Following a devastating 3-1 loss to Liverpool at Anfield, Manchester City are looking to use the international break as a breather before their next huge game at home to Chelsea, but some supporters aren’t finished taking aim after the defeat.
After Jurgen Klopp’s side took an early two-goal advantage following some casual defending combined with clinical finishing, City had a mountain to climb. But before they could make their pressure count, Sadio Mane put the game beyond doubt with a goal soon after the start of the second half.
Who should be starting for Manchester City, Sergio Aguero or Gabriel Jesus?
Despite having the Lion’s share of possession, controlling the midfield and crafting plenty of half chances, the Sky Blues could only manage a consolation ten minutes from the final whistle – with Bernardo Silva instinctively driving the ball past Alisson at his near post.
As a result, some supporters have taken particular aim at Ilkay Gundogan following the loss – slamming him for carelessly losing possession for Liverpool’s first goal.
Fans have also been debating his merit in the ‘number 8 role’ – prompting some to suggest he is levels above in the ‘6’ position.
Here’s what they had to say:
Should never play again.

KDB runs for 90 minutes every game, Mendy and Gundogan are just stocky and not as fit as anyone else

Gundogan isnt having his best game by his standards as he doesn’t work well with rodri.
However with angelinho I disagree
