Manchester City: Many fans have given up on “shocking” Benjamin Mendy after Newcastle draw

Manchester City’s 2-2 draw at Newcastle was another example of Pep Guardiola’s men not looking anywhere near as efficient in attack or defence as they have over the past two seasons. Benjamin Mendy, 25, hasn’t been fit for most of that time, but at least he used to look impressive when he did play.

WhoScored noted he played just 10 games in the league last season but still managed to rack up five assists in that time, and they gave him a rating of 7.29/10 for his small but positive contribution. However, this term he’s been rated just 6.64/10 on the same website and they show he’s making an average of 0.2 key passes per game compared to his 1.2 average last term.

Fans have noticed he’s not looking anywhere near as good as he has done in previous spells when he’s returned from injury. Plenty of them are giving up on ever seeing him at his best consistently, and many took to Twitter after the game to say how they’ve lost confidence in the Frenchman.

Man City fans, what have you thought of Benjamin Mendy’s season so far?
