IT’S hard to be confident going into an away game with last season’s champions, but were something of a bogey team for Man City and they don’t seem to have hit form yet so far.
For me the big positive of this season has been our keeper and defence, so far they have been outstanding.
They have been put under pressure and stood up well to what most teams have thrown at us. If they can keep it up in the Man City game then were in with a shout.
I think our midfield will need to step up and have a massive game for us to get anything.
We saw some glimpses in the Wigan game that Sess and Mcclean were starting to get going and hopefully they can put in a performance.
I think Johnson will want to show what he can do against his former club and could be key to getting something from the game.
Fletcher has shown so far if you give him a chance he will score, here’s hoping he gets a few.
Prediction: Man City 1 Sunderland 1
