Out of the thirty Premier League games played by Manchester City, the playing eleven was never the same in two consecutive matches.Manchester City kick-started the 2020-21 premier league season with a game against Wolves on September 19, 2020. Manchester City had a remarkable 21-game win streak in all competitions this season which ended after a 2-0 derby loss to city rivals Manchester United.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has fielded a solid squad for this premier league campaign and has constantly shuffled his starting eleven in the premier league. In fact, he has never fielded the same starting eleven in two consecutive premier league matches this season. On March 14, 2021, Fantasy Premier League had also tweeted about it. This regular squad rotation policy has given the quality players on the City bench to see a decent amount of playing time. Sometimes, Guardiola has been forced to shuffle his lineup due to the injuries picked up by some of his key players like Kevin De Bruyne.

This season's highest capped premier league player for Manchester City is goalkeeper Ederson(29 appearances), followed by midfielder Rodri and Defender Ruben Diaz with 27 appearances. These are the only three players to have made more than 25 appearances for Manchester City this premier league campaign. As of March 25, City has played 30 games this season and comfortably sits at the top of the table with 71 points. With eight more rounds of fixture left in this season for the table toppers, they are comfortably ahead of the second-placed Manchester United(57 points), who have two games in hand.
