Manchester City will face off against Sheffield United at Wembley Stadium this Saturday evening as they hope to secure a good result in the semifinals of the FA Cup. Man City managed to earn a 1-1 draw away at Bayern Munich in midweek which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this game.
Pep Guardiola will once again set his side up in a 3-2-2-3 formation and could make a few changes to his first XI for this game. Both Aymeric Laporte and Kalvin Phillips could get a chance to impress from the start of this FA Cup clash versus the Blades.
3-2-2-3 Manchester City Predicted Lineup To Face Sheffield United
Ederson will play in goal for Man City after shipping in one goal in his last appearance. Guardiola could opt for a back three of Aymeric Laporte, Ruben Dias and Manuel Akanji as they try to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes.
John Stones will offer cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Ilkay Gundogan and Kalvin Phillips will anchor the midfield for the Mancunian giants as they look to dictate the tempo of the game at the centre of the park.
Bernardo Silva and Phil Foden will play just ahead of them as the free-flowing attacking midfielders as they look to engineer some clear-cut chances in the final third.
Kevin De Bruyne and Rodri will be rested on the bench as they wait for their opportunity to make an impact in the second half if required.
Julian Alvarez could get a chance to impress as the left-sided wide player while Riyad Mahrez hopes to weave his magic from the right.
Erling Haaland will once again spearhead Guardiola’s attack down the middle. The Norway international managed to score against Bayern recently which will give him more confidence ahead of this FA cup game at Wembley.
Jack Grealish will have to be content with a spot on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the latter stages if Man City are in need of a goal by then.
