It’s going to be said before each of our remaining games from now until the close of our most exciting season ever but this really is a ‘crucial’ game. If we win, we move into 4th spot’ 1 point ahead of Arry’s Spurs who play tonight against our last opponents; Fulham in an FA Cup replay at White Hart Line. Come on lads, shove a win down Gollum’s throat.

Team News:

Joleon Lescott managed to tear his hamstring tendon in a warm up at Craven Cottage on Sunday which could rule him out for the rest of the season which would a real blow considering his good form of late. Emmanuel Adebayor serves the last game of his initial four game suspension for a petty kick-out at Glenn Whelan in the FA Cup at The Britannia. Other than that, there is no new injury news apart from that Roque Santa Cruz came off against Fulham with suspected cramp.

Here is the team that I think Mancio will go with:

City Line-Up:


1) Given

2) Richards – 28) Toure (c) – 33) Kompany – 15) Garrido

11) A Johnson – 24) Vieira – 18) Barry – 39) Bellamy

14) Santa Cruz – 32) Tevez

Mancini has a lot of options at the moment like I said before the Fulham game: He could play Ireland behind Tevez , replace either Adam Johnson or Craig Bellamy with Shaun Wright-Phillips and bring in the hardman Nigel de Jong for Patrick Vieira.

And here is the team I expect Gollum Moyes to go with:

Everton Line-Up:


24) Howard

18) Neville – 6) Jagielka – 15) Distin – 3) Baines

7) Bilyaletdinov – 5) Heitinga – 10) Arteta – 20) Pienaar

17) Cahill

8) Saha

What team would you go with?
