City Twitter: Should Aro Muric or Ederson start for Man City against Chelsea at Wembley?

Manchester City have a chance to lift their first silverware of the season on Sunday and in doing so retain the Carabao Cup when they face Chelsea at Wembley.

City recently demolished Maurizio Sarri’s men 6-0 at the Etihad Stadium in a swashbuckling display of attacking football, but Sunday is a new day and on neutral territory.

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is a doubt with a hamstring problem, meaning Willy Caballero, once a Wembley hero in this competition with City, could start.

But who will start between the sticks for City? 20-year-old Aro Muric has played every game in the Carabao Cup and has performed well, but has not come up against the likes of Gonzalo Higuain and Eden Hazard.

That begs the question – will Pep Guardiola stick with Muric or opt for the reliability of Brazilian shot-stopper Ederson?

We ran a poll on Twitter and 8,644 voted with 56% saying Pep should stick with his young Kosovan goalkeeper, and 44% wanting Ederson to start at Wembley.

Here are a selection of comments arguing for either choice.
