Esteemed Kompany host Steven Mcinerney previews Manchester City’s Premier League clash with Luton Town in the video below. City will head to Kenilworth Road in desperate need of three points. With Liverpool now holding a seven-point advantage at the top of the table over Pep Guardiola’s side a win is a must for the treble winners.
The champions need a response against Luton Town. They have been below their best and last week’s loss against Aston Villa was City’s worst performance for some time. Pep Guardiola told the media that it may be what was needed to snap his side out of their funk. City will be keen to get back to winning ways today. Against Aston Villa, the champions struggled with Unai Emery’s side’s ability to get into their faces. They should expect a similar tactic to be employed by Rob Edwards team. How the treble winners handle the pressure will go a long way in deciding the game.
Rodri and Jack Grealish will both be available after missing the loss to Aston Villa due to suspension. The absence of the pair was felt midweek as the champions couldn’t get a foothold in the game. Rodri’s importance to the European champions is well known but Grealish was missed against his former club. His ability to maintain possession, track back and his creativity will be a welcome addition to Pep Guardiola’s side.
After a poor run of results, today’s game has become a massive one for Manchester City. Steven Mcinerney looks at all of the issues above, gives his predicted starting eleven and more in the video below. City fans will be hoping for a massive response from their side after four Premier League games without a win.
