ANALYST

FIFA 22 has over a hundred football clubs worldwide, including their original rosters and players, but few can boast riches and powers like Manchester City.

The club has seen a meteoric rise over the last decade since the City Football Group took over in the late 2000s. Since then, the Citizens, who Sir Alex Ferguson described as "noisy neighbors," have moved up the food chain ahead of Manchester United.

Manchester City has won more English Premier League titles than any other club in the last decade. The only elusive trophy that is yet to come to them is the prestigious UEFA Champions League. However, last year's runners-up is a solid favorite to win it this year.

Ilkay Gundogan also fits well in the CM position and is a wonderful player item in FIFA 22. There are not one but two good defensive midfield options in the form of Rodri and Fernandinho.

Joao Cancelo's 86 rated player item can be employed both as an LB and RB.
