Had it not been for Nick Pope, Burnley could up ended up with a potentially embarrassing scoreline when they took on Chelsea.
Five of City’s last six wins in the Premier League have seen the club emerge with cleansheets to their name. Despite dishing out a shuffled backline the last time around, the club still managed to shut down its opponents.
And with Burnley not massively revered as an attacking setup, this tie can easily end up with another cleansheet in City’s favour. It sees us indulge in the services of Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias, Kyle Walker and John Stones.
James Tarkowski on the other hand will be ingrained in our unit from Burnley.
Riyadh Mahrez was not utilised the last time around but the five goal and two assist man should be back for the day’s contest.
The team’s leading scorer with the seven strikes to his name, Ilkay Gundogan forms the one-two of selections from the club. Burnley will on the other hand see the vibrant duo of Ashley Westwood and Dwight McNeil be inducted in our setup with both having conjured up the two assists apiece.
Our team for the day is wrapped up by the selection of Raheem Sterling from City with him having crafted six goals and four assists for the side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His goal and assist the last time around make Cancelo our captain while Dias is the vice-captain.
Pope, Cancelo, Dias, Stones, Walker, Ilkay, Riyadh, Ashley, Dwight, Raheem
