Dublin Here We Come Update
If City can negotiate a 4th clean sheet of the season and get past FC Timisoara on Thursday night, The Blues will be in Friday's Monaco hat for the Europa League Group Stage Draw...
The early team news for tomorrow night's clash with the Romanians is that Bridge, Kolarov, Boateng and Balotelli are all ruled out again through injury.
Yet Roberto Mancini, with Sunderland away on Sunday in mind, is almost certain to give many of the players who were on the bench for the annihilation of Liverpool a start:
'When you play three games in a week you need all the players to be ready to play. The next game against Timisoara will be hard and we will change some players.
