Manchester City v FC Copenhagen:Uefa cup preview.

Didn't report after the Liverpool match for various reasons. But i was happy with the 2nd half performance at Anfield. I hope it was the mark of a side who want to improve rather than simply raising the game for a big opponent, something we saw last season.

An average draw at Copenhagen in the 1st leg saw city struggle in the final third and at the back. Poor finishing and poor marking generally presided over our away form this season. We are lucky to have the Away goal today, so hopefully we can put in a good performance tonight and win comfortably like we should be doing against a side that haven't played much football.

Team wise, Kompany is a major doubt with a damaged toe which leaves us light in the midfield. Hopefully that means we only play one DM at home which would be Zabaleta. Gelson is also still injured so it leaves us with little option. SWP could feature but has a slight ankle injury, but i fully expect him to start.

Shame we can't sell out at home for a Uefa cup run! Hoping for a good performance tonight.
