With my last reverse-jinx post paying off so well, I'm a little unsure how to handle this one. Let's keep it simple, with no predictions or sweeping claims.
Team news: The only player unavailable is Sergio Aguero. Jesus Navas is back, Yaya is fine, and everyone else is in various stages of match fitness.
Predicted lineup: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Demichelis, Kolarov, Garcia, Yaya, Milner, Silva, Nasri, Dzeko.
I think that Pellegrini has grown more accustomed to playing 3 attacking midfielders behind Dzeko, and don't see him using a tired Negredo or seldom-used Jovetic at this point in the season. Not sure why he hasn't been starting Fernandinho, but I think he might bring him off the bench again today.
I want Milner in there to give cover to Yaya going forward, as well as help cover wingers at the back.
That's about all I'm prepared to say about things right now. Now I can get back to nervously counting down the hours till kick-off.
COME ON CITY!!!!
