MCI Vs SHF Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Sheffield United look to capitalise on a regressing Manchester City today.
While Manchester City were always going to find it improbable to bridge the gap between themselves and Liverpool, the winning spree the club had gone on sparked some kind of a chance in their aspirations of staying alive in the title challenge. However, that quest was put to bed in their foregone encounter, a tie which perfectly exemplified why the club have seen so dreary this season.
Despite seeing themselves hold a 2-0 lead against Wolverhampton, City went onto be putdown 3-2, a showing which all but meant the end of their dreams of making it three Premier League titles in a row. It was a perplexing performance from the side, one in which their defensive display complete collapsed and fell apart to allow Wolverhampton to plunder them and walk away with the three points.
And when City take on Sheffield United today, the side know things are going to be far from easy for them. They are up against a side which has massively punched above its weight, showing more than a stomach of a fight to sit in an unprecedented 8th spot with their most recent 1-1 outing against Watford seeing them undefeated in their last four matches.

MCI vs SHF Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Dean Henderson has been an apt watchdog of his side’s goal, a player who has been majorly responsible for his side pulling off some gripping defensive showings to see us repose faith in the goal-keeper in this ambit of our Dream 11 side.
MCI vs SHF Dream11 Defenders(We have added Kyle Walker to our Dream11 team after the lineups were announced)
The 17 goals Sheffield United have let in across the 19 encounters they have stepped out in the middle till now have perfectly embodied the side’s fight and character when it comes to the defensive side of the game. And up against a pristine attacking unit, they’ll be looking to make things jittery for City and see their defensive reslliance come to the fore, something which sees us move in for the defenders from the visiting side.
What made both Enda Stevens and George Baldock stand tall amongst their counterparts was the attacking support these wingbacks provide to their attacking soirees, a discourse which sees us move in for both of them on the day. Elsewhere, from City we have decided to rope in the services of Nicholas Otamendi, a player who is capable of leaping up and coming up with a goal for his side.
MCI vs SHF Dream11 Midfielders(We have added B.Silva and Riyad Mahrez to our Dream11 team after the lineups were announced)
With an assist to his name the last time around, Kevin de Bruyne yet again epitomised why he’s such a focal point of his side’s attacking gameplan to see us indulge in the services of the midfielder from City. Rodrigo Hernandez will be partnering him up despite a languid display the last time around owing to his ability to come up with tackles and blocks and his relatively cheap price tag of 8 credits.
Elsewhere, Sheffield United are represented by a partnership as well, one which begins with John Lundstram. The player has been in electric touch this season, someone who has not only held fort in the CDM slot but has been more than willing to torch down the park and assist in his side’s attacking layups as well.
John Fleck and Norwood were considered for the second pick with Fleck coming in for us owing to his ability to articulately send down intricate passes and crosses.
MCI vs SHF Dream11 Strikers(We have dropped D McGoldrick to our Dream11 team after the lineups were announced)
With the two goals in the foregone encounter, Raheem Sterling took his tally up to 11 goals this season for Manchester City to make him an insane pick for us. He’s paired up with Sergio Aguero, someone who is back for the side to add to his 9 goals, a player capable of scoring goals from any situations.
Olivier McBurnie will be completing our docket with the Sheffield United striker being our final pick for the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Aguero will represent us as the captain while Sterling is our vice-captain.
