They usually outnumber us in midfield. If it happens tomorrow they will win unfortunately.
not really their success against us mostly due to them preventing us connecting with our forwards and launching a counter. we usually have territorial advantage but they prevent us from turning that into attacking moves and forces us to keep the ball in midfield from side to side.

It'll be interesting to see who plays the Gundogan role. Bernardo I suppose is the obvious choice due to ball retention, but Foden is another option who offers a huge direct attacking threat. Grealish was speculated to be that guy but that may be a thing we see once he's more familiar and adapted to things.

I reckon we'll see a false 9 lineup, and I suspect it'll be one of Bernardo or Foden there. I do think we may need to be prepared for the possibility that some players are rested with PSG and Liverpool in mind, although I doubt it'll be the case that that happens. Foden in particular may be rested.

The team I think Pep will pick:

Ederson
Walker
Dias
Whoever's fitter out of Laporte and Stones, or Aké if neither
Cancelo
Rodri
De Bruyne
Foden
Grealish
Bernardo
Mahrez


He might decide Foden isn't quite physically ready for Chelsea with both PSG and Liverpool coming up, in which case I'd guess Bernardo further back and Jesus up top.

Chelsea are brilliant at everything that City struggle against. I expect this to be by far the hardest of the next three games. O-O would not surprise me one bit, just because they're so good defensively.

Grealish, Foden, Kdb and Bernie to occupy midfield. Plenty of legs and with enough technicality to keep the ball under pressure.

Don’t want to see a Fern or a Gundo.

We need to evolve the first 11 to include our best players. No more dropping 2 out of the 4 and then adding inferior players to the team.

Go for the chavs from the off. If not it will be a draw at best.
