These are the goalkeeper of Benfica Ederson, right back of Tottenham Kyle Walker, left guard of Monaco Benjamin Mendy and utility player of Real Madrid Danilo.

Simultaneously and practically under pressure Pablo Zabaleta (West Ham), Bacary Sagna (free agent), Aleksandar Kolarov (Roma), Gaël Clichy (Başakşehir), Fernando (Galatasaray). And on-loan goalkeeper John Hart who was recently irreplaceable had moved to West Ham.

4 playmakers and one forward

According to Josep Guardiola his dream team in case of stable and well-organized defense game, in the midfield and in the attack line should have utility players who can play at any position, beginning with holding midfielder and playmaker, winger and center forward if necessary.

The main holding midfielder will be Brazilian Fernando in the renewed line-up.

But four main positions between Fernando and the chief goalscorer of the Citizens Sergio Agüero will be taken by the quartet of playmakers – the Spaniard David Silva, the Portuguese Bernardo Silva, the Belgian Kevin De Bruyne, the Ivorian Yaya Touré.

Match prediction

Its first calendar match at the Etihad Stadium the Citizens will play on Monday, 21 of August against Everton, Liverpool. City came to the opening game of new season to a debutant of elite division Brighton.

Brighton – 9.00, draw – 5.00, Manchester City –1.35;
