Missed the goal and the end, but a late Aguero effort. Obviously they gave everything, only KDB can hold his head up from us. Aguero did his bit at the end.

Hard on Bristol they played some great stuff and never hoofed it.

Didn’t go to plan for us tonight. We could have done with KDB coming off after 60 mins. Still, a win is a win.

Not impressed with silva, Gundogan, ya ya or mangala tonight. Bar KDB, the rest weren’t much cop either.

Slight twinge of sadness for Bristol City. They probably deserved to go into the second leg with it all square.

Our back line was a nightmare. A triangle of horror between Mangala, Stones, and Bravo!

Poor team putting in a poor performance. We need a better team and performance at Bristol.

So much deadwood Mangala, Yaya.

So many players unable to take their chances always wanting another touch and then just one more.

About the only thing B Silva got right all night was the perfect delivery for Aguero's goal.

Lee Johnson is a classy act! Just said in the post-match that "we didn't want to make them angry, but we scored the goal..."

A few individual highlights papered over the cracks tonight.

Our 1st XI plus 3 or 4 others are top notch but after that we're treading water. Mangala, Bravo, Zinchencko, Yaya, Danilo aren't good enough. Gundogan and Bernardo need to step up and Sane needs a kick up the arse.

I'm not so sure he could even find Oldham - he has enough trouble finding his teammates.

Mango seems to play better in the big games. Sane had an absolute stinker and didn't distinguish himself with effort either. Sterling always seems to contribute these days even when he's not great. Twas a great ball back to KDB for the first goal and not something you'd have seem from him before this season. A great finish by KDB too, of course. Fantastic to get a winner at the end. We'll play better but it's rare we don't find a way to win.

Harsh on Zinchenko, he's a tidy footballer being asked to do a job in an unfamiliar position and he hasn't let us down so far.

It may be harsh but it's true. He won't be here next season.

I'd like to see Zinchenko given a go in his proper position in midfield. As Brendan said, he's doing a decent job for us in a new position for him and he looks a footballer.
