Portsmouth V Manchester City - Review

3rd versus 6th in the premiership in a game that up until a couple of years ago could have quite easily been 3rd and 6 th bottom of the championship.

Both teams have wealthy backers of course these days and with that comes a demand for success which both are achieving at the moment. A win for city and a win for Blackburn could see us briefly go top ! whilst a win for Portsmouth could see them snatch the third place we currently hold.

On the injury front , Micah should return with Michael Johnson out for around 2/3 weeks.
Personally if Nedum Onohua is fit I would like to see him going into right back, Corluka into the middle and Micah pushed into the centre of midfield where he played most of his youth football. I just think his athleticism alongside Hamman's know how would give us a lot more presence in midfield, which is something we have lacked recently.

Prediction :

There has never been a goal less draw at Fratton Park between the two teams, and both sides have a 100% record when scoring first so it could be first goal wins !! Portsmouth have the superior firepower and are at home so ith should make for a good open game. Im going for a city defeat im afraid 2-1 to Harrys twitchers.
