Some Sky blue fans are furious with Benjamin Mendy after Manchester City’s 1-1 draw at home to West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday night.
Mendy started against West Brom in place of usual makeshift left-back Joao Cancelo as Pep Guardiola made four changes from the side that drew 0-0 with Manchester United.
Stole the show with his terrific haircut but in terms of his performance, this was not the best outing for the French right-back as he was largely anonymous, offering little in the way of attack.
Mendy as well as most City players failed to impress as they couldn’t squeeze a last-gasp winner past Slaven Bilic’s side despite enjoying the lionshare of possession.
For all their possession, Benjamin Mendy and Rodri were both off-target with efforts that could be classed as more hopeful than threatening.
Guardiola ended up swapping him for Kyle Walker late on. Despite piling pressure on the West Brom goal, City just couldn’t beat the inspired Sam Johnstone.
The draw leaves City sixth in the table, five points behind leaders Tottenham and Liverpool.

Benjamin Mendy isn’t suppose to be a pro footballer. Man can’t do anything.

Pep needs to do Mendy like he did stones… Or sell him if he can’t help him

Benjamin Mendy is the worst defender we have… he’s completely useless and nobody seems keen on pointing it out. Needs to never play for city again
