Manchester City's Squad Review: Who stays or goes in midfield
Manchester City scored the Premier League's highest goal tally in history this season. The Citizens' midfield played a major part. Pep Guardiola created a powerful force in the middle of the pitch, one which provided for the forwards, as well as screened the defence.
