TEAM NEWS
Manchester City playmaker David Silva is available after missing the previous two games with an ankle injury.

Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna are also fit but Samir Nasri is again ruled out with a muscle problem.

Stoke winger Xherdan Shaqiri will miss the game because of a hamstring injury suffered against Tottenham on Monday.

Shay Given is expected to continue in goal against his former club, while defender Erik Pieters completes a two-match suspension.

Busy thread for a City game as usual.

Lot of empty seats at the Emptyhad as usual.

4-0 win for City then, surprised Silkyman hasn't shown up seconds after the whistle as he usually does in this situation.

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.
Sigh. Emptyhad, right?

Good result though and gets the GD boosted while being able to give some of them a bit of a low impact game before Real on Tuesday. Good to see the lad Iheanacho grabbing a couple more. No idea why he's not been used more this season.

Annoying that they've left it too late to make any sort of tilt at the title. And more annoying that I had money on 5-0...

Keep pretending you aren't reading my posts.

It's definitely not absolutely mental.
