Might well go with Kane or Mahrez if they were in my team but with Lukaku a slight doubt it will probably be Salah.

Salah (c) looks to be the obvious, Lukaku (vc), if he plays.

Honestly contemplating taking a punt on Mahrez as captain.

If I do, I shall be hiding behind the sofa when Liverpool play Watford.

And then hiding behind the sofa again when Pep names his line up.

Im too old to be putting myself through such things so will probably end up with Salah.

Mahrez starting this week is safe enough imo. Can't see Pep starting with Grealish, Foden and Sterling.. then again, I'm not a genius.

KDB for me. A bit like the Mahrez choice, but better :mrgreen:

(Edit I do realise I have probably cursed KDB and blessed Mahrez now. Fingers crossed Man City bang in 5 AT HOME TO BURNLEY and they both haul!)

13 points from Salah isn't a great start now

Hmm in the end could have been a lot worse, KDB 11 points to Salah 13. Unlucky to Mahrez captainers!

Overall, pretty happy with that from KDB, especially as Lukaku and Ronaldo blanked (now where’s that thread on going for both of them gone :wink: )

Did Mahrez do anything at all ? :mrgreen:

Flashscore was trolling me as they gave the second goal as a Mahrez assist to start with only to remove it within a few minutes.

Even my wife now has more points than me :roll:

0.4 xG and 0.2 xA according to fbref.com, better than any other City player except Bernardo Silva. Owners/captainers were unlucky to get nothing out of the game. Cancelo was the other that was a touch unlucky not to get an attacking return (0.3/0.3) but of course he did have the CS points.
