Possible Teams: City v The Rags


Shaun Wright-Phillips is set to start his first game under Roberto Mancini after a good performance off the bench at Goodison. Stephen Ireland is fit again after a hamstring strain and is also expected to a place on the Berti.

Nedum Onouha, who was also on the Berti on Saturday could also be set for his start under Mancini after poor performances from both Micah Richards and Pablo Zabaleta. Roque Santa Cruz has been ruled out for another month after a recurrence of his calf strain.

There is no news on Carlos Tevez and Martin Petrov after they both pulled up against the Toffees so I assume those two are fit. Finally, Patrick Vieira will not make his debut after much speculation. The Frenchman is not yet ready for action and will be able to play in 7-10 days. David Ball, Wayne Bridge, Michael Johnson and Joleon Lescott are also all injured.

Possible Starting Team:

(4-2-3-1):

1) Given

5) Zabaleta - 2) Richards - 33) Kompany - 15) Garrido

34) de Jong - 18) Barry

8) SWP - 32) Tevez - 39) Bellamy

27) Benjani

Possible Starting XI: Rags:

(4-4-2):

29) Kuszczack

21) Rafael - 6) Brown - 23) Evans - 20) Fabio

26) Obertan - 16) Carrick - 8) Anderson - 17) Nani

7) Owen - 32) Diouf

The pace of SWP & Weiss will rip the rags apart and Weiss can use his pace when cutting in side to create space for himself for a shot or a cheeky little dink into the 6 yard box for the bullish tevez and bellamy to do their thing
