the Premier League this season. They also top their UCL group with 4 wins from 4 games, with the last one coming against the mighty SSC Napoli. The Citizens are back in action this week as they face Dutch side Feyenoord in their next Champions League match.

They are fresh from a comfortable victory over Leicester City at the weekend and will be confident of winning this game too.

Team News

John Stones and Benjamin Mendy remain the only absentees from the squad to face Feyenoord this week. Guardiola otherwise has a fully fit squad to chose from.

Formation: 4-3-3

Manager: Pep Guardiola

GK – Claudio Bravo

With Ederson being the first choice in the league, Bravo should replace him for this UCL game, like he has done in the last few outings in the competition.

RB – Kyle Walker

The former Spurs man is now an integral part of the squad at the Etihad and is expected to keep his place at the right-back position.

Kyle Walker

CB – Eliaquim Mangala

Mangala replaced John Stones against Leicester and should continue in his place. This game is a great opportunity for Mangala to prove a point to Pep.

CB – Nicolas Otamendi

Partnering Kompany should be Argentine star Otamendi, who has been one of the most consistent players in this role in England this season.

LB – Danilo

Though Delph has been effect at LB, Guardiola should go back to the more tried and tested Danilo for this European clash.

CDM – Fernandinho

Ilkay Gundogan might be pushing for a start but the manager should not tinker with a lineup that is working wonders and should start the Brazilian as the deepest of the midfielders.

David Silva

CM – David Silva

Silva is the clog in the midfield that makes things work at the Etihad and will be the danger man for Man City in this game.

CM – Kevin de Bruyne

Easily the most impressive midfielder in the PL this season, De Bruyne should start in his usual midfield role, trying to add to his already astonishing numbers.

RW – Raheem Sterling

The youngster has lost his place in the last few games for City but he is expected to be back in action, on the right wing.

LW – Leroy Sane

The pacey winger has been in impressive goalscoring form and should start on the left-hand side of City’s attack.

ST – Gabriel Jesus

With Aguero starting regularly in the league, Guardiola might want to rest him and go with Gabriel Jesus up front.

Here is how Man City might line up:
