Man City’s changed XI: Predicted line-ups vs Basel

Man City vs Basel

4-nil up from the first leg in Switzerland, Man City are a shoo-in for the Champions League quarterfinals.

Basel are arguably the worst team left in the competition.

Since losing to the Sky Blues, Basel have gone on to lose their next two domestic matches as well.

Moreover, Basel have failed to score a goal in their last three matches.

Predicted line-ups: Man City set for major changes

Pep Guardiola is likely to significantly shake up his XI for the Basel game.

With the comfort of the 4-goal cushion, some fringe players could get a run out on Wednesday night.

The Times have predicted how Man City will line up, with Yaya Toure set for a recall in the centre of the City midfield.

City are also set to give Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus his first start since he suffered a bad injury at Crystal Palace earlier in the season.

At left-back, Fabian Delph is in line for a recall instead of Oleksandr Zinchenko.

At right-back Danilo is poised for another appearance.

Interestingly, despite Raheem Sterling returning to training after a hamstring injury, the England international is not expected to start against Basel. He’s scored 20 goals this season.

Stoke vs Man City

City return to Premier League action on Monday night when they take on Stoke City at the Bet365 Stadium.

It’s a top versus bottom clash, as the Potters are second bottom of the league.

Stoke have only lost once since Paul Lambert has been appointed, but Stoke have drawn five of those matches.
