CITY XI | Ederson, Danilo, Stones, Laporte, Delph, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Sane, Bernardo, Sterling, Aguero

SUBS | Muric, Walker, Silva, Mahrez, Otamendi, Zinchenko, Foden

No surprise an out of form Walker benched today. He will have a battle now to regain his starting place.
 
Not sure why no Jesus.

C’mon City.

Bad goal to concede all round. Bad reffing, bad defending.

Very mixed half. Was cursing our missed chances but then they missed a few. We look bad defensively again.

Just not firing on all cylinders at the moment, but it will come good again so not all lost.

Delph sending off just ridiculous, well done ref you played a blinder.

We certainly do miss Fernandinho. Two very bad results on the bounce. 7 points behind now

Missing Fernandinho does not help but we are not playing anywhere near our best. Too many players coming back from injuries and nowhere near peak form, DeBruyne, Merlin.

Hardly the end of the world but certainly we have handed over the initiative to Liverpool, they are now in control pressure off somewhat and it is now their title to lose.

Prefer trifle over tripe. Unfortunately tripe is being served to us atm.

It will now be interesting to see how Pep and the Board react to these setbacks and our defensive flaws lost three in a short time and shipping goals at an alarming rate. Will the transfer fund be opened for January.

Liverpool are so much stronger in defence.

It was far from a good performance. We are hamstrung by injuries and players just coming back from injury. KDB was nowhere near his best. We miss Fernandinho but we coped well enough without him last season. We are facing some tremendous strikes as well. I wouldn't have grumbled had they scored towards the end of the first half but when they scored in the second, they'd barely been into our half for ages. We probably deserved a draw but that wouldn't have been good enough either.

We need to work on the obvious flaws such as Delph's defending today and Walker's last week. However, I don't think we're far from the team we were last season. A couple of weeks ago we had had a cracking start again.

Believe it's what's call character building.
No doubt some of us of a certain age are characterful from following beloved City for decades!!    :D
