Pick your ultimate PL winning City XI

Taken from the bbc...

I go

Hart
Zabaleta Kompany Laporte Clichy
KDB Fernandinho Silva
Yaya
Aguero Tevez

It’s a weird 4-3-1-2 with absolutely no width! But some players in there!

Hart was a romantic move, as much as I love Ederson. It’s a real shame how Joes career has gone since, he was great for us.

Back 4 more or less picks itself, bar LB, best individual season was probably Delph in 17/18, but Clichy was solid if unexceptional.

No width further up but who would you drop out of that midfield? World class every one of them and it’s been a privilege to watch each of them over the past decade. Yaya Toure in 13/14 has to be the best individual season from central midfield in modern top flight football, he was unplayable. Fernandinho has probably been our most consistent performer since signing. KDBs passing is as satisfying to watch as scoring a goal. And David Silva will go down as probably the finest player in Citys history to wear the shirt, hoping that contract extension gets sorted so he gets a proper send off.

Up top Aguero is the obvious choice. Gone for a second striker to try and add a bit of balance... Sterling possibly more deserving of a place, but Tevez was great at City, one of the first big names to join, was instrumental getting us over the line in 11/12 after returning from his golfing holiday, plus the signing rattled Fergie to the core. What’s not to like? Could have gone for Dzeko too, or Negredo who was quality (for 6 months)

Plus it brings back that 4222 that City was unique for.

Out of interest would any other city players since the start of the PL get in the side?

Even Pearce at LB was way past his best

How far back do you want go?

The City teams of the 1970's had a lot of internationals.

BBC just did a breakdown of the results. Apparently Kolarov was the most popular pick at LB, but only got selected in 30% of teams, which indicates it must have been incredibly tight between him, Delph, and Clichy.
