Be it Manchester City or any other electric attacking contingent in the league, Martin Dubravka has stood tall, firm and resolute infront of everyone. The shot stopper has emerged as one of the most prestigious names in the league, a player who has regaled the side in wordclass showings of shot stopping on a consistent basis.
Manchester City might have gone onto leak the one goal to Southampton the last time around but that goal was more owing to Ederson’s futile and crass mistake rather than a collapse of the side’s defence. Barring that error, the team has been squeaky clean since the league has once again made an advent in the fraternity, a backline which has clearly addressed the elephant in the room.
And with Newcastle United confirming that they are stricken by injuries to the attacking slot head of the day’s clash, City will be quietly confident of keeping a cleansheet today. It sees us indulge in the services of their entire backline with all of Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy, Aymeric Laporte and Eric Garcia being enshrined in our docket.
Kevin de Bruyne was left out of City’s playing 11 the last time around and his absence was telling on the side’s attacking gameplan. Devoid of the services of their most influential name, the side failed to convene meaningful attacking sorties, leaving the side wanting of the midfielder.
He’s set to be back for this one to make the 11 goal man our first pick from the side along with Phil Foden who has been the club’s top scorer since the league has restarted. Newcastle United will elsewhere see us go in for their defensive picks here with the side relying heavily on defence today as they look to curb City from piling on the goals.
Given the escalated role Matt Richie holds with the player being accorded a new role in the CDM docket, he makes an advent into our Dream 11 side as the first player from the visiting team. He’s partnered up by the team’s top scorer with Jonjo Shelvey taking his tally to 6 goals after scoring the last time around against West Ham.
The 13 goals for Raheem Sterling see us snag the player for the day’s imminent encounter from the home side while Newcastle United on the other side will see us opt for the flair and calibre of Joelinton.
