“Pep’s defensive players are not good enough, no matter how you look at it,” former player Gary Neville said. “Pep is great, one of the greatest of all time, but his defensive players are weak. It would not be an exaggeration to say that he is now facing the biggest task of his career – to win the championship again. He may not be able to achieve the title again, we know what threshold Liverpool has set.”
According to former player Darren Fletcher, who now serves as a commentator for the BBC, City’s problem does not start and end in defense. “More serious than the goals they conceded is the way they looked, from the front to the defensive part,” he said. “The whole team has to take responsibility, not just the defensive players. When things didn’t work out for Pep’s City in the past, it was easy to criticize the back, but even the link and attack players didn’t press enough or chase the ball. The fact that few produced opportunities was the worst part of the show. This one – we are not used to seeing them like that. “
Graham Sons told Sky that City are a shadow of the team we have seen in recent years. They were tired most of the game and Leicester frustrated them very much. Once you break their initial pressure, you have a real chance of hurting them. I think Liverpool will keep the title. It has grown big and City will need much more than Ruben Diaz to close the gap. I think Liverpool are stronger than they were a year ago. “
