MCI vs FUL Dream11 Defenders
Manchester City might be going into this clash with a massively shuffled around playing 11 but that hardly takes away from the fact that they are way the likelier unit out of the two to instill in place a cleansheet today. Fulham have wavered in from recently and with the side suffering a spate of injury issues, Manchester City will be quietly confident of ingraining in place a shut down today.
It sees us move in for the diminutive partnership of Eric Garcia and Angelino from the unit along with fullback Joao Cancelo as we venture in with an all Manchester City backline for the day.
MCI vs FUL Dream11 Mid-fielders
Roping in players from Manchester City was an extremely tricky proposition for us today given the way the side are set to toy around with their playing 11. However, David Silva looks to have hammered down his place after not being a part of his side’s team against Sheffield United.
In case he misses out, we’ll be getting in Bernardo Silva to replace in. With the seven goals and seven assists this season, Riyad Mahrez is being brought in as well by us from the unit. Phil Foden thrived in the FA Cup for his side the last time around to see him wrap up City’s trio of picks for the upcoming contest.
Elsewhere, it’s just the singular selection from Fulham for us meanwhile with Stefan Johansen being our pick for the day.
MCI vs FUL Dream11 Strikers
Raheem Sterling has massively waned in form in the Premier League but this Fulham side will be one where he’ll be fancying his chances of pulling off either atleast the one goal or assist for his team today. He has in his kitty the 11 goals and 1 assist this season to see us move in for him while Fulham elsewhere will find representation in the form of a duo.
With their leading goal scorer Mitrovic out inured for the tie, Ivan Cavaleiro will be asked to take the outright onus of coming up with a decisive display. And he’s capable of it as well with the player having the six goals and six assists to make him the first pick from the unit along with Bobby Reid.
