City's Starting XI v Arsenal


City Line-Up:

(4-4-3)

1) Shay Given

5) Pablo Zabaleta
28) Kolo Toure (c)
33) Vincent Kompany
3) Wayne Bridge

34) Nigel de Jong
24) Patrick Vieira
18) Gareth Barry

11) Adam Johnson
32) Carlos Tevez
39) Craig Bellamy

Subs:

37) Gunnar Nielsen
2) Micah Richards
4) Nedum Onouha
7) Stephen Ireland
8) Shaun Wright-Phillips
14) Roque Santa Cruz
25) Emmanuel Adebayor

Interesting team selection here, I think we all could have guessed that Adebayor may have been on the bench and that Mancini's lieutenant Patrick Vieira may start against his old club but the dropping of Onouha really does bemuse me. He's been brilliant since he's come back into the team and deserves a run in the side but it's obvious how highly Mancini rates Zabaleta so that's who he's opted for instead. It's a very strong bench though so let's really go at Arsenal and take advantage of Spurs' slip-up.

Do you agree with Mancini's Team Selection?
