Fans have shared their thoughts on the team and have slammed the selection of De Jong and Mbappe ahead of City star Bernardo Silva and Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski respectively.

One fan wrote on Reddit: "Definitely Lewy of [sic] Mbappe. Thiago, Verratti, Bernardo Silva all good picks over de Jong."

Someone else posted: "Get a real CF and swap a [sic] some other midfielder for de Jong."

A third argued: "The lack of modric [sic] in this thread is surprising. For me, Modric over De Jong every day."

And user mikeest wrote: "Removing potential and all age-related talk, I just have no idea how anyone can consider Mbappe to be better than the likes of Hazard, Salah, Sterling, Neymar out wide or the likes of Griezmann, Kane, Aguero, Lewandowski centrally."
