Subs | Bravo, Walker, Jesus, Silva, Mendy, Mahrez, E Garcia

No KdB, no surprise really

Nice to see Foden start.

Lets hope Utd finish 5th this season and we get our ban overturned or delayed, sow e can laugh heartily at Utd's misfortune and UEFA's foiled plot to get them back in the CL.

Hopefully we're just being careful with KDB for the big game a week Wednesday. That team is good enough to win at the sty anyway.

Dreadful goalie error and no created chances. Rubbish first half.

When I see cancelo and Zinchenko as our full backs in an away derby I worry.

For a derby, that first half performance is not good enough Pep, not good enough at all.

Yep, crap first half. Must do much better second. Shouldn't have been a free kick for their goal but the defending and keeping were woeful too. Most concerning thing was that we didn't really look that threatening and had lost our way by the end of the half. Much work for Pep at half time.

it means so much to have a Captain on the pitch with leadership qualities to rally the players and we have not had that since Vinny departed
huge problem this season

Better second half against a eleven man defence but we have lost our cutting edge. Too dependent on KDB.

That felt like getting beat by Burnley or something like that.

Otamendi sadly is bobbins and left back has to be sorted out next season.

City lacked intensity today.Felt like they were not that arsed and have their eye on bigger things to come.

Ederson has been a top player for us but today he had a stinker. Hope he has got it out of his system. He needs to knuckle down and get back to it.

Can't completely blame Ederson, just frustration at an inapt back four and a resounding thrashing

Well, I suppose we can safely assume the club are now solely focused on the Champions League...

We almost looked disinterested.

Totally agree , we were kicking the ball around like a training session, not much passion from the players or manager

I dont care if they are focussed on winning the cups.When it comes to playing the scum they have to give it 101% everytime we play them.Yesterday was unacceptable.

Can someone please explain to me if Sergio was offside? It seemed rushed to me the enquiry that followed.I didnt see it properly as i was having a slash at the time it all happened.

Looked onside to me!!

It was brushed over to a large extent afterwards but it was one of those ridiculous affairs where they gave his shoulder very marginally offside when to all sane people he was level.

Just that. In embarrassment and fear the VAR decision was rushed and flushed down the toilet. Nothing I saw showed Sergio as being offside, the whole VAR thing has become a joke.

I had a feeling they did not want to give it cos rag goaly stopped playing when flag went up and did not want to hurt the rags feelings..

Yes, alledgedly but we all have to bear in mind that the image ww see with the drawn lines is NOT the VAR image used to adjudicate by the 4th offical and technical assistants on whether or not it was offside.

What we see is a Sky version of what happened.

I seriously doubt that any image could draw accurate enough lines to adjudicate on whether someone is offside by a fraction of a shoulder. Doing so is just total nonsense.

Anyway, it was all so quiet in the Sky studio after the decision, as if it had never happened, most conveniently.
