Here's my Predicted XI....🤔 who do you think should be in Pep Guardiola's first XI.
Benjamin Mendy is still not ready to go following complications with his knee after recovering from a long-term injury + Vincent Kompany is also still not fit and hasn’t featured since the win over Liverpool in early January.
Ederson to start especially with Newport apparently posing a physical threat.
After his impressive performance against Chelsea, we’re going for Oleksandr Zinchenko on the left, with Danilo returning at right-back.
At centre-back, Guardiola is likely to opt for experience with Nicolas Otamendi with John Stones partnering Nico for the third straight round of this competition.
Riyad Mahrez can’t get a league start right now, but these are the competitions where he can try and find the form. Leroy Sané has also been benched lately and that should lead to him being given a run-out on the left flank.
Up-front, after Sergio Aguero’s hatricks galore last week, Gabriel Jesus will return to the lineup.
