Manchester City vs. Middlesbrough: Starting Lineups & TV Information

Manchester City return to Premier League action today after a pulsating and unforgettable win over Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday. The Blues must be wary of the post-European hangover that so many teams have suffered from when they host Middlesbrough at the Etihad Stadium today. The visitors have drawn three of their last four away games, including a gutsy 0-0 draw against Arsenal at the Emirates, so could present a challenge.

Kevin Friend is today’s referee and here are the teams that Pep Guardiola and Aitor Karanka have gone with today:

City XI: Bravo; Zabaleta, Kolarov, Stones, Clichy; Fernandinho, Gundogan; Navas, De Bruyne, Silva; Aguero.

Middlesbrough XI: Valdes; Barragan, Chambers, Gibson, Friend; Clayton, De Roon, Forshaw; Traore, Negredo, Downing.

Today’s match is NOT on TV in the UK but radio commentary is scheduled on BBC Radio Manchester. A full list of TV coverage from around the world can be found here.
