Manchester City VS Sunderland Preview
Sunderland has stayed closer to home, with more matches and fewer miles travelled, but have had to deal with a managerial change at short notice. They began with wins at Hartlepool and Rotherham, before heading to France to beat Stade Nyonnais and Dijon. After a draw with Montpellier, they travelled to Austria and also managed to play out a 1-1 draw with Dortmund. They’ll have more match practice, and ought to be less fatigued by travel, but it will be interesting to see how well they have adjusted to David Moyes’ managerial methods after his arrival less than a month ago.
Sane is likely to make his debut for Man City, he is considered one of Germany’s brightest young prospects. Sane is praised for his exceptional dribbling ability and can boast an impressive goalscoring record from his time in the Bundesliga. Guardiola has made every attempt to ensure that is the case by spending £150m in the transfer market, and the likes of Ilkay Gundogan, Nolito, Leroy Sane and John Stones will only improve City’s chances of glory in all four competitions.
Pep Guardiola has too many options in the Midfield as he would introduce a couple of Debutant’s to this Manchester City side also statistics speaks for themselves as Sunderland have not won in their last 7 encounters with Manchester City.
It’s a Definite City victory for me and I predict a 3-0 Manchester city win as the goal scorer will be Aguero, Ilkay Gundogan and Sane.
