City have been playing with midfields made up of two AMs and a DM for the last two seasons and have racked up 200 points. It’s less about the quality of the opposition and more about a manager having the balls to do it, and I’m glad we finally did. Sacrificing a forward slot for Özil was killing our attack but playing without Özil was killing it too. That idiot Unai couldn’t realise that but at least Freddie has. I won’t be mad if he drops Özil for the city game, Ofc there’s a time for pragmatism.
