Will provide cover for Toure when he gets the opportunity to move forward and look to break up play when possible.
CM: Yaya Toure
The Ivorian’s battle with Roma star Nainggolan will be the key battle to look out for, but will need to be at his best in order to influence the game the way he wants.
RM: James Milner
Milner will team up with Zabaleta on the right to put Cole on the back foot and provide extra cover when tracking back.
LM: David Silva
Silva has all the ingredients to get the better of Maicon and will be expected to cut inside a lot to help create chances.
