‘On the bench next week’, ‘He’s terrible’ – Manchester City fans on Twitter slate Carabao Cup hero despite victory

The Manchester City fans in the Transfer Tavern were delighted by the performance of their second-string side against Leicester City yesterday evening, but they were not completely satisfied by the display of Claudio Bravo.

Manchester City travelled to the Midlands last night looking to maintain their optimistic hopes of winning four trophies this season. It looked as if City were set to coast through to the semi-finals with a narrow 1 nil victory last night, until Bobby Madley awarded The Foxes an extremely dubious penalty in the 97th minute after Kyle Walker had tangled with Demarai Gray inside the penalty area. Jamie Vardy confidently stepped up to dispatch the resulting spot-kick and take the game to extra-time.

The scores remained level after the 30 minutes of additional time at The King Power Stadium, and for the second time this season, penalties were needed to determine City’s fate in the Carabao Cup.

Claudio Bravo was the penalty shoot-out hero against Wolves in the 4th round after he saved 2 spot-kicks to ensure City’s progression, and Bravo was once again City’s saviour last night as he denied Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez to send City into the penultimate round of the competition.

But despite Bravo’s heroics in City blue against Leicester, there were still plenty of supporters who were eager to criticise his overall performance on Twitter.

Although there is no doubting that his record in penalty shoot-outs is exemplary, his contribution in open play is still subject to plenty of criticism from the Manchester City fans.

Here’s what some of The Citizens had to say about Bravo’s performance…
