Poor ball out from Mina, then because he was so deep he was playing everyone onside and even then Pickford shouldnt be beaten near post.

He closed the angle, Jesus is just a class striker. Certainly not Pickford's fault.

Absolutely is. Keeping 101 is the front post. Pickford has his angles wrong, probably because of how the move developed so quickly.

He looked like he got his angles wrong would like to see if again

Take a centre half off at half time and get Lookman on 

Central midfielder for me. 4 at the back plus those 2 in central midfield will only make things worse.

Get more bodies in midfield and hopefully we can stop their attacks sooner and sustain ours for longer.

Piss poor half. Found wanting all over the park.dcl has had nothing to play off, Bernard non existent. Gilfi loses the ball then trots back. City are strolling and don’t think we have put a meaningful tackle on yet

We've not been terrible, apart from 1 or 2 brain farts one of which lead to the goal. If only wed finished one of the few chances wed created. Got to remember that this is man city, just glad that were not getting tonked.

How can the BBC have a headline of...

Jesus denied second goal by offside flag

? They were denied a second by him being offside, the linesman didn't use his flag to trip him up in front of an open goal did he? Or did I miss that bit?

We play out of defence too often, against most teams it's feasible, but against city we're the architects of our own downfall. Mina worries me when he's on the ball, and doesn't win enough challenges to get on it. Keep it tight and we've got a chance of getting an equaliser here.

Keane and Mina didnt know what to do in that situation and who to pick up. 

Please ditch this 5 at the back, it doeant work.

On top of that DCL is on completely different wavelengths to the rest of the side. Move Richie forward and stick Walcott / Lookman on.

To be fair to DCL Silva has started him but the players behind him have hardly given him anything the contest for. Nothing down the channels, nothing in the air. Nobody near him either.

Mina out of position again and couldnt even use his height to attempt a header. Last error in a piss poor chain of events. I'd say were chasing shadows, but more accurate to say were ambling after them.

Why go 5 at the back against city and gift them the midfield. Surely Davies should be getting the nod over Sigurdssen as well. Bernard over Walcott seems like favouritism rather than tactical given Walcott is much better at tracking back.

I agree with the first bit but Bernard is also a very good tracker.

Strange choice from Marco today.

Jesus christ the gloom and doom on here is real. Everyone calling for Mina's head and already labeling him a bust. He's had a nightmare out there for sure, but pump the brakes. He's played all of, what, 7 matches for us?

sadly he hasn't looked good in one of them.  i keep waiting for it to click and he keeps making distin like brain farts.  coming to realise he might be an expensive sylvain distin.

Completely agree, its madness!

He has been poor, but he has largely been very good for us so far in his short time here.

It's possible if Gana is injured maybe he didn't trust Davies enough in this game so was forced into 5 at the back
