The Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern were hoping for a dominant win against Wolves in the Carabao Cup. The Citizens have been on a roll this season, and having dispatched big teams like Chelsea and Liverpool already, the Championship outfit were not expected to pose much of a problem. That wasn’t the case, though, and in the end it took a penalty shoot-out for the Citizens to seal the victory.
Though the Premier League is largely considered to be within its own context, and so Man City’s disappointing display against Wolves may not, in theory, factor too much into Pep Guardiola’s thinking with regards to his team selection this weekend , the Citizens were pretty poor against the Championship outfit – and so the Spaniard surely took a few things away from the game.
If they had won by a big scoreline, a few players may well have found themselves in with a shout of starting this weekend, but now the very opposite has happened. Indeed, our landlord is expecting a few changes from the team that faced Wolves, with a few players likely to drop to the bench this weekend.
With that said, Guardiola simply must drop these 2 Man City players against West Brom – agreed?
