    My general impression is that defenders get better defensively with age and experience but attacking ability is less easy to develop.

    He seemed like he wasn't sure whether to push up onto the fullback or drop onto Salah and ended up doing neither, that should be quite easy to fix though, his early crosses are going to get us so many goals though and his passing is quick and incisive too, a huge improvement.

    He was the closest City player to Pep throughout the first half. Pep had numerous opportunities to speak to him about his positioning if he felt it was a problem. If he wasn't playing where Pep wanted him to play he would have been told.

    Reminds of peak Micah Richards with better technical ability and crossing

    Have been excited by this guy since we played Monaco last season. He is going to be fantastic for us.

    I don't think there was anything wrong with his initial positioning just his decision making when the ball went across to the Liverpool right back. He was literally taking steps forward then back few times when Alexander-Arnold had it.
