The injury to Leroy Sane means that Pep Guardiola’s front three pretty much picks itself, with Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero and in-form Brnardo Silva the only available players.It HAS to be time to give Kevin De Bruyne a rest – on the bench, of course – with Ilkay Gundogan doing well, and David Silva due to return.And with Aymeric Laporte apparently not ready to play after completing his record move, the defence should also sort itself out, with Vincent Kompany and Danilo stepping down to the bench, and John Stones and Aleks Zinchenko returning, as the Blues should be on the front foot from the off.
The Premier League is back! After a weekend off for FA Cup action, the best league in the world is upon us once again, and with 14 matches left in the season Manchester City remain in fantastic position to win the title. The Blues are currently 12 points clear at the top of the table, and if Tottenham Hotspur beat Manchester United the gap between 1st and 2nd place could be as big as 15 points.
