I'm a bit torn re selection. I'd would though prefer to see Nacho or Gray get a start over Perez. Ayoze drove me mad last game. So much came to nout when he got the ball. Can I also ask our attacking midfielder lads to release it earlier and quicker - please! We look limited when we let teams get bodies behind the ball.

One thing this current run should have taught anyone who didnt already know is that neither Maddison, Vards, Ricardo or Chilwell at his best is the MVP in our team its without a doubt Wilf.

 

Ndidi is the unsung heart of city's success, rarely picked as MOTM but - as we've witnessed irreplaceable within our squad.

 

Expect heavy interest from Real Arsenal, Utd and big Euro clubs in the summer--unfortunately.

I'm thinking ABW.... anyone but Wilf!

IMHO we have one top, top player at each level of the outfield ...  Ricardo in defense, Ndidi in mid and Vardy up front.

 

Lots of other fine players, but those are the other two I'd pay the 100K/week that Vards gets.

This is exactly the type of team and set up we have struggled against for a short while. Lets hope we can find another solution to breaking it. 

Was thinking the same thing. 3 across the front to press us high, Nobel and rice to cover balls into the middle. We could be in for another frustrating night of watching us struggle to play out from the back.

Time to go long for Vardy and Barnes to run onto then.

Yup. Plenty of space down the side of that back 3, you would imagine. Worked against Bournemouth early in the season too.

Ricardo is amazing, but our best defender is Jonny Evans.

Its not even close!

this is their predicted line up. Surely this team can be got at?!

Snodgrass and Noble are 32, and Zabaleta is 35, and all three played 3 days ago.  Hope we attack that side of the pitch relentlessly in the second-half.

Despite our rocky form, only Liverpool and Man City have scored more goals than us in the last 10 games . The problem is, only Aston Villa, Norwich, Burnley and Bournemouth have conceeded more, so i'd argue that our problems are at the back rather than going forward.

 

Goals Scored

Man City 26

Liverpool 24

Leicester 17

 

Goals Conceeded

Aston Villa 23

Burnley 20

Norwich 17

Bournemouth 17

Leicester 15

A pourous midfield at the Standard we have reached hasnt helped.....We are basically a young team,Building on new ideas and aiming a tad higher than we believed possible...Now lets see After a few obvious hiccups, if we can hit those hights in Performance again...!!

Old Zab uses the same monkey gland dealer as Vardy and plays like the Duracell bunny.

His lack of pace makes him a weakness that we should be looking to exploit between Barnes/Vardy.

True , so he's almost certain to get a yellow . Moyes will be nervous about going down to ten.

Antonio and possibly masuaku.

 

Bet you can't guess which side of the pitch is our weakest.

Whilst  I agree with the principle of keeping players up I think that you're wrong about Vardy. He's one of the best headers of a ball we have. He frequently wins balls in our box and without him there I think we'd be even weaker than we are. If Kasper could control his 6 yard box I'd agree with you but as it is I'd keep Vardy back and push Madderz or someone else who doesn't head the ball very well upfront. I even like to keep 2 or 3 up to force them to keep players back. Thinking on it Barnes would be great to be left up. he can't head a ball but he can certainly attack and torment a defence if 1v1 or 1v2.

Thats a  couple of responses saying the same.

 

All i keep thinking abiut is the good old breakaway goals in 15/16 but I'll try to keep an eye on it tonight.

 

I do however pride myself on remembering very little of the intricacies of the game as soon as the whistle goes.

I thought Antonio was out 

 

yarmalenko and Anderson defo out

 

their forum reckons that noble can’t play twice in four/five days - I imagine he can
