    We'll look even better when Zinchenko is back at left-back.

    City out of form, an injury ravaged team, a freezing evening in Lancashire, and a "traditional" stadium where Burnley would bombard City from the air all pointed to City "not fancying it" with their obvious frailties at the back. What we actually got was a City which was recognisably a City team giving its best performance for a good while. Burnley never got into the game and their agricultural thuggery had no effect at all: we controlled the game at all times through our dominance of the possession. Gone was the ponderous passing to players rooted to the spot by their 6" long studs who were supposed to move it on to statuesque front players as at St James' Park; all were replaced by slick one touch passers to players moving into space before being able to make a forward pass to David or KdB, who had got on the wrong side of their midfield. All City players played well - Angelino had his best game so far (whereas he's normally targeted as a weakness), Gabriel was back to his classy self, Rodri was superb and Otamendi rarely under pressure - and we were treated to a display which even the officials, and not even VAR could ruin - and four geat goals. Only sour note was giving away a goal in the last minute. Most enjoyable match for a while. In a very good mood today!

    Agreed about the performance. Luckily the officials didnt matter, as i thought they missed a clear red for Hendricks challenge on Silva. A miracle that David didnt get injured.

    Just been stood next to Aaron Lennon at the Christmas Market. Apparently one of our players started on him after the game. Not surprised with the amount of kicks they have us yesterday.

    I actually though dave was very ineffective last night, personally I feel Gundo would be better served in that position
