Ancelotti: Manchester City don’t have a clear identity

Thu 18 March 2021 | 15:32

The Toffees boss says the Citizens are unpredictable as they can play with different formations.

Manchester City

have enjoyed great form in their current campaign. The Citizens are currently leading the Premier League table with 71 points from their 30 matches. They also qualified for the Champions League quarter-finals last week as they eliminated

Monchengladbach

with a 4-0 result on aggregate. Ahead of his team’s FA Cup match against Manchester City on Saturday,

Carlo Ancelotti

has spoken about the Citizens and their current form.

“I would like to talk about Manchester City. Manchester City are a fantastic team but they have no clear identity.

“Sometimes they build up with three, sometimes with two, sometimes their right back goes to play as a holding midfielder.

“They have clear principles. That is the difference.

“Sometimes they don't play with a centre-forward, they play with a No 10 as a centre-forward, so the identity of Manchester City is not clear. If they had a clear identity you would be more able to manage their shape, but the fact is they change their shape.

“What doesn't change is their principles of keeping the ball, having possession and to show the quality they have. The principles never change.”

After their clash against Manchester City on Saturday, Everton will face

Crystal Palace

in their next Premier League match on April 5.
