Bristol City – Man City Preview: Probable Lineups, Team News, and Form

You can check all the necessary information about both teams ahead of their duel here, including our predicted Bristol City vs Man City lineups:

Bristol City

Although they are pretty much stuck in the middle of the standings in Championship and are unlikely to move much up or down than their current position, Bristol City is actually on a great run at the moment. The team has been undefeated in the last nine games in the league, during which they recorded four wins and five draws.

When it comes to team news, Rob Atkinson is out for the season, along with miss Ayman Benarous. Also, Kal Naismith, Kane Wilson, and Tommy Conway are out with injuries right now, while Harry Cornick and Anis Mehmeti are cup-tied.

Bristol City Predicted Lineup:

O'Leary – Tanner, Vyner, Kalas, Pring – James, Williams – Sykes, Scott, Bell – Wells

Man City

With Man City being in the midst of the more important battles in Champions League and Premier League, they will likely give some rest to their key players against Bristol City, but they will still be gunning for a win and a place in the quarter-finals. The team has been in good form recently and they've closed the gap that Arsenal had in the title race, so they will have a chance to defend their title.

Meanwhile, John Stones is the only player on the team's injury list right now, but as we said, we expect Guardiola to mix things up for this game.

Man City Predicted Lineup:

Ortega – Lewis, Dias, Ake, Gomez – Silva, Phillips, Gundogan – Mahrez, Alvarez, Foden

Player to Watch: Riyad Mahrez

There is little doubt about the outcome of this game as Man City is the clear favourite to win. With that in mind, our player to watch comes from this team and it is Riyad Mahrez.

The Algerian winger has done very well in Premier League this season, despite not being a regular starter. In fact, he has five goals and four assists in nineteen appearances this season in the league, so Bristol City should be focused on stopping him in this game.
