Great result. Balls of granite Mahrez what a fab penalty. Sir Phillip of Foden imperious finish.
Nobody to fear here on in just a shame we couldn’t have another plastic club to join us PSG and Chelsea in the semi to boil even more piss :-)

obviously not .

No, sorry, not having that. Games get won and lost, on quality, on margins, on luck, on tactics, on poor decisions, despite all of the above, for all sorts of reasons. As Mancini would say, ees football. We lost a game of football. Not because we played ake mendy and torres as the only three non-regulars, but because we conceded 2 tight margin goals and failed to convert chances. Had enough to win it, on another day would have won it. And rested a few key players for the bif run-in in the process.

The second half of last night’s match provided you with the perfect illustration as to why Pep didn’t “pick his best team” as you wanted against Leeds. Did you see how we grew stronger and they faded?

maybe so but the premier league title is not won just yet
ok we have points in the banked and the squad rotation vs leeds was used but it did not pay off did it

i always think english clubs have the upper hand in fitness and stamina in europe because of the premier league
others league just don't have teams that from top to bottom play you and beat home home or away
its the one thing we have over the others fitness and stamina. add power and skill and its hard to beat
