I don't think we've been playing 4-4-2 anyway, just a conclusion that gets jumped to when Joselu and Gayle start together. Joselu was deeper than Gayle vs West Ham for sure

I think we're splitting hairs here.  4-4-2/4-4-1-1, not 4-2-3-1/4-5-1 etc.

Rafa with a typical cheeky pre-match interview. When asked about tactics, his response was to score one more goal, when asked how important it was to have a good start he replied with a smile normally delivered with a dad joke, that he prefers to finish well.

Unsure of starting 11... but unsure of any 11 we could put out against these. You never know, we might only lose by 2!!

So three minutes in and the tactic seems to be 11 men behind the ball. No pressing at all. Have Man City encountered a deeper defence than this all season?

Probably not but then, they have beaten all the other ones.

Great save Elliot, but we're not going to cope with those balls in behind for long if we let them attack like that.
