No defensive midfielder available - Mendy injured, Ndidi injured, Choudhury suspended.

We're fucked, basically. Can see Praet and/or Tielemans playing a bit deeper with Maddison further up. 

Can see us scoring first but still losing, like the reverse. We paid them too much respect in that game and with out defensive midfield predicament, can only see the same happening. We can hope that some of their players will have one eye on Real Madrid game in midweek but with a Pep team, it's a one-game focus and I can't see them losing much focus on Saturday. Can see Mahrez scoring 1 or 2 if he's in the mood. And De Bruyne having a field day if he fancies it. 

Schmeichel

Pereira - Soyuncu - Evans - Chilwell

Tielemans - Praet

Perez - Maddison - Barnes

 Vardy

The other alternative is go 3 at the back and have Pereira/Chilwell as wing-backs...

Schmeichel

Soyuncu - Bennett - Evans

Pereira --------------------------------------------- Chilwell

Tielemans
Praet - Maddison

Vardy - Barnes/Iheanahco

No Ndidi, no Choudhury, no Mendy.

It's a case of how many we lose by. Couldn't think of a worse team to face without any kind of holding mid available.

Just need to get at them! Anyone who does usually has some sort of success. Sit back with holding players and ya dead.

Yeah but some protection in front of the defence would help xD

Yeah it wouldn't go a miss I admit but dont be too despondent mate. Best way to beat City is to attack them. They are shite defensively but absolutely world class if given time and space to attack.

Bravo

Cancelo - Stones - Otamendi - Mendy or Zinc

Foden - Fernandinho - Gundogan

Mahrez - Jesus - Bernardo

BENCH:- Ederson - Laporte - Walker - Rodrigo - De Bruyne - Sane - Aguero

I cannot call our line-up at all. I wonder if he'll go with a back three.

I think nowadays you've got to have some sort of holding midfield. Tell me a side worth their salt that don't.

To have all of them out is very unlucky. Choudhury's the most infuriating of all as his first booking wasn't even a foul.

I foresee Leicester scoring on the counter. Man City haven't been that creative despite all the possession.

Ederson clearly doesnt have an eye on the ball at all. If he gets away without punishment in the form of either a penalty or a sending off then it’s laughable. 
 

Edit: no punishment, fuck off.

Some of the decision making by many of Leicester's players has been nothing but disastrous. Playing with their hearts rather than their brains if that makes sense.

Not far off the reality, that the whole team down 6 cans of red bull each before kick off.

This wasn't given as a penalty lol

ERZqRvIU0AUyM4o?format=jpg&name=900x900

Same VAR ref as the one for the Chelsea game. 

Absolutely bizarre how that's not given but their one was. Where's the consistency? 

And how we didn't get a penalty for the Kelechi incident as well is beyond me. Twice Ederson has got away with cleaning out our players and not given away a penalty.

Why is it okay keepers can get away with doing this but it you so much as brush or breathe on them they get a free kick?

I don't know about the other incident but when I saw the penalty against you the player appeared to have his hand out further and wasn't protecting his face. Where as that player has his hands infront of his face. Seems perdantic but I can understand why one was given and the other wasn't

I don't mind Praet's penalty being given. Not saying that shouldn't have been given. Just that there's no consistency.

But protection of face is not not handball. That's not an excuse. It's still handball. I know you love to defend referees and that's fair enough but today, David Coote, is utterly indefensible.

3 incidents he's absolutely ballsed up today.
