‘If only he got consistency’ – Man City Fans react to Mendy’s brilliant performance in Carabao Cup win at Burnley

Must read

Manchester City fans were certainly pleased with Benjamin Mendy’s brilliant performance in the Carabao Cup win at Burnley, amid talk the Citizens are lining up some strong competition for him.

The Frenchman improved on Sunday’s shocker as he seemed far more comfortable with Laporte next to him. His cross for the goal was intelligent, and not the first he had delivered in the game.

This was a good response to the 5-2 humiliation by Leicester though Saturday’s Premier League trip to Leeds may prove a more exacting test for him.

Mendy is still an excellent attacking full-back and there are few better at delivering the ball from wide areas.

Injuries, though, have taken their toll. Mendy’s career continues to be disrupted by repeated set-backs, and by now he looks significantly less athletic, less mobile than he did when he first arrived at the club in 2017.

The France defender despite putting in a strong showing against Burnley on Wednesday, that may not stop City from exploring other options in the coming days.

With just four days of the transfer window still remaining, a new left-back could yet arrive at the Etihad Stadium. The Blues are reportedly to have stepped up their pursuit of Ajax left back Nicolas Tagliafico.
