The five honest things we learned - Manchester City 1-3 Chelsea

The five honest things we learned from Manchester City 1-3 Chelsea

Scraps, own goals, Claudio Bravo. What a game.

Does anyone know the location of Sergio Aguero’s head?

There’s nothing quite like a 90 minute double red card and a mini-scrap to finish off a top-two game. The surprise candidate for headloss this week was Aguero, for a frustrated stomp on David Luiz which saw him sent off.

These two have history.

I’m probably better in net than Claudio Bravo

Okay, this might be a slight exaggeration. But I’ve been in net on holiday as my brother pelted shots at me and saved at least two. Bravo is becoming a liability, and Joe Hart must be laughing his balls off.

The goalkeeper was far from City’s only issue, but it’s hard to imagine Pep won’t be berating him in the dressing room as we speak.

Kevin De Bruyne had the miss of the season

There’s no doubting he is a brilliant player, with some impressive goals and performances already under his belt, particularly in the Manchester Derby earlier this season. However, this goal miss was Sunday League tackle.

The goal could have doubled City’s lead…

Manchester City’s defence is a mess

Yes, they have one of the most exciting managers in the world. Yes, they have a couple of world class players. But, Manchester City’s defence leave a lot to be desired. They have now kept just four clean sheets under Pep Guardiola.

John Stones, who was subbed off after 77 minutes for striker Kelechi Iheanacho, allows for too many mistakes and is becoming an easy scapegoat for disgruntled fans.

Gary Cahill’s own goal was a belter

The result rendered it pretty much irrelevant, but what a blinder of an own goal from the England international. If Manchester United could bury shots like that when they are having 89 shots at goal per game, they’d be much better off for it.

After bad mistakes against Swansea and Arsenal which led to goals, Chelsea fans lost their minds at Cahill as he belted the ball into the top corner of his own net.

What do you think?
