Fantasy Premier League Update- Manchester City will round off their 2019/20 season welcoming already-relegated side, Norwich at Etihad stadium. City brushed aside Watford 4-0 on Tuesday after their FA Cup disappointed prior to the league fixture. The elimination from the competition means the side from Manchester will have only Champions League to play for and they would like to move into their fixture against Real Madrid with this game to sharpen up the team. Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne will look to carry out they are in fine form in this match. They won’t have massive problems against the league’s worst defence.
Daniel Farke’s men have nothing to play for this season as they prepare for their campaign in the Championship next term. Their misery in the last game of the season is increased by the fact that striking pair of Emiliano Buendia and Josip Drimic will be out due to straight red cards shown to them against Burnley.
The match will take place on 26th July 2020 at the Etihad Stadium (8:30 PM IST).
Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson (GK), Kyle Walker, Eric Garcia, Aymeric Laporte, Benjamin Mendy, Kevin De Bruyne, Fernandinho, David Silva, Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez

Captain Picks For Your Fantasy Side For Manchester City vs Norwich:
Kevin De Bruyne
Five Players You Should Pick In Your Fantasy Side:
Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City):
The Belgian maestro had been pivotal for City, as usual, this season. Making himself as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League, the artistic right-footed player had notched up 3 goals and 3 assists since the restart for the second-placed side and made 31 goal contributions overall this season. Also, he will be in the mood to break the Premier League assist record in a single season having recorded 19 this season. It is certain that De Bruyne is an asset to have in any fantasy team.
Raheem Sterling (Manchester City):
Sterling is playing the best season of his career in terms of goal scoring, netting in 19 in 32 appearances. He would like to increase that number against Norwich after scoring a total of 8 goals since the restart. The versatile winger is capable of keeping defence at concern and it doesn’t get better for Norwich as a case.
Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City):
The striker has to fill in the boots of injured Sergio Aguero quite brilliantly and will like to finish his season on a high. The Brazilian had scored 3 and made 3 goals in the star striker’s absence making himself the man to rely upon. He’s surely in for your fantasy team in the last matchday.
Riyad Mahrez (Manchester City):
Probably his career is boosted by Leroy Sane departure to Bayern and if late performances are to come then the Algerian will come up with big things in future. He will insist himself to add more to his name with Norwich in the background having made 23 goal contributions overall this season.
Todd Cantwell (Norwich City):
Probably, the only sparkling aspect of the broken Norwich team. Cantwell will try to create a moment or two for his side in making City’s day a little trickier. So, he can be a trump card for your fantasy side this weekend.
