Surprises in City’s eleven six days after the visit of Real Madrid


Manchester City host West Ham tonight in a pending Premier League match. A victory will allow the team of Pep Guardiola regain the lead that Arsenal regained on Tuesday in their victory in the London derby against Chelsea (2-1).

Despite the importance of the match, Guardiola was surprised by the line-up he will field in today’s clash at the Etihad, especially in goal, as he gives possession to Stephen Ortegawho made his Premier League debut after arriving at City last summer since so far he has only played in the FA Cup, League Cup and even a few Champions League matches.

“Ederson needs some rest. We have a lot of games and good mental rest. We have confidence in Stefan Ortega”, Guardiola assured before the game. For its part, in defense of the re-emergence of Nathan Ake, recovered from muscle injury which he suffered on April 8 and forced him to withdraw from Southampton-City in the Premier.

Pep awaits De Bruyne on Saturday

Not surprising, however, is the absence of Kevin DeBruyne, with Wednesday’s City-Arsenal unfinished and Sunday’s Fulham-City already missing due to muscular discomfort. “He’s better, hopefully he’ll be back on Saturday against Leeds”, Guardiola assured in the interview before the meeting.

About Sunday, in addition to Ortega for Ederson and Aké for Akanji, the other change is the input of Gundogan’s Bernardo Silva. The rest of the team is the same with Erling Haaland at the top. In other words, this is Guardiola’s eleven today against West Ham.
