    Yaya had a perfect record with pens (although I cannot remember him taking many in ‘big games’). I really worry who can be trusted to score them as it can/has been crucial this set

    Like many others here I don’t feel 100% confidence when Sergio takes them especially as he has missed many and often mishits them. Not all our players play every game so there needs to be 2 or 3 that can step up. Gundogan seems best but doesn’t play every game. Sterling has improved finishing a lot but still susceptible to poor shooting.

    I think KdB has the best qualities to be 1st choice - good technique striking a ball and always seems very calm.

    The only others I would feel confident with are Sane (German) and Gabriel - however penalty-takers usually seem to be older players in most teams.

    I think Ederson would be good too as he strikes so fast and accurately but think Pep woujd consider the GK taking pens as disrespectful to opposition and of course, issues about opposition counterattacking and scoring

    De Bruyne, Sane or Gundogan. All are very clean strikers of the ball.

    On the face of it not great but I’d be interested to delve a little deeper, breakdown by competition, how many were when we were trailing or level, home or away etc
