Manchester City: Fans make case for Gundogan over Rodri after Manchester United loss

Following their derby day loss to Manchester United at the Etihad last Saturday, and with their final Champions League group clash away to Dinamo Zagreb on the horizon, some supporters have made a case for midfielder Ilkay Gundogan to start over Rodri. 

The Spaniard, before their latest Premier League defeat, won a lot of favour with supporters due to his tenacious performance in the 4-1 Burnley win at Turf Moor – with many critics singing his praises thanks to a showing that seemingly looked unplayable at times.

Yes

No

However, after his somewhat lacklustre showing in the Manchester derby, some supporters have turned to Gundogan as the answer to their midfield dilemma.

The German has an impressive average pass success rate of 92.2% in the Champions League (via WhoScored), marking out clear evidence as to why he should potentially start away to Dinamo on Wednesday.

Here’s how supporters pleaded his case on Twitter.
