Stones, Otamendi, Zinchenko, Angelino and Mendy always make me nervous when we get countered. Mendy is maybe finding old form, but the rest of them are not good defenders. That’s our problem. Zinch and Angelino offer a few things going forward but their defending is horrible.If Stones and Otamendi are the answer, the question is. Which City players make you shit yourself when our opponents are attacking our defense.
They all have been amazing for this club but many failures we’ve had playing big games in UCL is due to poor defending. We’ll never reach a final playing with them, it’s very clear. Signings like Aké and Koulibaly takes us a lot closer to that evasive trophy.
