Bridge injured

Forgot to include this below: Wayne Bridge hobbled off with a thigh strain this evening. If he can't make it on Sunday we may see a City debut for Sylvinho, presuming he's fit. Failing that it's Stretford End coin-assault victim Javi Garrido. I think Zabaleta's a better left back than Garrido - certainly in this sort of game - but he's also struggling for fitness.

Or how about Lescott at left back and a first start of the season for Vincent Kompany?

Or even Gareth Barry at left back and Ireland and de Jong in midfield?

We are literally awash with options.

...this is why i think Hughes should of used his squad alot more, cup game would of been ideal to give sylvinho a run out. Rather than a debut in a premier league game.

bridge has improved this season, and looked decent last night! But i hope sylivinho gets a shot, becasue he is a good player, and it's good to get a game mentally!

Would expect Sylvinho to come in. To play Zabaleta or Barry would work fine but shuffling players around from other positions makes signing Sylvinho pointless. Straight swap.
