That first goal was the killer, keep it at 0-0 and the longer it went on maybe already being so far behind Liverpool could have given them the jitters, instead we concede after 22 seconds and it was a Sunday league special goal.

Not too bad. I’d have taken that before the game. Pity we gave them the game and VAR fcuked us again.

Deja fucking vu
DeVAR vu

Davis did more in his cameo than Wesley all game. We tire on the second half because we have to do a lot more chasing and that's because w give the ball away too often.
The effort was there but they were as expected far too good, hope grealish was just knackered when he went off we can't afford to lose him for a few games.

Did better than I expected to be honest - no shame for a newly promoted team coming up against (probably) the most expensively assembled PL champions and losing 3-0. They were obviously by far the better team.  We did well first half but that early second half goal knocked the stuffing out of us and we were a bit at sixes and sevens at times for the rest of the game.  Another contentious VAR decision against us didn't help and we had no luck at the other end even for a consolation goal and a more respectable scoreline.  Certainly hasn't spoiled my weekend though

Not sure it was a good idea to drop Conor and AEG - why change a winning team that thrashed Norwich and beat Brighton?

Was probably always gonna be this result, just a shame to concede two soft goals at the beginning. First half was encouraging for next week.

Their second https://twitter.com/AstonVilla_Ar10/status/1188077993282932736

"Are you claiming that goal?"

"No, David said he touched it.."

Kevin de Bruyne has been awarded City's second but the Belgian is happy to share the goals round the team.

As good as Mings is, to get beaten so easily in the air for the first was really really poor.

Summed up perfectly in a nutshell. The longer it stays at 0-0 the more the home crowd get nervous.
Terrible from Mings for the first goal.

 From the Guardian's minute by minute report:

87 min Manchester City’s tactical fouls are starting to catch up with them. Fernandinho is sent off for a second yellow card, having been adjudged to have pulled back Davis. I’m not sure it was a foul, in truth, but City get away with so many sly fouls that they can’t really complain.

Pep has City well coached in fouling immediately they lose posession . It stops the opposition developing a move and is less likely to draw a sanction from the ref.

Clever coaching, or cheating?

You decide.

Dean is not great when it comes to changing things at times. Probably wouldn’t have mattered today, but would like him to be a bit more proactive.

They could before it gets it what is a dangerous position.

Clever coaching when it’s not a yellow card for a deliberate foul based on the position the foul is given.

Thought Gundogan tackle was a yellow and a half as well.

In my opinion Sterling, offside, did brush against the ball, probably just his shorts, mainly because he was escorting/shielding the ball into the net, at the same time blindsiding the keeper, never should be allowed, another clue is his arm movement, deliberate and well played but illegal.
