Credit where credits due Manchester City are a very well balanced team but we have been shocking beyond belief. As soon as you saw the line up you just knew there was no penetration whatsoever and so it has proved. It looks like a training run for City and for us it is difficult to find any redeeming feature. Rudiger and Azi have done well under relentless pressure but both have had to cover for Christensen being out of position and Drinkwater has had a go something you cannot say about Hazard who knew he was likely to be on his own but looks as if he would rather be somewhere else. Very disappointing.

Even a novice fan like me can see that our team is not set up to play a false nine system. Hazard was isolated the whole match. Also as if the whole team is lethargic and don't believe in Conte.
To be fair I didn't expect this ultra defensive setup. Conte is asking the board to sack him. No acknowledgement between Hazard and Conte after substitution. Worrying times. Both could go in the summer. Conte perhaps earlier.

they are a brilliant side at the moment. can't take it away from them. and sad to say but it makes the prem exciting to have more than 2 teams fighting for the league. hence why the prem is the best league in the world.

Agree city deserve credit but as much as hey deserve credit we deserve the be crucified. that game was a must win for us and we didn’t try to. We never wanted to go at them. Conte was petrified of them, it’s not as if we have been keeping clean sheets yet we went there not to concede to many and not to score by the look of it. Most boring and negative game I’ve seen this year, 5 points off 4th, remember when we were chasing 2nd . I don’t wanna here how we suffere without the ball feom borig conte. we suffered with it because we had no outlet, all praising city for winning a game against a team who didn’t try to win.

Totally agree Matt. Why, in a game like that do we start with Morata and Giroud on the bench? Both would have helped Hazard and occupied their defence. Another matter; what has got into Courtois with his dreadful playing the ball out of defence?

And how exactly will Tbo play out. A long Ball to Hazard. Oh I am sorry he is not a target man and Giroud/ Morata is warming the bench. pathetic.

Tibo has to find a safer way to get the ball out of his area, sloppy passes putting defenders under pressure will cost us at some point and a long ball into the opposition area is better than what he is doing.

A long Ball to opposition area serves no one as there's no one to hold the ball and allow others to move forward. This is where Drogba and Costa was important.
Alas, Conte's who is greater than Costa. Now even Tbo can understand that long Ball to Hazard in the false nine position is not the way out. Ball will be won by opposition and Hazard will cut a sorry figure haplessly ambling around. This is precisely what happened last night. When you have Giroud and Morata, playing hazard as false nine idiotic and pathetic. Conte is asking for the sack knowingly and eyeing that fat Severance check. Shameless.
