(Video) Steven Mcinerney previews Manchester City’s crucial match vs Luton Town

Esteemed Kompany host Steven Mcinerney previews today’s crucial match as Manchester City host Luton Town at the Etihad Stadium. Today’s game could have ramifications at both ends of the table given where the two teams sit on the Premier League table.

For Pep Guardiola’s side today’s game is a chance to move to the top of the table by the end of the day. With Liverpool and Arsenal both in action tomorrow today is the day Manchester City could put pressure on their title rivals. But no game is a formality and the champions must be at their best to pick up a precious three points today.

A major talking point heading into today’s game is will Rodri be rested? It has become apparent that City’s midfield general is in desperate need of a game off. That opportunity may come today, although given the importance of today’s clash with the Hatters it may not be possible. All eyes will be on Pep Guardiola’s team sheet to see if Rodri gets the rest he needs or not.

The final stages of the season are becoming a war of attrition for Manchester City. With the games comimg thick and fast the champions have had to alter their training schedule to cater for their heavy workload. It will be interesting to see if that is a factor in today’s game at the Etihad.
