Pep Guardiola is unquestionably one of the most unpredictable managers in the Premier League, which has made Manchester City an absolute nightmare for Fantasy Football fans this season.
It’s incredibly unlikely any City players, regardless of ability, will go the entire season without being dropped; Guardiola makes a point of picking the right players, the right system and the right tactics for the right opponent.
Leroy Sane – one of City’s best performers last season – was unlucky to find himself on the fringes of Guardiola’s plans on the opening weekend, having to settle for a spot on the bench.
But he still managed to change the game when entering the fray. Although the 6 foot German international didn’t grab a goal or an assist, City rather tellingly scored twice within ten minutes of him replacing Danilo at left wing-back.
Accordingly, we asked City fans earlier today whether Sane deserves to start against Everton this evening – likely in place of Danilo – and according to our poll, a whopping 85% think he does.
We’ll have to wait until later tonight to see if Guardiola agrees with them.
