Manchester City’s defensive vulnerability continued as they only managed to secure a draw against Crystal Palace at the Etihad. Even the most optimistic of City fans would believe that the title race is over for now, but Guardiola will have to keep on going until the end of the season. They will travel to Bramall Lane next to take on Sheffield United.
The Blades have been flying high in the Premier League, and they are sitting on the seventh spot on the table. The Citizens won the previous encounter between the two teams 2-0. However, Guardiola would be aware that Chris Wilder’s men would be up for a battle and they wouldn’t give an inch to the Premier League holders.
Team News: Both Aymeric Laporte and Leroy Sane are expected to be back in the first week of February. Apart from them, City doesn’t have any injury issues, and everyone should be available for selection.
Manchester City Predicted Lineup Vs Sheffield United
Ederson is set to continue in goal for City. John Stones has come under a lot of fire for his performances recently, and he might make way for Nicolas Otamendi. To be fair, Otamendi hasn’t covered himself in glory this season, but a change could be in the offing for this encounter. Fernandinho could have done better for the own goal he scored against Palace as he didn’t manage to get his feet in order quickly.
However, he is likely to keep his place in the centre back role as he has emerged as the most reliable defender after the injury to Laporte. Kyle Walker might return to the lineup in the right-back role, and Cancelo could miss out. Benjamin Mendy is expected to continue at left-back as he is showing promising signs.
Rodri could return to the lineup after he only featured as a substitute against the Eagles. He should start in the defensive midfield role. Kevin De Bruyne is expected to keep his place in midfield. David Silva will likely complete the midfield three for City.
Gabriel Jesus made a positive impact after coming off the bench, and we believe that he should be handed a start for this encounter on the left flank. Riyad Mahrez has done well whenever he has got his chances, and he often brings the cutting edge in the final third. He should return to the lineup on the right-wing. Sergio Aguero is the man in form for City, and he is likely to lead the line for his side.
