WHEN & WHERE
The Premier League champions take the road to Molineaux Stadium on the 25th of August. The game kicks off at 5:00 PM IST.
City will be without their star player Kevin De Bruyne for the next three months. The Belgian midfielder sustained a Lateral Collateral Ligament Lesion and is expected to be back for City’s fixture against Liverpool.
Claudio Bravo suffered an ACL and will be out for the rest of the season. City are on the lookout to sign a back-up for Ederson. Keylor Navas is on City’s radar but will Guardiola spend a fortune for a back-up keeper? Danilo suffered a foot injury which he picked during the World Cup, but the manager did declare that he’s been recovering well.
A back injury will keep Ivan Cavaleiro out until September. Leander Dendonckner’s fitness is a major concern for Nuno Espirito Santo and Matt Doherty is expected to miss this fixture.
EXPECTED PLAYING 11
City are likely to field the same eleven that started the game against Huddersfield. A 3-5-2 formation worked to perfection for the blues and that’s the possible combination they’ll walk in with.
Goal Keeper: Ederson
Defenders: Vincent Kompany, John Stones, Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy, Aymeric Laporte
Midfielders: Bernardo Silva, David Silva, Fernandinho
Strikers: Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus
GoalKeeper: Rui Patricio
Defenders: Ryan Bennett, Conor Coady, Willy Boly
Midfielders: Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Adama Traore, Diogo Jota, Jonny
Strikers: Raul Jimenez, Leo Bonatini
