European football can be just as much of a curse as it is a blessing

Having been knocked out of the Champions League on Wednesday in Monaco, the hangover was still clear for all to see at the Etihad on Sunday afternoon as the Citizens looked tired and worn out right from the get go.

Given that, it was perhaps even more surprising that it was Yaya Toure who seemed to struggle the most to keep up with play. The Ivory Coast midfielder has struggled and been left out due to fitness issues this season, and now it’s clear to see why.

Liverpool looked to capitalise, with their devastating counter-attacks posing real problems for City until Pep Guardiola intervened to add extra protection in midfield in the form of Fernando with neither manager prepared to risk their point.
