Predicted Manchester City XI to play Hull City - One change in the back four

Hull City KC South Stand

Match to be played on Saturday 27th September 2014 at 15:00. Venue: The KC Stadium, Hull.

Manchester City will be keen to beat Hull this weekend and close the gap on Chelsea who are hunting the team’s Premier League title.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side flexed their attacking muscles in mid-week to win the League Cup tie against Sheffield Wednesday in style but this is an altogether different challenge.

Pablo Zabaleta is available after he served his suspension during mid-week following his red card against the Blues last weekend.

City have knocks to several players, which kept them out of the game against Wednesday but they should come back into the squad as the boss looks to get the team heading in the right direction.

City have scored fewer goals in the league so far than Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and Everton, which is something the side can correct in this game.

Here’s the City team Pellegrini could go with.

Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Mangala, Clichy, Milner, Fernandinho, Toure, Silva, Dzeko, Aguero.
