Glenn Hoddle belivee MC is vulnerable to loose

Former Chelsea manager Glenn Hoddle believes that Manchester City could be left vulnerable at the back if they decide to play with two strikers in the upcoming Champions League match against Barcelona. City will be going to the Camp Nou chasing the tie after losing the first leg 2-1.

The Premier league champions need to win by a convincing scoreline if they are to reach the quarter-final stages of the Champions League for the first-time in their history. After having recently suffered a 1-0 defeat against Burnley, confidence levels will not be high within the City camp.

Manual Pellegrini decided to opt for the dual partnership of Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero for the match against Burnley. Despite this, City did not create a lot of opportunities during the 90 minutes. If City opt for a similar formation against Barcelona, they could be found out at the back according to Hoddle. The size of the Camp Nou pitch means that City need to be compact and also aggressive in their pressing.

Wilfried Bony says Toure will help him

Manchester City’s latest multi-million pound acquisition Wilfried Bony says that the presence of his international Ivory Coast teammate – Yaya Touré – will help him become a better player at City. Bony came out as the best goal scorer in the Premier League for the 2014 calendar year.

After being linked with moves for the likes of Chelsea for several months, Bony made a £ 28 million switch to Manchester City just a few days after the transfer window opened in January. Bony has enjoyed being a regular first-team player at his previous clubs – Vitesse Arnhem and Swansea. However, he is largely expected to play second fiddle to Sergio Aguero at City.
