Speaking about The Dangerous New Manchester Force, lets start with the last line of defence –
Ederson Moraes: He is certainly an upgrade to former Catalan goalkeeper Claudio Bravo. Ederson has shown what he is capable of in the pre-season despite not getting a chance to prove himself in the Premier League. But he will certainly be one of the golden gloves in the Champions League this season.
Speaking about defence, Manchester City have added Benjamin Mendy, Danilo and Kyle Walker to their defensive option. They can help block those crosses and provide that physicality in the defensive area. The return of Vincent Kompany is one of the positive for Guardiola this summer. He is the captain leading from the back and fighting till the end and is regarded as one of the best defenders around the globe.
Speaking about Central defence, John Stones have come a long way, he is the wall in the defence and the tower in set peaces. He is still young and growing but there is no doubt that one day he will be the man to watch from the back. City even have Otamendi who is beyond beatable at his best. Pep Guardiola is not done here with his defence and is looking to bring in one central defender before Thursday’s deadline. Jonny Evans may be on his way to Etihad Stadium and will certainly be one of the key to defense if he completes his move this summer.
Benjamin Mendy, Danilo and Kyle Walker, they are not only in addition in defence but also beasts going forward. their runs and crosses are one of the key ways for that City goal. It looks like City’s Boss will using them as wing-backs who can provide in the front and stay put on the back. All the three of them are one of the best wing-backs in the world and all them in a single team can bolster in defensive as well as in offensive ways.
