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 Crystal Palace, and you clearly want a very strong team.
Even though Palace are bottom of the league with no points and no goals in their first five games, you clearly want Pep Guardiola and the players to take the game very seriously. You’ve selected what seems to be the strongest City lineup at the moment, with all the players rested against West Brom coming back.
And one thing from the vote that is clear is that you love Leroy Sané. You wanted the German to start against West Brom, and after his performance at The Hawthorns you want him to start this one as well. You’re absolutely right, and Pep will probably agree with you too.
Below is your full selection, and thank you so much for playing along with us!
Bitter and Blue XI (4-3-3):
Éderson; Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Mendy; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Silva; Jesus, Agüero, Sané
