The team gives plenty of reason to be excited
One City fan I have just been talking to is immensely excited by that City team, describing it as the most attacking team he has ever seen!
I don’t know about that, but that front five of Aguero, Jesus, Bernardo, David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne is brimming with possibilities.
It is just a shame that, to shoe-horn Bernardo into the team, Danilo had to make way, because he had a good game in the new position of centre back against Liverpool and did not deserve to be dropped.
On form, Otamendi would be the man to make way, but Pep clearly wants recognised centre backs out there – and the Argentina international looks better in back four and will be aided by Mendy outside him.
