yeah, feels like massive fixture fatigue to me.Fair play to Pep. Takes off Foden, for Grealish, who promptly scores with City's first shot on target.
Current possession stats are 28:72.
Not that it's the be all and end all, but this doesn't feel like a 'big derby' match. It's been a a bit mute, not all that intense, or is it just me?
its remarkable.City have been in just wretched form and this match not much different. It’s all way way way too slow and everyone who is smart enough to defend in numbers and let the CBs pass between themselves has all kinds of joy on the counter.
KDB way out of form and he’s basically been the straw all season so it’s really slow and ponderous. We really miss Laporte and Dias/Stones but so many fitness issues and nobody to really break the lines from the back.
if nothing else the keeper changes positioningAbsolute howler from the referees and VAR. Not touching the ball doesn’t matter. He has to be defended, making him active in the play. Absolute bullshit,
