Team News:

Carlos Tevez is still in Argentina with his wife after the extremely premature birth of his daughter. I wish Carlos the best and hope he can get back as soon as possible because we`re really missing him. I`ve heard that he may even struggle to get back for out game next weekend at Stamford Bridge. Another man in the news this week is Patrick Vieira after being handed a 3 match suspension for a petty little kick at Glenn Whelan on Tuesday night. Vieira will now miss the Liverpool game, the Stoke replay and the Chelsea game. In my opinion, this is almost a good thing as it will prompt Vieira to focus on his match fitness.

Martin Petrov faces one month on the sidelines after aggravating an old knee problem .Like Vieira, I don`t see Petrov being a big loss because he likes to talk about how he didn`t get his chance under Hughes but when he plays now he appears to put no effort in. Finally, I am unsure about the fitness of Vincent Kompany, there has been no news from anyone so I only suspect he is still injured. A shame because now we`re stuck with Toure (but he should have a better game against a less aerially dominating side – Liverpool)

Here is the team that I would like to see and the team that I also think Roberto could go with:

City Line-Up:


1) Given

2) Richards – 28) Toure (c) – 19) Lescott – 3) Bridge

8) Wright-Phillips – 34) de Jong – 18) Barry – 11) A Johnson

25) Adebayor – 39) Bellamy

And here is the team that I think Rafa will opt for:

Liverpool Line-Up:


25) Reina

23) Carragher – 37) Skrtel – 5) Agger – 22) Insua

20) Mascherano – 21) Lucas

17) Maxi – 8) Gerrard (c) – 11) Riera

18) Kuyt

What team would you go for?
