Silva is allowed to just jog, untracked, all the way into our six yard box. Balbuena and Obiang are the biggest culprits for me there.
Masuaku has to do more to stop the cross, that said, he was left two on one by Anderson who had been competing for the ball way over on the opposite side of the pitch when it all broke down. Total lack of discipline all round.
Second goal is very well worked by them to be fair. I'm sure Pellegrini will be looking at how Masuaku totally lost Sterling and I'd also question how Sane is able to get a cross over so easily (although that was great play by him).
Third goal Masuaku is caught napping again. Great ball in behind him but he is clueless as to where Stirling is. Diop and Balbuena also let Sane out of their sights far to easily. Again, great skill from Sane to finish it, but he has all the time and space in the world.
Stirling should have made it four when Cresswell totally lost him, a great save from Fabianski kept them out...
Then came our chances... three absolutely great chances yet their keeper didn't have to make a save...!
Great run from Antonio and lovely ball from Hernandez too, but Antonio has to score. Hit the target at the very least.
Great work and cross from Antonio, free header for Arnautovic pretty much on the penalty spot... again, has to hit the target.
Free header for Balbuena in the six yard box from a corner... again manages to miss the target...!
The 4th was offside and one of many that the lineo had missed all game. Arnautovic had walked off and we were a total mess. That said, Sane still had far too much time.
We had two decent chances in two minutes of each when 2-0 down
Firstly Antonio harrassed and bullied Laporte and then cut the ball back to Arnoutovic who should have done better, and then Arnie and Antonio had a one-two which led to a first time shot from Antonio straight at the keeper
Now, i am not for one minute saying that if we had scored it would have changed the outcome, but if you want to get anything against a team like Man City you need to take one of those chances
Plus we had plenty of corners first half which we failed to make anything of
