    City pre-match press conference is scheduled for 6.30pm rather than the usual 1.30pm

    So according the City website/App, Stones, Sergio & D.Silva didn't train this morning so a good indication they won't be involved (Also Fern is suspended so he wont be)

    it notes that Foden will definitely be involved a per Peps comments on Saturday & also that Harwwod-Bellis & Garcia also took part in the session. No mention of Doyle, Braaf etc... At a guess given the U19's need to win to qualify they'll be with them.

    We should get a squad list later today when they fly out

    Team supported:
    City
    Pep played him in the crucial games against Spurs and Leicester, he has nothing against him, of course. Dave was voted captain by the players themselves. Given his legendary status and him being the captain of the team, it's only natural that Pep has played him more than Phil. Foden will get more chances now including in important games.

    Absolutely ludicrous squad to pick for a game that has zero meaning, literally zero! Only players from the first team that should be flying out are the ones who haven’t had enough games and/or just returning from injury, i.e bravo, Carson Foden, Garcia, THB, zinchenko and maybe Mendy, rest should be at the Cfa working all week on the many deficiencies we’ve amassed.

    The whole u-19’s have an important game to play reasoning is crap too, they could go on to win the thing and still get less from that competition than they would playing this one game against an infinitely better side.

    If this was klopp he’d send the kids and rest his big players, no surprise they get far less injuries than us.

    I guess we won't see Tommy Doyle for another 3 years then and his early appearance was just a fluke.

    I wouldn't be so sure Foden will start, Pep only said he'll be involved.

    Probably an 85th minute substitution based on recent decisions.

    Don’t play any of the usual suspects. Give them a rest if they’re so tired.

    This game doesn’t matter, so play a tinkered side.

    Probably won’t play Foden or Doyle til they’re at least 23.
    If they’re good enough, they’re old enough. Get them played.
