‘Very sloppy’ – Man City fans slam De Bruyne’s performance vs West Ham United

Share

Manchester City lost out on penalties to West Ham in the Round of 16 stage of the Carabao Cup at the London Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Pep Guardiola’s side were held to a 0-0 draw at the London Stadium before the tie was forced into a penalty shoot-out.

The defeat means Guardiola’s recent dominance over the competition has come to an end after a heroic effort from David Moyes’s side.

Guardiola’s men have beaten Arsenal, Chelsea, Aston Villa and Tottenham in that order since 2017/2018 and could have make it fifth this season if they defeated high-flying West Ham.

Though the first-half saw City dominate possession, the visitors found little joy in the final third due to some resolute defending by David Moyes’ side, who caused City their fair share of problems.

Many Sky Blues were left unimpressed with the first half performance of Kevin De Bruyne, who is yet to hit his best after returning from injury.

Though he produced a few moments of brilliance, it wasn’t nearly enough to break down the West Ham backline. Needs to start producing with key clashes against Manchester United and PSG looming.

Some City supporters believe he is yet to hit his best form so far this season.
