Hazard nearly did the impossible. Living off scraps. Pep's method of fouling is a masterclass.

We haven't had the ball!

Every other touch of his has been decent. I didn't see that he had many options there other than get the pass right (which he didn't).

I think you’re conflating ‘had a good half’ with ‘nobody in a blue shirt has been anything better than average but the few times Barkley has passed the ball sideways and backwards has been generally fine, until he gave one away’.

If we had a midfield we could make a game of this.

Going to have to make better use of set pieces. One of City’s biggest weaknesses. 

 

Not with Willian taking them. Can’t beat the first man on a regular basis.

This has been a good first half. We have been reasonably disciplined in defence. It's gonna be difficult to pass through Man City with our midfield. Swap Barkley with Higuain and get Hazard to come deeper to link up play. That will help.

City 7 fouls to our 4, only one yellow card though. For us. 

Plus a blatant red card not given to Zinchenko. 

We’re doing well to still be in this tbh.

Can’t see the game but seems we haven’t even had an effort towards goal never mind having one on target. 

So the option seems to be - play with men committed forward and leak goals as a result. Or shut up shop and don’t create anything. 

Or am I being overly negative?

Would be a huge error. The only reason that we have coped is because the midfield is packed and Man City dont have Alonso’s complete lack of pace to exploit.

City are being forced wide and that is throwing them off.

Got to keep this up until the 75th minute or so IMO.

Or passes short when Luiz is screaming for the ball into the box with 30 seconds left! Willian is just so 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 frustrating!!!
