Here’s how it aligns today …
Although Ederson exclusively told City Xtra that he is back in Manchester City training, Zack Steffen begins his third consecutive game. At the rear right, Joao Cancelo continues its main role. As will Benjamin Mendy, who hasn’t looked at all this season – but starts at left-back today. That leaves a pair of Ruben Dias center-backs and strangely Kyle Walker.In the middle of the field, Rodri comes back to the side after a brief appearance on the bench midweek, in front of him is the pairing of Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden.
Operating on the left, Bernardo silva will seek to create chances to cut inside. On the opposite side, Riyad Mahrez will return to a more familiar role on the wing following his appearance as a striker against United. Speaking of the attacker, Gabriel Jesus leads the line for Manchester City.It was also revealed by Jose Alvarez that Sergio Agüero’s omission from the matchday squad is not due to injury. It appeared that there was a positive case of Covid-19 near him and that he needed to be quarantined until a new test was undertaken. The club’s official line on the others absent is that Aymeric Laporte and Nathan Ake are both injured, while Raheem Sterling, Ferran Torres and Tommy Doyle are.not fully fit». —–
