MCI vs SHF Dream11 | Team News
Ederson was sent off against Wolves and serves a one-match-ban as Claudio Bravo keeps between the sticks in the upcoming fixture. Sergio Aguero was taken off for an extra defender as a result of the sending off but should once again be starting here. Phil Foden, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Ilkay Gudogan will be pushing for starts against Sheffield. David Silva’s inclusion remains in doubt, while Aymeric Laporte, Leroy Sane and John Stones are ruled out due to injuries.
Back up goalkeeper Simon Moore is the only injury concern for the Blades. Chris Wilder should persist with the same eleven which he’s going with in the last couple of games.
MCI (Expected Playing 11)- Bravo; Zinchenko, Fernandinho, Otamendi, Cancelo; Foden, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Sterling, Aguro, Mahrez
SHF (Expected Playing 11)- Henderson; Basham, Egan, O’Connell; Baldock, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, Stevens; McGoldrick, Mousset
Kevin De Bruyne has been the standout player from Manchester City’s end. The midfielder has six goals, 11 assists and a pass accuracy of 82% from 1474 minutes in the league this season.
John Fleck has been one of the key players in Sheffield United’s midfield. Fleck has four goals, an assist and a pass accuracy of 79.5% from 16 appearances this season.
Sergio Aguero will be eager to bag a few more goals after being on the sidelines for six weeks due to injury. The 31-year-old has nine goals, two assists and a pass accuracy of 80.8% from 828 minutes in the league this season.
Lys Mousset will be the danger man to lead the attack for Sheffield United. Mousset has five goals, three assists and a pass accuracy of 68.4% from 16 appearances this season.
