The opening day of the season could have some surprises. It looks unlikely that Kompany, Barry or Richards will be fit. In addition, Balotelli and Silva haven't kicked a ball in pre-season so far. Can't see either of them starting. I imagine that Tevez and Aguero will start up front with YaYa behind them and Milner and de Jong holding and Nasri wide right. Perhaps we will play 3 CBs but if not then I presume Lescott and Kolo will be flanked by Clichy and Zaba with Hart in goal of course. This assumes no new additions or departures before opening day.
