Manchester City will face off against Borussia Mönchengladbach at the Puskas Arena on Wednesday night, hoping to continue their incredible winning run across all competitions. Pep Guardiola’s men managed to earn a hard-fought 1-0 win over Arsenal last weekend, so they will fancy their chances of securing a win versus the German outfit in midweek.
The Mancunian giants could set themselves up in a 4-3-3 formation once again, with Guardiola expected to make a few tweaks to his first-team for this game. Kyle Walker, Rodri and Gabriel Jesus are all in line to start this European encounter in Budapest.
4-3-3 Manchester City Predicted Lineup To Face Borussia Mönchengladbach
Ederson will feature in goal for Man City after securing an easy clean sheet versus the Gunners in his last outing. John Stones will resume his defensive partnership with Ruben Dias at the heart of Guardiola’s defence as they try to keep the Monchengladbach attackers at bay throughout the 90 minutes.
Kyle Walker could get the nod to function at right-back while Joao Cancelo fills in on the other flank as a makeshift left-back. Both of them will have to find a way to get to the byline and create some decent openings for their teammates in the final third.
Oleksandr Zinchenko and Aymeric Laporte will have to settle for a spot on the bench as they offer cover for the defensive positions.
Ilkay Gundogan will partner Rodri and Kevin De Bruyne at the centre of the park as they try to dominate the midfield battle and orchestrate some clear-cut goal-scoring chances in the opposition half. Gundogan was enjoying a rich vein of form in front of the opponent’s goal prior to his recent injury, so he will be eager to get back to that level when he laces up to face Monchengladbach on Wednesday night.
Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho will have to be content with a place on the bench but might come on to influence the game in the second half if required.
Raheem Sterling will operate as the left-sided wide player after scoring the only goal of the game versus Arsenal last weekend. Therefore, his confidence will be sky-high going into this European clash in midweek. Riyad Mahrez should retain his place on the right flank while Gabriel Jesus might get the responsibility to spearhead Guardiola’s attack down the middle.
Phil Foden and Ferran Torres will be available for selection on the Man City bench as they wait for their chance to shine as the impact substitutes if required.
