Sorry,I don't agree with you, but it is a forum for opinions anyway. I just can't see a team of professional players going out and having too much to drink a few days before playing against the team where a win would enhance their credentials as champions. If you said they knew City were a better team and they knew VAR and officials had given them a helping hand to be champions, then that is more believable. As it was, on the day they were well beaten over the 90 minutes.No, I'm not saying they're not bothered about the match as it would hurt your pride regardless of whether you've won the title or not. Nobody would want a good hiding off your nearest rivals. Of course it mattered to them but I definitely think them winning the title a few days before played a huge result in the way they defended this game as a whole. Normally they out run anyone, but they did not have the energy and drive to out run us.
Anyways that's just my opinion. I could be wrong. If we do it again this season in a game where we are head to head then I'll change my view on it.
