Man City vs Fluminense: Treble winners aim to win Fifa Club World Cup

Man City faces Fluminense in FIFA World Club Cup final, with key players returning but ineligible. Fluminense has no injury concerns.

Manchester City has the opportunity to bring home the Club World Cup trophy, which could provide the momentum needed to turn around their season in the league. In the final, they will face off against Fluminense, the champions of Europe and South America.

While Pep Guardiola has received a boost with the return of Kevin De Bruyne, Jeremy Doku, and Erling Haaland to training, they will not be eligible to play in the final due to tournament rules. This means that Josko Gvardiol and Ruben Dias will be hoping for recalls in defense, and midfielders Kovacic and Matheus Nunes will be looking to retain their places alongside Rodri.

In the previous semi-final, Man City opted to play without a striker, but Guardiola may choose to add more of a cutting edge in the final, potentially replacing Nunes with Julian Alvarez.

On the other hand, Fluminense has no injury concerns for the final, with 43-year-old goalkeeper Fabio set to become the oldest player to appear in the Club World Cup final. Felipe Melo, at the age of 40, is likely to partner Nino at center back, becoming the oldest outfield player to compete in the final.

Former Real Madrid defender Marcelo will also make history by becoming the second player to make five appearances in the final, with the eyes of many scouts on midfielder Andre, who has been linked with several Premier League clubs.

The outcome of this final could have a significant impact on the remainder of the season for both teams, and it will be a highly anticipated match with the potential for some standout performances and historical achievements.
