Or, as Pep Guardiola put it: "There are players who play positions, and there are players who play football. Foden plays football."

Foden aside, đô thị had this game wrapped up at 3-0 by half-time. Guardiola lavished praise on Brighton"s second-half performance, & it"s great that they kept going, but it"s obviously not a concern for City: you imagine things might have been different if the score had been closer.

Spurs lost 1-0 at West đắm say on Sunday & afterwards, Nuno Espirito Santo said they "controlled the game" và were the better team. Sure, if you get points for keeping the ball. But score is kept by goals & goals require shots, ideally from inside the box. & those are hard to come by when you get just nine touches in the box in the entire game.

West mê mẩn are a cohesive, tough nut khổng lồ crack và they"re continuing the good work from last season. And yes, given the preseason and early-season chaos at Spurs, your inclination is lớn give Nuno a pass. But crowing about your possession in a trò chơi when the opposition sits off you and looks khổng lồ counter doesn"t help.
