UEFA Big Match Build Up: Bluesy's Options
City held a press conference in Schalke this afternoon ahead of training with the increasingly influential Vinny Kompany sat alongside Mark Hughes
Sparky in full flow
As we know, Bluesy and his management team are now considering their options with a squad now depleted by four noteable absentees in Gelson, Elano, Zabaleta and our talisman Robinho.
The big talking point in Dortmund Airport arrivals and the Gelsenkirchen bars this evening will be how will the gaffer approach the loss of Robinho and the right back berth vacated by hard man Zabaleta?
Jo is fit again and in contention for a start up front and there will be a good number of Blues calling for the inclusion of Onuoha in the City defence.
City (from): Hart, Richards, Dunne, Jo, Garrido, Wright-Phillips, Ireland, Kompany, Vassell, Hamann, Mwaruwari, Sturridge, Schmeichel, Onuoha, Evans, Ben-Haim.
Will the gaffer aim to keep a clean sheet and adopt a safety first policy or go for it targeting an away win that would all but secure qualification from the group stages?
