Manchester City chance – Wilfried Bony

10 mins: The first real chance of the match falls to City and marksman Bony. Yaya Toure runs with the ball in midfield before passing to De Bruyne out wide. The Belgian plays a low cross towards the giant Ivorian who misses the ball but lands at the feet of Bony. City’s No 14 tries a first-time shot with his left foot but it is easily saved by Sevilla goalkeeper Sergio Rico.

City sticking with 4-4-2…

8 mins: From the outset it would seem that this would be the game that City finally line-up with a five-man midfield, yet that doesn’t seem to the be the case. Sterling is playing alongside Bony up front at present in a 4-4-2 formation with Jesus Navas and Kevin De Bruyne occupying the flanks.

Pellegrini has been criticised for playing this formation in Europe, but he is sticking with his guns.

Bright start by the visitors

5 mins: Sevilla’s reputation as a dangerous side is well known throughout Europe – with their Europa League triumph last season a recent example. Already they have caused a few openings in the City half and look dangerous on the counter-attack.
