    Your best chance is if De Gea suddenly regains his form again.

    I do not exist.

    There are literally four games where City have failed to score this season: Tottenham in the Champions League first leg, Chelsea in the League Cup final, Liverpool & Chelsea in October & December respectively.

    Even if De Gea is unbelievable tonight, you'd still fancy City scoring at least once. So I think the United front line will need to rediscover a bit of form as well.

    City need the 3 points today. Arsenal will lose anyway so it won't matter for top 4.

    And since when do y'all experiment with 5 in the back?

    @MattW182

    Ole has done it a few times since being manager. I remember a few weeks back he tried Shaw as a LCB in a back 3. It could be any number of formations to be honest. Could even be Young RW to double up on Sterling.

    I do quite like the idea of Fred being the middle midfield player. He's good at winning possession back quickly.

    Not sure it's a game for Andreas mind. He's looked shocking in possession at times this season. If we give the ball away cheaply tonight we'll be punished .

    Few times in the past few months. When Shaw got sent off v West Ham we were playing a back 5.

    Sterling was a United fan as a kid. Shame he's had such poor taste in clubs since then.

    Gotcha! I really was struggling to remember but was thinking it was likely that Ole had tried it at least a couple of times since it would seem a bit odd to randomly try out the formation in this type of match up.

    Sorry in advance to my fellow United fans watching this. Also, maybe just don’t watch it, it’s still early enough to bail.

    Jesus Kompany has been tragic so far. Guardiola surely thinking of bringing him off.
     
  19. Nick

    @fangclubb Supporter

    We've comfortably been the better team so far.

    Stunning work by Ederson there.

    City are coming at Rashford so far in this game.

    music and baseball.

    So far all 25 mins has been City running into a brick wall.

    @fangclubb Supporter

    City make that foul multiple times a game and never get yellows.

    At least this ref is consistent.

    But how about Wolves being up by 2 against Arsenal!?

    @fangclubb Supporter

    Oooh almost. Fantastic ball and great clearance.

    Not surprising.
