I never thought I'd see the day when we had a 1st 11 that didn't include Kompany or David Silva - I know they had WC and all that but still freaks me out.
Sané to definitely start next week
Not sure how many changes we’ll make, as Guardiola will have a job managing fitness levels and game sharpness. Those players who took less rest after the WC will have to be rested at some point, otherwise they’ll be jaded later in the season, whereas those resting now will need to regain their sharpness at some point, and hopefully not all at once.
These are the games where we should be striving to get three goals clear as fast as possible and then allow 3 subs maximum game time.
Early goal needed for us so at least them playing a flat back 9 will just be about our goal difference.
Much as I like their manager they were a disgrace (and yes I know they're limited) in both games last season.
The game at their place was probably the most extreme example of bus parking I think I've ever seen. Basically made no attempt to move out of their defensive third in any way.
After being brushed aside by Chelsea they will probably be even more defensive. Hopefully City can break through early on or it could be a frustrating day. Be interesting to see Pep's tactics for this one.
we must go 2 up top in aguero jesus at home vs huddersfield and drop gundogan from the hold midfield you don't need 2 in there at home and play KDB and B.silva together and sane or sterling or mahrez wide and fernandinho holding and the 2 centrebacks defending with both mendy and walker wing backs
the big thing is the options pep has this season and not only mendy being back B.silva looks a new player in the D.silva role also the bench is going to be so strong, so the options we have make us better this season and rotation will be used more and like yesterday the team played without big players and still looked the part
We should be able to win this one, and I think we might even see three at the back.
Same lineup I was hoping we could face Arsenal with
