Man City fans react to bizarre Pep Guardiola team selection



Some Manchester City fans have taken to Twitter to react to the starting XI fielded by Pep Guardiola against Wycombe Wanderers this afternoon.

Pep has the chance to rest some of his top players ahead of the trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea, the side they beat in the Champions League final back May.

It’s an opportunity that the Spaniard has taken advantage of, but in a way that only Pep Guardiola could, having fielded an entire back four and holding midfielder from the youth setup.

Needless to say, it’s raised a few eyebrows. To play some of the best attacking talent on the planet alongside a bunch of teenagers is an experiment of a kind we don’t see often.

If anyone were to do it, you’d put your money on it being Pep – and he hasn’t disappointed.

Some fans are puzzled and surprised by the selection while others are thrilled. They’ve all taken to Twitter to share their views on the XI that’ll be taking on Wycombe Wanders tonight.
