RM – Jesus Navas
After moving to England from Sevilla last summer the Spanish winger had a solid first year in his new league and is likely to feature regularly once more in the coming season.
CM – Fernando
Fellow Brazilian Fernandinho will not be playing, so this could well be a chance for the new £12m signing from FC Porto to show what he can do in defensive midfield.
CM – Yaya Toure
After a few difficult weeks between club and player following the conclusion of the 2013/14 campaign, things seem to have been sorted now and Toure has pledged his future to City.
LM – Samir Nasri
Having been left out of Didier Deschamps’ France squad for the 2014 World Cup the attacking midfielder should be ready to take to a football pitch by now.
