In what seems like an eternity since the completion of the 'six easy points' at old trafford we finally get back to football and its a game im really looking forward too.
City will welcome back Elano, Corluka and hopefully Johnson to the squad, it will be interesting too see what changes Sven makes if any, especially given these quotes :
"To change a team that wins at Manchester United, I don't know. Maybe, maybe not.
"They are good decisions to have for everyone at the club, even the players as there should be competition.
"Many times in the year that has not been the case."
Benjani will certainly make his home debut, following on from scoring the winner against United on his first appearance for the club, and could well make himself an instant hero.
The blue scouse meanwhile will welcome back Yobo as they look to snatch back fourth place from their near rivals. City can go level on points with everton and stay in touch of a European spot with a win.
I expect an intense tactical battle in this one. I can't see there been many goals but im leaning towards a 1-0 city win.
