Manchester City's Squad Review: Who stays or goes in midfield

Monday 4th June 2018

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.

The third in a four-part series, we take a look at City's midfield. How did the current crop perform over the past ten months? Could new arrivals be on the way this summer?
