Walker And Sterling To Start | 4-3-3 Manchester City Predicted Lineup Vs Brighton And Hove

Manchester City will face off against Brighton and Hove Albion at Wembley Stadium on Saturday looking to make it to the final for the FA Cup with a win. The Citizens are currently in a rich vein of form and will be confident about seeing off the challenge of the Seagulls this weekend.

As long as the Mancunian outfit don’t get complacent, they should have enough in their locker to beat Chris Hughton’s men. Pep Guardiola is expected to opt for a 4-3-3 formation and might make a whole host of changes to his side for this upcoming encounter.

4-3-3 Manchester City Predicted Lineup To Face Brighton And Hove

Defence

Ederson will take his place in between the sticks for the Citizens on Saturday after keeping back to back clean sheets against Fulham and Cardiff City respectively. Guardiola might opt for the defensive pairing of John Stones and Aymeric Laporte once again after the duo put in a solid shift versus the Bluebirds in midweek.

The defensive veterans, Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi, will be part of the Man City bench and might come on during the clash if required.

Oleksandr Zinchenko is a significant doubt for this game so Danilo might start in his place at left-back. Kyle Walker will resume his right-back duties as he looks to use his pace in the opposition half to create a few chances for his teammates.

Midfield

The midfield three of Kevin De Bruyne, Fernandinho and David Silva might lineup at the centre of the park as they look to dictate play and create some opportunities for the front players. De Bruyne got his name on the scoresheet against Cardiff in midweek so he will head into this game with a lot of confidence.

Attack

The Man City frontline would be comprised of Gabriel Jesus spearheading the Citizens’ attack down the middle while Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva work hard to stretch the pitch on the flanks. All three of them will fancy their chances of making a significant contribution while up against a poor Brighton defence that shipped in three goals against Chelsea in midweek.

Leroy Sane will be available on the Man City bench and might come on during the game if needed. However, Sergio Aguero is a significant doubt and will be in a race against time to be fit for this FA Cup semi-final encounter at the Wembley Stadium.
