Pep Guardiola is spoilt for choice when it comes to his Manchester City starting lineup to face Tottenham on Saturday. Midfielder Fernandinho is back in contention as the Premier League champions have close to a fully-fit squad available against Mauricio Pochettino's Spurs. The Brazilian missed last week's 5-0 thrashing of West Ham having returned to training late following international duty, and will be pushing for Rodri's defensive midfield role. Winger Leroy Sane is the only major absentee as he awaits knee surgery while left-back Benjamin Mendy is unlikely to be involved as he builds up match fitness. Bernardo Silva did not get off the bench at London Stadium, but is almost certain to start this time around. Summer signing Joao Cancelo is in contention, but it would be a surprise to see Guardiola drop Kyle Walker as right-back. Man City predicted lineup Ederson; Kyle Walker, John Stones, Aymeric Laporte, Oleksandr Zinchenko; Kevin de Bruyne, Fernandinho, David Silva; Riyad … [Read more...] about How will Man City line up vs Tottenham?

With Man City recording an impressive 3-1 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday, there are two players in the squad who could be set for a FIFA 19 Team of the Week inclusion. The FUT TOTW 31 will be announced on Wednesday April 17 at 3pm, with both Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling in contention for a place in the starting XI. The Belgian midfielder provided two assists and was named Man of the Match, whilst Sterling got on the scoresheet twice. But only one player from each team can be named. Manchester United's Paul Pogba also has a chance of being included after scoring two goals, albeit both penalties, as United beat West Ham 2-1 at Old Trafford. As a reminder, players who were included in last week's TOTW are not eligible for selection this week, as are players who have been involved in a recent promotion. The TOTW line-up is picked on single performances only, so goals and assists are not added accumulatively within the TOTW period. Here are our FIFA 19 Ultimate Team TOTW … [Read more...] about Man City and Man United stars named FIFA 19 Ultimate Team TOTW 31 predictions
In normal circumstances, a football club's most talented - and most costly - left-back would be a dead-cert to play in an FA Cup semi-final. But it is perhaps typical of Benjamin Mendy's Manchester City career that his place in the Blues' starting XI for the trip to Wembley on Saturday evening is closer to unlikely than uncertain. Part of his situation is down to injuries, of course. Two serious knee problems in as many season is tantamount to the most rotten of luck, yet the niggling concern remains that the France international is not helping himself. Mendy has made just 20 appearances over the course of his City career to date and the feeling is that his exploits off the pitch are having a negative impact on his chances of exhibiting his infinite talent on it. The semi-final against Brighton is the sort of game in which reputations are made and while Mendy should be confirming his as one of Europe's most accomplished full-backs, the real shame is that Aleks Zinchenko, the … [Read more...] about Man City predicted line-up vs Brighton
