Manchester City will be hoping to field an improved XI for Monday’s match against Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium with two key players set to return to the starting lineup…
GK) Joe Hart
Despite the signing of Willy Caballero from Malaga this summer, Joe Hart looks to have remained number one in goal for Manchester City, and should start again here for the Premier League champions.
DR) Pablo Zabaleta
Despite missing the start of the season after his lengthy involvement with Argentina at this summer’s World Cup, Zabaleta will surely come back in to start ahead of the out-of-position Gael Clichy at right-back.
DL) Aleksandar Kolarov
Manuel Pellegrini’s preferred option at left-back, one would expect Kolarov to get the nod over Clichy on this side of defence as well.
