Lucky, lucky Liverpool. That’s the story. At least if you’re a Manchester City fan or player, with the public relations wing of a human rights abusing petrostate still feeling aggrieved over Sunday’s 3-1 defeat at Anfield.
“I think we were much better overall,” said Rodri, with the midfielder currently off on international duty with Spain. “We created more chances than them, but they arrive to our goal three times and scored three goals.
“We are left with a bittersweet feeling because we wanted to win. They are very strong at the moment and they are having everything right. We have been brave but we have had to face several blows along the game.”
Blows like being correctly denied a penalty and having Liverpool execute on their game plan to frustrate and counter City early—and to then, when they had taken their lead, to sit on it and play conservatively.
Meanwhile, there are suggestions that City—who spent £100M last summer—could spend another £100M in January as they look to catch up to the Reds, whose biggest summer signing was Adrian on a free.
