As we do before every match here at Bitter and Blue, we give the fans an opportunity to participate in a contest and choose their lineup for the next Manchester City match. We’ve done the same for this Saturday’s Premier League match against Stoke City at the Etihad, and you want the team that dominated Chelsea two weeks ago.
With a Champions League game against Napoli coming up on Tuesday, there’s a chance Pep Guardiola rotates his squad a little bit, but we never really know what’s on Pep’s mind from game to game. According to your votes Pep shouldn’t take any risks against a good Stoke side, and the best possible XI should be on the pitch to guarantee the win. There’s a small chance Fabian Delph misses this one through injury, but he should be fit to play.
Thank you so much for your votes and for your constant participation!
Bitter and Blue Community XI (4-3-3):
Éderson; Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Delph; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Silva; Sterling, Jesus, Sané
