Great to see Foden andAdarabioyo  get their chance in starting eleven.

Come on City.

Going OK so far. We move the ball well.

Poor from Danilo. Gave him far too much space.

Danilo half asleep again!

We pass the ball around quite well, but lacking vision around their box (no Silva or KdB of course).

We've learnt our defence is poor, as if we all didn't know that already.

Just need to sharpen up our passing and move the ball quicker.

Jesus should have done more with the chances he's had to make an impression.

Will be interesting to see how Pep re-jigs things for the second half. Not out of this yet.

I'm hoping he moves Foden central.

Need something extra in the middle. They waltz through us on the break far too easily. (Yaya lumbering around as usual)

Ah well. Win or lose Pep has certainly gone with youth here. Diaz on.

Adarabioyo visibly growing in confidence as the game goes on.

Impressed by him again but also by Foden and Diaz. The future looks rosy with young players of high quality.

It's been the senior players that have been disappointing tonight.

Players like Danilo, Gundugan and Bernardo should be busting a gut to impress Pep, Yaya's race is run and Mangala's never going to get better.

Like the look of Diaz. He’s got a lot of confidence.

Sad to say you would have hardly known Yaya was on the pitch tonight.
