‘Not Good Enough’ ‘We Have Lost Our Touch Of Class’ ‘Scraped Through’ City Fans On Twitter Assess Narrow Win Against Chelsea

Manchester City showed tremendous character to come back from a goal down to win 2-1 against a competitive Chelsea side.

However, the first 20 minutes, in particular, were far from convincing from the home side and asked to assess the performance after the game on Twitter, fans were slightly concerned:

Raheem Sterling did have a goal ruled out for offside by VAR, and that would have put some extra gloss on the result, but it was a challenging match for the Citizens.

They required a deflection to get back on level terms and some individual magic from Riyad Mahrez to take the lead, but they were on top for large spells in the second half, and Guardiola would have been happy with some elements of the performance.

Considering the threat posed by Chelsea’s attack, the makeshift City defence stood up well to the challenge and it does show some promise heading into the games against Shakhtar, Newcastle and Burnley.
