A win on Sunday and it’ll all be forgotten. Anything less now and we’ll all start worrying if lightning will strike twice.
We won't beat Arsenal with Wilf and Hamza as the two CMs, Tielemans pushed into a role where he's much less effective and with Amartey, Under and Albrighton instead of Castagne, Ricardo and Barnes. But if we correct those errors, we could still beat them without Maddison.we aint beating Arsenal with no Maddison
Hence why they are squad players, we have needed these squad players this season hence why we are third in the league. Our squad have stood and been counted for the majority of the season.Truth is we've still got several squad players to replace before we take another step up. Perez, Under, Nacho, Choudhury, Amartey to name five.
Man City are pretty much the only team able to have a second string of players happy to kick their heels on the bench - I’d imagine because of the wages being paid.Truth is we've still got several squad players to replace before we take another step up.

I agree but long contracts for "average" signings have hindered us hugely too. It's a very fine balance and doesn't just happen unfortunately. Luckily Top and Co know that....I think our 'second-string players' have improved since 2016, and we should all hope that it continues to do so. The training ground is part of that plan, as should a chunky % of any CL money, if we qualify. I also hope that the injury nightmare from this season will recede, which will improve things as Mistry says above.
I think that’s our strongest 11 at the minute. I’d go with this tomorrow.Kasper
Iheanacho/Perez if fit
I think Rodgers could change his tactics and play 2 strikers against Arsenal, Madders won’t play and Ünder didn’t do anything of note on Thursday to warrant a starting shirt...
Up the City...
