Manchester City aren't exactly fielding their strongest lineup against Reading, but in their favour it is against Reading, who don't seem to have much clue what they're doing these days. Karim Rekik will get the start for the hosts at the Etihad Stadium, and it'll be a monumental surprise if he sees anything less than a huge City win. Don't expect Pavel Pogrebnyak to have much fun today.
