Considering we're losing to a deflected shot I'm not too worried. I do think as good as the 352 looked, based on the evidence of this game not the right choice. As a few have mentioned we were too passive. I think Tuchel got a couple things wrong here but, we can't hold it against him nobody tends to beat Pep as regularly as we have and perhaps playing too defensive has cost us. 

Look it's hard to beat Man City but it's impossible if you don't have a shot on target. The silver lining is Man U are down to Villa.

We were never brave today until we went a goal down, far too passive from the outset

I’m not so sure this is all about being too negative from the start. I think it’s more simply that they are better than we are and for the first time for a while they’ve proven that.

No. We started too slow and way too defensive. If we played with a bit more ambition, we could have got something. Even Southampton played with more ambition that we did in the first 60 minutes.

Dominated and outplayed by the better side.

Tuchel got it wrong today. On paper 3 in the middle sounds like it would work, but too many players were sloppy and off the pace, and we couldn't deal with the press, meaning there was no transition from defence to attack at all. 

No shots on target in the whole game sums up how dominated we were.

Better second half, our passive play in the first half cost us.

Can the BT commentary team w**k over City anymore, as well as practically celebrate every foul Oliver didn't give our way.
