As Manchester City cruised to a 2-0 victory against bitter rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford on derby day, many Sky Blues were left disappointed by the performance of Ilkay Gundogan.
Today’s Manchester derby marked the first clash between both sides to be played in front of a crowd since COVID-19 and it’s safe to say City supporters will be happy with what they’ve seen today.
Barring one Cristiano Ronaldo snap shot in the first half, Pep Guardiola’s side never really looked under much threat as City built upon their impressive record at Old Trafford in recent years.
Eric Bailly’s own goal gifted the Sky Blues an early lead before Bernardo Silva took advantage of Joao Cancelo’s cross just before half time to sneak a toe-poked effort in at the back post.
City had chances to extend their lead in what was a dominant afternoon against their rivals, but one man who didn’t seem to impress fans was Gundogan.
The Germany international, missing a big chance to get on the scoresheet himself, hit the woodwork and was among the lowest-rated City players according to SofaScore.
He also couldn’t really stamp his authority on the game, taking less touches than every City man today bar John Stones and Ederson (SofaScore).
As a result, many Citizens took to Twitter and voiced their criticism of last season’s top scorer in all competitions.
Find all of their verdicts down below.
Man City fans slam Gundogan…
“Gundogan been a bit disappointing”
“Alright get Gundo off i’ve seen enough”
“Gundo is playing against us rn”
“gundo needs to be taken off”
“Sell Gundo man”
“Gundo hasn’t been too good has he”
“So dissapointed in Gundo there, not had the best game tbh
Gotta slip Foden in or finish it himself”
