If we win the game is a little unfair, we may win this game, but it is a little unfair to Manchester City.
We need to put in a lot of physical strength and energy to be equal to Manchester City, or slightly better. We must survive the beginning of the first half and the end of the second half.
In the beginning, we could not grab the ball from their feet, but they easily grab the ball from our feet. After we strengthened the overall aggressiveness of both sides, in addition to better defense, we can also attack, and even the offensive effect is good.
At the end of the game, our defense and offense were very good, but the continuous back and forth offense was more natural for them. From the beginning of the game, Manchester City occupied a clear advantage in all aspects. In the final 15 minutes of the game, when Manchester City was ready to dominate the game again, we made a different performance from the beginning of the first half.
Rodrigo will gradually show his advantages. Today, he got in as soon as he came out, maybe the rhythm of the game hindered his performance. When he can work for us with a good physical level, I think he will make a difference.
This is a fierce game. Squatting is to rest for a while before leaving the field.
This is an ups and downs start, what we are looking for is to face a variety of different types of teams playing more integrated.
Manchester City is a very strong team, both physically, mentally and technically.
There are many ways to analyze football, but there are two basic conditions: you can't pass the ball to the opponent, and the opponent can't steal the ball from your feet.
This game embodies these two points from start to finish, and there is no important tactical strategy.
If you notice that Guardiola has clearly changed the defense, when Fernandinho is on the court, this is when they started to strengthen their defense again in the game. This is a very smart substitution, which has a great impact on the game, which means that in many cases better defense can lead to better offense.
First of all, he is a skilled player. He is a competitive player, he has a physical quality I have never seen before. He has good performance in sprint and running distance. He was able to come to Leeds to thank Victor Horta. When I first saw him, I didn't expect him to have the progress he has now or the qualities he shows now.
Discussing transfer is difficult because it is a very unstable and anything can happen. I prefer to talk about the completed signings.
I don’t want to discuss this issue because it’s Southgate’s job, which is beyond my responsibilities.
In the course of the game, it is difficult for you to enjoy the game you are watching, but when you look back at the game, you should take the essence and discard the dross.
