***Match Thread | City v Rags***

I think the build-up has already started with the selection of the officials.

In reality we should batter these rendering any bias from either the match referee or VAR useless. They will do their best to see it isnt a level playing field, of course they will, but if we dont beat the rags in their current state comfortably I'd be rathr surprised

Mental they're allowed to get away with those choices. I'm sure Taylor was chosen for either last season or season before derby and Pep mentioned him pre-match, got a warning, but it was well worth it as the spotlight was then on Taylor all match.

Only concern is the long ball and break away with Gashford, James and Martial, we know James is fast, he had good game for Swansea against us last year. That said their midfield is shit, although they kicked the shit out of Grealish last week so our friend Taylor had better not fuck us over, again.

It was last seasons home derby he reffed.
Although we won easily he made sure he gave them their pen.

Given the Burnley lineup I think we can expect Gundogan and Mahrez to start.

Sterling Jesus Mahrez
Gundogan KDB
Rodri
Mendy Fernandinho Stones Walker
Ederson

PeP should swallow his fucking arrogant pride and play the same team, as yesterday, with the same tactics and we will win comfortably.

Unfortunately he wont swallow his pride and I cannot see us winning.

Surely Pep will sit Gundo out of the starting lineup for this? Rotate for Zagreb but start the same team as against Burnley. You know he wont though and I expect him to bring back Mendy

He would be pressing the self destruct button playing Gundo and that lump against the rags especially after the team he put out to batter Burnley.

I just cannot , for the life of me , understand the Gundo love...it just does not make any fucking sense.

The rags played well this season in the derbys vs scouse and chavs. Also last night. If anyone thinks it will be a walk in the park is really mistaken.

Sadly, I see a draw here. Our own fault as usual.

Hope I am mistaken and we crucify them.

We won’t lose if Baldie plays the same team that battered Burnley

I think Gundo will start and Fern on the back also.

My 2 cents: Eddie - Walker, Otter, Fern, Angelino - Rodri Gundo Dave KDB Sterling - Jesus.
