      Good to see Firmino passed fit and time for Coutinho to spark back into firm. He usually does well against City.

      No idea what to make of City but it looks like they are either going three at the back or Fernandino is playing RB.

      Yeah, not sure on their formation too, but it's very very very attacking. Could be a high scoring game!

      City:
       13Willy Caballero
       24John Stones
       30Nicolás Otamendi
       42Yaya Touré
       22Gaël Clichy
       25Fernandinho
       21David Silva
       17Kevin De Bruyne
       19Leroy Sané
       7Raheem Sterling
       10Sergio Agüero

      So as said above, a very attacking side.  Should be an interesting match, expecting goals :)

      Not surprised to see Firmino back in, hoping for better from him than recently tho. Cou too. Need Can to have a solid game, and would expect our back line will be much busier than vs Burnley.   Jürgen still preferring Migs, what does that say about Karius. Guess Dejan not quite ready, Klavan has done OK recently, but this is different test.

      Looking forward to it. CMON BOYSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I think it's more like a 3-4-2-1. Can't see Guardiola taking away Fernandinho from midfield and leaving only Yaya Toure in there. We'd run over that midfield way too easily.

      Probaby something like:
                       Caballero
             Stones Otamendi Clichy
      Sterling Fernandinho Toure Sane
                    De Bruyne Silva
                         Aguero

      Sane and Sterling to play as 'wingbacks' to exploit the spaces that Milner and Clyne will inevitably leave behind. I actually hope we set up in a similar way as we did at home, it's the only way to keep them from continuously beating us on the counter attack. With the way Guardiola has set them up, it's too dangerous to press them high up the pitch. Toure and De Bruyne both have the ability to play diagonal balls straight into the spaces for Sane and Sterling. Can see Sane starting on the right eventually too, Milner won't be able to follow him, he's too quick. 

      I like our starting eleven, no surprises there and I'm ready for a good game of footy!

      COYR!

      Need much better displays from our full-backs than we've had in recent times. Also Can start the game as strong as he's been finishing them, can't afford those lapse that have cost momentum early in the games recently.

      Let's start on top, stay on top and crush these. Huge game and a draw would still be a decent result but a win would be absolutely massive for our top 4 chances.

      By the sounds of it we were struggling to field a fit first team striker. Ings long term, Sturridge injured, Origi missing some training and Firmino also missing training. I doubt any of them are as sharp as we'd usually expect, hopefully Bobby surprises us as he usually has a good game against City.

      Also Gini, away from home, bag a goal and get that monkey off your back.

      5-0, why not?! :D Come!!!! Smash 'em!

      Milner totally out thought and out played Sterling at ours. He hardly had a meaningful kick. Hoping for the same again.
      Stones over rated, let's attack him.

      Scratch that, I'm an idiot.

      Target that right side! Sterling, Fernandinho and Stones on one side is an accident waiting to happen!

      Going to be a very interesting game.

      Keeping a clean sheet would be pretty useful.
