As we always do before every match here at Bitter and Blue, we give the fans an opportunity to participate in a contest and choose their favorite lineup for the next Manchester City game. We’ve done the same for Tuesday night’s League Cup match against Wolverhampton, and you clearly want Pep Guardiola to make big rotations.
According to your votes, only two players from Saturday’s game against Burnley should stay in the team: Fabian Delph and Bernardo Silva. You also want Claudio Bravo to come in for Ederson Moraes in goal, which is a nice surprise. You want to give chances to kids like Tosin Adarabioyo and Oleksandr Zinchenko, and you’re giving Fernandinho, Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva a night off.
Below is the full lineup according to your votes. Thanks so much for your participation!
Bitter and Blue XI (4-3-3):
Bravo; Danilo, Adarabioyo, Mangala, Delph; Gundogan, Touré, Zinchenko; Bernardo, Jesus, Sterling
