    Team for Man City - Hughton's first 11


    0 Not allowed!
    Hughton put out this team for the first half against Dussledorf on Friday.
    It looks very much like his preferred best team from the players he had available.
    Ryan wasn't on the trip resting from the Confed Cup and Baldock had picked up a slight injury.
    Maenpaa; Bruno, Dunk, Duffy, Suttner; Knockaert, Stephens, Kayal, March; Gross; Murray.
    as a 4-4-1-1 . Gross playing in that advanced #10 role

    How many of that 11 do you expect to start on August 12th ?

    Would have been interesting to find out if Rene and Renato would have been a starter...

    Is that our best line up ?

    Assuming AK will recover from his injury (prays) , and that a few more signings are incoming then who are nailed on starters for our first ever Prem match ?

      I'd say Suttner, Dunk, Duffy, Stephens, Gross and Knockaert are all very likely to start assuming they're all fit.

      I think that's pretty close to our starting XI tbh. As you say, Ryan for Maenpaa and maybe a new midfielder for Kayal and a winger for March/ injured AK. Think Murray may start even if we get a new striker.

      As we currently stand:


      Maennpa, Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Bong, Knockaert, Sidwell, Stephens, Rosenoir, Gross, Murray

      Subs: Ryan, Suttner, March, Murphy, Kayal, Baldock, Hemed

      Think for the top teams we'll go 4-5-1, and also play Rosenoir in order to give Bong/Suttner protection.

      I guess Neto would have been a starter in place of Kayal ? Now we'll never know.

      If we are repeatedly exposed down that side and immediate solutions don't work, it will have to be dealt with much sooner. Every point and win is vital.

      January is a notoriously difficult window to get what you want without being held to ransome.

      People often say that including Paul Barber, managers etc.
      But truth is some of our best ever value for money recent signings have been in January.
      Stephens, Ulloa, Knockaert, Sidwell, Kayal.
