    Joe Hart has a hamstring or back injury according to Pellegrini.

    Why are you dropping Clasie? Been one of, if not our best, player in the last two games.

    Agreed with that, though I'd have JWP ahead of Juanmi.

    Yeah maybe, didn't think of playing JWP on the right. Mane should definitely go up front though.

    Kompany is definitely out, Hart is a major doubt but Silva looks likely to return. If Hart is out, their defence is going to be as shaky as the wobbliest jelly on the planet.

    Has he? I think he's shown flashes but struggled to impose himself.

    Following yet another cut eye Cedric will be rested again this weekend and Yoshida will come in at right back.

    Classy Clasie will play. Ron wants him 100% fit.

    I'd love to know on what basis you want to leave out Clasie?

    I want Yoshida to play right back, as it makes this place so much more lively than normal.

    I'd almost be tempted to go a sort of 4-4-2 for this one, with Mane in just behind Long. I don't see why it has to be one or the other centrally, let's put them both through the middle n really give City something to think about. Then again I think JWP could be helpful in this game but wouldn't have him over Davis/Tadic. Difficult one...
