Just 3 second half goals puts us back in with a chance of Europe

Didn't look like a bad first half, especially against city. Great goal too.

KDB is a beast.

Bruno is ruining some of the younger players tonight. How can RAN and Chiquino start this when we’ve barely seen them against the weaker teams?

Come on, that's ridiculous. Chiquinho has been our best player! RAN has had better days, but hes worked hard and actually won some 50/50 balls which is more than Jonny has done.

Jonny not working in whatever position he's playing. City too good for us anyway. Raul, Neves, Moutinho, Neto and Dendonker (despite the goal) looking seriously off the pace. Chiquinho seems to be the only one able to do anything forceful. Not looking forward to the second half. I'd make changes now. Trincao on for Neto, Marcal on for Jonny, Cundle on for Dendonker.

We've no doubt contributed to our own downfall defensively, Jonny, RAN, Boly and Coady are all over the shop, however, City are just too good, both individually and from a coaching point of view for us, a few good attacks but hardly any shots. Not sure what we can do to change it.

Marcal is never the answer tbh. I do agree there's a few that look off it but how much of that is having to constantly chase City and then getting swarmed whenever they see the ball is debateable.

Neto did look like he was tiring so I expect he'll be off fairly soon unfortunately. Put Jonny back at RWB, move Chiq forward and put Toti into the back 3 - less players we have out of position the better.

Man City are one of the best teams in the world, so the score line reflects that.
Our passing is not good enough, so you are always going to struggle against teams as good as City.

Spirited performance against a team head and shoulders above us. C`mon Bruno, it`s Chiquo time! Not happy with the tippy tappy stuff in front of our goal though. Raul is having one of his better games. Jonny is a duck out of water in that position. Dendonker is still shit regardless of being on the scoresheet. Maybe Pep will take the main man off half time. Not.

Foden pushed Raul into Laporte. Chiquino fetched down by Zinchenko must be a yellow.

Our midfield has been embarrassed by KDB. Moutinho looking every minute of his 35 years.
