Following Man City’s 1-1 draw at home to West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday night, a result which means more dropped points in the Premier League, many Sky Blues ripped into one man after they couldn’t squeeze a last-gasp winner past Slaven Bilic’s side – with Benjamin Mendy at the centre of criticism from these supporters.
Mendy, who started last night in place of usual makeshift left-back Joao Cancelo as the Portuguese was placed on the right, had been putting in some noteworthy performances recently – with the Frenchman scoring his first Premier League goal during a 5-0 romp at home to Burnley at the end of November.
Do Man City need to sign a striker in January?
Yes, it's a must
No, we have enough firepower
The defender also played against Fulham as manager Pep Guardiola seems to call upon him regularly – appearing above fellow full-back option Oleksandr Zinchenko in the pecking order.
However, with the absence of his usual overlaps and powerful left-footed balls into the box on Tuesday evening, Mendy cut a largely ineffective figure – with Guardiola swapping him for Kyle Walker late on.
Criticising his performance, here’s what Sky Blues had to say on social media – find all of their verdicts down below.
Man City fans hammer Mendy
Mendy has been a worse signing than Mangala.

Benjamin Mendy isn’t suppose to be a pro footballer. Man can’t do anything.

Pep needs to do Mendy like he did stones… Or sell him if he can’t help him

Benjamin Mendy is the worst defender we have… he’s completely useless and nobody seems keen on pointing it out. Needs to never play for city again

Sergio Aguero back to Independiente is inevitable. Gabriel Jesus to have a stint in Turkey before his career is over and whilst I’m at it, Benjamin Mendy is no better than Gael Clichy.
