When the lineup was announced, and we had no Aguero or Jesus, I was happy. With Aguero coming back from injury, and Jesus not really having a great game last time out, the false nine is an option.
When it was Bernardo Silva who was down the center, we looked good. His ability with the ball close to his body allows him to move toward defenders and they back off. When Raheem rotated, he was guilty of missing some great chances.
Those misses certainly came back to haunt the blues, but to blame him totally is plain wrong.
