Manchester City fans amazed by display from Brighton star against them
Manchester City were beaten 3-2 against Brighton on Tuesday night in the Premier League – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter were amazed by the performance of opposition player Yves Bissouma.
Pep Guardiola’s side have already wrapped up the league title, but will be left bitterly disappointed after a midweek loss at the Amex Stadium.
Ilkay Gundogan’s second minute goal put the visitors ahead, before Joao Cancelo was sent off in just the 10th minute.
Champions League finalists Man City continued to impress with 10 men and doubled their advantage with a sensational effort from Phil Foden shortly after half time.
However, eventually Brighton’s numerical advantage came into effect.
Leandro Trossard, Adam Webster and Dan Burn were all on the scoresheet to help Brighton earn a massive result in front of their supporters by overturning the two-goal deficit.
A selection of Man City fans on social media couldn’t help wax lyrical about Brighton’s midfield colossus Bissouma, who really caught the eye against them.
Bissouma, 24, has earned widespread praise throughout the campaign due to his tireless displays in the centre of the park, and he was as defensively disciplined as ever on Tuesday.
The Mirror reported earlier this month that Man City boss Guardiola is weighing up a potential bid this summer for the £30million-rated central midfielder.
It is understood that Arsenal, Everton, West Ham and Tottenham have also been tracking the Mali international.
Here are some Man City fans reacting to Bissouma’s latest display:
If you put bissouma in this city side he will do twice the job rodri does
