Esteemed Kompany host Steven Mcinerney goes over 5 things we learned from Manchester City’s 3-nil win over Young Boys on Tuesday evening which featured an Erling Haaland brace and a quality Phil Foden goal. The win saw Pep Guardiola’s side book their place in the UEFA Champions League knockout stage for the eleventh consecutive season.
Could Jack Grealish play through the middle? It’s a question that came from the treble winner’s professional win. Grealish has returned to his best of late and put in another good showing in the win. The England international does have the attributes to possibly play in central midfield. His game and strengths do appear suited for a midfield role. It may be something to watch for as the season develops.
Phil Foden has been in his best form for some time of late. The City midfielder scored his side’s second goal of the game with a cracking finish just before halftime. Foden was a constant threat to the Young Boys defence with his ability on the ball and to find space was something the Swiss champions couldn’t handle. His performance continued his strong run of recent form as he made it three goals in his last three appearances.
The only negative on the night was an injury to John Stones. He is one of the most important cogs in the City machine and his loss will be felt by the European champions. How Pep Guardiola covers his absence will be something to watch for while Stones recovers from his injury.
