Bellerin Papa Luiz Tierney
Ozil Torriera Ceballos
Pepe Laca Auba

If this team were fully fit for the whole season, where do you see them finishing? I do just hope that Xhaka is kept out of the team, ideally by Ceballos imo.

That's most people's big concern C B mate, once you start trying to find room for Xhaka your already putting yourself at a disadvantage 9/ 10.
No disrespect to Xhaka as a person but could Liverpool carry him for a season and get 96 points? City 97 points having to play Xhaka?
I'd play Guendouzi in place of Ozil in your side mate simply because of giving more to the defence because no back 4 can cope on thier own in today's game and the midfieild two or three are going to have to put in a shift defensively if we are going to improve this season.
Sunday I'd go
Maitland Niles Papa Chambers Monreal
Torreira Ceballos
Auba Lacca Pepe
Let Luis be 3rd CB when needed and DM at other times.
Keep it tight at the back Sunday and we will win but simply go for it big style and it's anyone's call.
Patience and discipline will beat pure enthusiasm and posivity most days over a season.

Interesting line up G62!
Maybe DM would be the position where Luiz will make the most difference to the team, as long as we don't have to play Mustafi at CB.
A team without both Mustafi and Xhaka is miles better then with them in there, and when Bellerin and Holding (and possibly Tierney) gets back in the team it actually looks quite promising. :)

Hi Stockholm mate I think if you can start a game with 11 players who probably won't let you down you've got a chance, unfortunately for Xhaka and Mustafi they both consistently let the team down so your so often having to make up for them rather than benefitting from their inclusion in the vast majority of games.
If we have to or Emery choses to include them we will always be up against it from the start of a game.

Bellerin - Luiz - Holding - Tierney
Guendouzi or Willock
Pepe - Ceballos - Aubameyang

It would be a crime against football to not play Ozil behind Aubameyang, Lacazette and Pepé.
