My predicted team to play Oxford United tonight as we start our defence of the Carabao Cup at the Kassam Stadium:
🇽🇰49. Aro Muric ~ It will be nice to see him get minutes as our cup keeper.
🇧🇪4. Vincent Kompany ~ It will be a good match for him to gain his confidence back after some poor performances.
🏴5. John Stones ~If Mangala or Sandler we’re fit, I think they’d play. But we’ll rest our 2 best CB’s.
🇧🇷3. Danilo ~ If Pep thinks he’s ready after his injury, he’ll play.
🇺🇦35. Oleksandr Zinchenko ~ It’ll be nice for him to get his 1st minutes this season.
🇩🇪8. Ilkay Gundogan ~ Unreal against Cardiff, will look to carry his form on.
🇵🇹20. Bernardo Silva ~ Has better fitness than David and won’t want his rhythm interrupted
🏴47. Phil Foden ~ First Start?
🇩🇿26. Riyad Mahrez ~ A good opportunity to carry on his form and keep his confidence high
🇪🇸55. Brahim Diaz ~ First minute’s of the season, good opportunity for it.
🇧🇷33. Gabriel Jesus ~ Good opportunity to regain his confidence.
🇫🇷14. Aymeric Laporte
🇫🇷22. Benjamin Mendy ~ If fit, it’s a good opportunity for him to get back in the team after an injury.
🇫🇷81. Claudio Gomes ~ Rest Ferna, give him a chance.
🇪🇸21. David Silva
🇩🇪19. Leroy Sanè 🇦🇷10. Sergio Aguero
It’s a game where we are favourites so I’d like to see maybe Garcia, Touaizi or maybe Bolton ply but I think we’ll only see a couple youth players.
There was a time this wouldn’t of happened... hahaha. Me, Iran, Frank... and then Marlon Starling and Richard Burton. Thank you @ring10ny for an amazing Sunday with boxing brethren. And thank you for fighting the fight with us.
