    Same here, Dinho's been fantastic but I thought he could have done more to stop Mane in the build up to their first goal, It was just too easy for Mane to shrug him off.

    Nice to see.

    In relation to the bit on DeBruyne however, most specifically this bit

    "Let there be no revisionism over this Manchester City midfield. As the start of the season dawned, it seemed likely that an ageing Yaya Toure would be a regular starter, an ageing Fernandinho would be his back-up"

    is so, so wrong. The reason Yaya was getting a game last season is because we had full backs not fit for purpose and so the verstaile Fernandinho had to fill in at full back.

    What City fan went into this season not expecting our midfield trio to be Fern, Silva and DeBruyne?

    The takeaway from that compilation is that, with better finishing, Dinho could be rivaling Leroy, Kev, David, and Raheem for assists this season.

    He is an absolutely brilliant player and, in my opinion, one of the best midfielders the Premier League has ever seen.

    Should have been in the team of the year. Silva and De Bruyne get all the attention because of their creativity but what this guy does for your team is underrated. Without him your midfield wouldn't be as solid.
