Man City v Pompey

Back to the nitty-gritty for two teams competing in Europe on thursday, both have wins to their name and similar Premiership standings.

Vital Quotes:

While Pompey won on Thursday, Man City did likewise in Nicosia, Jo was the man on target, breaking his duck for his new club.
City are now known as the richest kids on the block, their Far-Eastern millions may have come just to late to make a massive impact in the transfer market, but Robinho and Jo didn't come cheap, the former being snatched from under the noses of previous sugar daddy favourites Chelsea.

Abu Dahbi Team News:

Benjani won't get the chance to repeat last seasons goal scoring exploits against his old club, this one has come too soon for him.
Petrov is out with a hamstring injury thankfully, while Michael Johnson is a slight doubt.
Wright-Phillips can show Pompey what they missed out on first hand.

Player to watch: Wright-Phillips

Got to be really hasn't it?

Pompey Team News:

No new injury worries, its just a case of which formation again, Kaboul may return to help out Campbell and Distin after 2 games in a week, if so the wing-back formation looks favourite.
Glen Little will be itching for a first taste of life as a Pompey player, although Utaka may have done just enough to hold his place after Thursday.

Player to watch: Belhadj

Becoming a fans favourite very quickly, his dynamism is going down very well.

Belhadj will find himself up against SWP which will test his defensive qualities and maybe stop him getting forward so much. 1-1
