As Manchester City prepare to face Sheffield United on Sunday, we have tried to call their predicted lineup.

Off the back of the treble-winners’ 1-0 victory against Newcastle United, we expect Juanma Lillo to just make one change to his side.

Manchester City predicted lineup vs Sheffield United

In goal, Ederson Moraes is expected to start in our Manchester City predicted lineup against Sheffield United, as per usual.

At right-back, Kyle Walker seems to have become indispensable this season, as he plays a key role in holding the width in possession, which makes his potential exclusion seem unlikely.

Manuel Akanji looked far better than against Sevilla in the John Stones role against Newcastle and as a result, we back him to keep his place in our Manchester City predicted lineup.

Alongside the Swiss international is likely to be Ruben Dias, who is one of the first names on the team sheet for City week in, week out.

At left-back, Josko Gvardiol, who looked the part against Newcastle could keep Nathan Ake out of the side once again.

Considering Rodri rarely ever gets a rest, we could see Juanma Lillo give him a breather by deploying Mateo Kovacic as his defensive midfielder against Sheffield United.

Bernardo Silva, branded as ‘underrated’ by Ilkay Gundogan (via ESPN) could return from illness to start alongside him in his side’s double pivot at Bramall Lane.

At right-wing, at least on paper, Phil Foden, who was dubbed as ‘unreal’ by Rio Ferdinand after his masterful showing against Newcastle in a central role seems destined to start once again.

Julian Alvarez, who bagged a venomous winner against the Magpies has started in both Premier League games and the same could be the case against Sheffield United.

While Erling Haaland and Jack Grealish are also expected to retain their places for Sunday’s clash.
