Manchester City will entertain FK Crvena Zvezda at the Etihad Stadium this Tuesday night as they look to earn a good result in the UEFA Champions League. The Mancunian club managed to earn an impressive 3-1 win away at West Ham United recently which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this game.
Pep Guardiola will set his side up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to keep changes to a minimum for this game. Hence, Erling Haaland will once again lead the line for Man City on his own up top.
4-2-3-1 Manchester City Predicted Lineup To Face FK Crvena Zvezda
Ederson will feature in between the sticks for the home team after shipping in one goal in his last outing. Manuel Akanji will get another chance to impress alongside Ruben Dias at the heart of Man City’s backline as they try to keep things solid on the defensive end of the field during the 90 minutes.
Kyle Walker will retain his spot as the right-back while Josko Gvardiol looks to catch the eye on the other side as the left-back. Both of them would get the license to get forward and express themselves in the opposition half.
Nathan Ake will be available for selection on the bench as he offers cover for the defensive positions.
Bernardo Silva and Rodri will anchor the midfield for Man City as they try to establish their superiority over the opposition at the centre of the park.
The gifted trio of Jeremy Doku, Julian Alvarez and Phil Foden will operate just ahead of them as part of Guardiola’s attack. Doku managed to find the back of the net versus West Ham which will give him a lot of confidence going into this clash.
Kalvin Phillips and Sergio Gomez will be named on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the second half if required.
Erling Haaland will spearhead Man City’s attack up top. The Norway international would be eager to make a difference for the Mancunian club in this midweek Champions League clash.
Both Jack Grealish and Kevin de Bruyne will be sidelined for this game due to injuries.
