Can you name Man City’s first Premier League Xl under Pep Guardiola?


Pep Guardiola got his Manchester City career off to a winning start with a 2-1 victory over Sunderland in the Premier League in August 2016. 

City took the lead through a penalty inside the opening five minutes before Jermain Defoe grabbed a second-half equaliser for the Black Cats.

Former Manchester United defender Paddy McNair then marked his Sunderland debut by scoring an own-goal in the 87th minute to gift Guardiola’s side all three points.

The manager has since won three Premier League titles with City, but we’re asking you to name the Xl from that win over Sunderland.
