TEAM NEWS: Hart, Zabaleta, Kolo Toure, Nastasic, Rekik, Garcia, Barry, Silva, Yaya Toure, Aguero, Tevez #cityvreading— Manchester City FC (@MCFC) December 22, 2012
A normal attacking 6 but a very interesting back 4. If someone had told me before the season began that this combination would be starting a Premier League match, I would have had a hard time believing that. But nonetheless, 18-year-old stud Karim Rekik is making his full City debut, with both Vincent Kompany and Joleon Lescott on the bench. This could be the beginning of a great, long career at the Etihad for the young man.
