I agree that we showed them too much respect but Aguero was the game changer. Without him, we possibly win. The issue is that we don't have the players who could have made the difference. A more physical and pacy Willian. Pepe with a decent first touch. Someone other than Saka running from midfield and a functioning right side. Ederson also pulled off two great saves and the penalty wasn't even revised even though Man U got one after a match lol. There was too kuch against us from the start. We were cheap skating delaying the signing of Partey which means we threw two matches.
“Top top team”
“I was in that dressing room (City) for four years & I know how much it takes for a team to do what we’ve done tonight”
I think he’s showing them too much respect and that interview pretty much proves my point. It’s all good that he worked there and knows the quality of Pep, their team etc but we should go to these grounds and show no fear. The likes of Leicester, Lyon etc went to the Etihad and caused them all sorts of problems.
Arteta showed Liverpool too much respect aswell when we played them at Anfield. If we want results at these grounds then we need to cut this stuff out and not be too cautious.
