Lineups are in:
TEAM NEWS @MCFC: Caballero, Sagna, Demichelis, Mangala, Kolarov, Navas, Fernandinho, Lampard, Milner, Toure (C), Dzeko— Manchester City FC (@MCFC) September 24, 2014
OWLS' SUBSTITUTES: Westwood, Semedo, Nuhiu, Drenthe, Helan, Hope, Dielna #swfc— Sheffield Wednesday (@swfc) September 24, 2014
Perhaps a slightly stronger lineup than most wanted/expected. Not too sure that Toure should be playing but maybe he won't play the full 90 anyways. Maybe Boyata should be in for Mangala as well. Notably, Nastasic's omission from the squad says a lot about his future at the club. The young Serbian didn't even make the bench. But, youngsters Jose Angel Pozo and Sinan Bytyqi have made the bench, and I'm sure we'd all like to see them at some point. For Wednesday, ex-City academy boy Jeremy Helan is on the bench.
Anyone else feel weird playing Wednesday on a Wednesday? Perhaps the
stars calendar has aligned...
