Brutal giveaway there, great goal by Hojbjerg.
I don't think they'll play this openly against Liverpool.
Beautiful goal by Hoj.
Wretched from Zinchenko, but Hojbjerg still had so much left to do
Pressure mounting on City......
They won’t play this open, but I think they’ll keep playing small ball out of the back under pressure.
He first had to win the ball, so you can't take anything away from Hojbjerg even with the terrible play from Zinchenko.
That's VERY lucky for Zinchenko I think. Not a stonewall penalty, but from the ref's angle I'm surprised it wasn't given.
Yea that’s a clear penalty
Oof that is unlucky
The greatest PL team ever sure looks mortal.
Pep is on his way to 1 title in 3 years. And everyone was ready to rename the league after him.
The ref in this game rubs me the wrong way. You can tell by his face he'sa a douchebag lol
And city respond with a totally lucky goal
Southampton should have been preparing for a penalty kick when City scored ...clear penalty
Southampton playing their B team today too.
Southampton robbed of a penalty there.
If Mark Hughes is still coaching Southampton, this is probably 3 or 4-0. So much credit has to be given to the way Hasenhuttl has changed this team so quickly.
And as I say that, 3-1.
Yeah City getting the big team reffing in this one for sure. A few calls already and the one on JWP was very clear.
Also, the difference between aguero and Jesus is night and day.
...and the floodgates open . Amazing how a dark grey call can dictate a swing of events . I like Southampton , always have and win or lose this game their future looks good
eh, he really dressed it up.
I don’t understand the Jesus hype at all.
He was stellar his first half-season in England, and so the hype train really got going. I think the hype is pretty much gone by now though, he still has loads and loads of talent but has stagnated. He took a LOT of shit in Brazil for his performance at the World Cup, which I think also probably hurt his confidence a decent amount - people were furious that he kept starting over Firmino, to the extent that apparently Gabriel Jesus trended in Brazil yesterday in response to Firmino's hat trick.
Yeah it's crazy sometimes the expectations fans put on players. The stuff they deal with can be really over the top and especially for a young player can have huge impact on their self confidence. Just look at what Lovren went through at Liverpool too.
Jesus never should have started over Firmino but it's not his fault that he did. He's a very talented young player and I'd take him at Liverpool tbh.
I remember reading that Brazil never really warmed up to Firmino because he was developed in Europe, where as they resonated more with Jesus because of his upbringing.
