    Simply don't rate him, seemed to lose his bottle after the bad injury, decent player but nowhere near our level

    A good substitute when you have a game won, but not as effective when you start him.

    Today he was just pants.

    I would start Foden before him every time. If Pep keeps playing this guy we will regret it when Foden leaves hacked off never getting s game

    I'm not sure how we can talk about him hiding when the going gets though when he was an absolute rock during one of the toughest, immaculate and longest run-ins I can remember!

    He has his place and was genuinely fantastic last season but he hasn't started the season well, he isn't deserving of a start right now.

    I think the problem of Gundogan playing advanced midfield is compounded when he's paired with David Silva. Between the two of them I don't think there is enough energy and drive. The pair of them played together in the Lyon home game we lost last season.

    Play one and not the other. If KDB needs a rest then we should trust Foden.

    Games that the two of them have started together as advanced midfielders in the past 2 seasons:
    • Liverpool 3-0 City
    • City 1-2 Lyon
    • Hoffenheim 1-2 City
    • Tottenham 1-0 City
    • City 2-3 United
    • Wolves 1-1 City
    • West Ham 0-4 City
    • Everton 0-2 City
    • United 0-2 City
    • Norwich 3-2 City
    • City 4-1 Burnley
    • Wigan 1-0 City
    Hoffenheim and the 2-0 win against United were both shaky until one of them was either subbed off or moved to a different position. Everton was 1-0 until the final minute when Jesus scored.

    Stats don’t reflect a player mate. With that you’d get a well paid job in the states doing american football analysis, love a stat do that lot.
