Have a go Moysie…City are beatable



David Moyes has surprised me over the last couple of months!

I don’t think myself or others have got it wrong in believing he has always essentially been a defensive coach but he is starting to show leopards can change their spots maybe.

Saturday is likely to tell us a lot more though and I’m quite edgy looking forward to a game where I really hope we can add to the nine goals we have already scored this season.

My big question is that with JWP, Lucas Paqueta and Mo Kudus available as one of the best looking possible midfields we have had in a long time, will he have a real go at the league leaders?

It’s easy to say there’s no reason why not but the last thing we need is a defeat even against that lot which is often seen as forgivable.

Ok, they are four games unbeaten but they weren’t to impressive against Sheffield United and in the likes of Zouma and Alvarez there’s possibilities of us holding Haaland at bay.

But with the midfield we have there is plenty of creative opportunism being created and they are beatable in my opinion so come on Moysie have a pop.

My team if all are fit: Areola, Coufal, Zouma, Aguerd, Emerson; Alvarez, JWP, Paqueta, Kudus, Bowen, Antonio
