Manchester City vs Sunderland Pre Match Analysis

Manchester city will be hosting Sunderland at the Etihad Stadium in their first game of the 2016/2017 Premier League season. This should be a match to watch out for this weekend as both teams have made a lot of changes to their team during this summer.

The Sunderland team now paddled by David Moses has over seen Completion of some good signings including Papy Djilobodji from Chelsea, Paddy McNair and Donald Love from Manchester United. Planning to make a mark this Season, the Sunderland boss is faced with a tough opponent (Manchester city) and understand he needs to make a good selection, if he is to stand a chance against Manchester giant's. 
The Sunderland boss comes in with a 4-2-3-1 formation hoping to choke the midfield with made up support for his defence from the midfield. This will help the team more as it will help the hold the ball more and also a back up for the defenders but I feel only one stricker at the front might not be a good idea a Manchester city has  a good defense.

Keeper - Mannone; 
Defense - Rodwell, Koné, Kaboul, van Aanholt; 
Defensive midfield - O'Shea, Cattermole; 
Midfield - Watmore, Lens, Khazri; 
Stricker - Borini

The Manchester city team which have invested enough in this transfer period should also be aware that no team should be underrated if they are to finish top this season and their campaign should start even at the first match the season. To Pep Guardiola much is expected this season as he has never been known to fail. His side is much better than the opponent and a draw or loss will not be appreciated because much has been given into this transfer period therefore much is expected.

Manchester City will come with 3-4-3 formation also with the aim of holding the ball up in the midfield though not defensively as the David Moyes side, having a very rich attack consisting of three high rated attackers. I feel Sunderland may not have a chance against this team.

Keeper - Hart
Defense - Zabaleta, Stones, Kolarov
Midfield - Sterling, Fernandinho, Delph, Clichy
Forward - Silva, Agüero, Nolito
