There are matches every season which you look at on paper and think “routine win”. Some Manchester City fans may see this afternoon’s game against Hull as one of them, but Marco Silva’s team are in good form and it wasn’t too long ago that they held Manchester United to a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford.
Today, the Tigers visit the Etihad to face a City side who have taken just three points from their last four league games, the most recent three admittedly tough. It’s time for Pep Guardiola’s men to step up and give a performance worthy of their reputation.
Jonathan Moss is today’s referee and here are the teams selected by Guardiola and Silva:
Manchester City XI: Bravo, Clichy, Stones, Navas, Kolarov, Touré, Delph, Sterling, Silva, Sané, Aguero
Hull XI: Jakupovic, Robertson, Dawson, Ranocchia, Elmohamady, Grosicki, N’Diaye, Clucas, Markovic, Evandro, Niasse
