(1)4-3-3 is the formation for Man City, starting with Ederson in goal. The centre-back positions should be filled by Otamendi and Stones, with the latter at serious risk of losing his place in the starting 11 to Laporte soon, as he has completed his £57million transfer to the Cityzens. Walker and Zinchenko should play as the full-backs once again. Fernandinho could play with Silva and De Bruyne in a line of three, should Silva be fit. Gundögan could fill in for Silva when neccesary. Next up are Sterling, Aguero and Bernardo Silva, with Jesus injured and Sane also, after taking a big hit against Cardiff City in the FA Cup recently. Mendy and Delph remain injured. Pep Guardiola must outwit the Burnley defence this week.
Walker – Laporte – Otamendi – Zinchenko
Silva – Fernandinho – De Bruyne
Bernardo – Aguero – Sterling
