We Needed A Reaction:
After what was a poor run of form over the past seven days it was important that the Blues showed character. Not since February 2016 had we had such a poor run of results, and we had to stop the rot.
It was important we went to Wembley, and show exactly what we could do. And, from the opening whistle, that’s exactly what we did. High pressing with the strings being pulled by Silva and De Bruyne. The wide players were full of running and Gundogan looked comfortable in the middle of the park.
Two goals in three minutes gave City a commanding lead, and the Blues looked out of sight. So when Tottenham pulled one back through Harry Kane it put City fans nerves on edge. Yes I know the Spurs goal was actually scored by Christian Eriksen, but by Wednesday it will probably be awarded to Kane.
Going into the half with the lead cut, City needed to show character. When Raheem started missing chances in the second half, the only logical outcome from a Manchester City fan perspective, would be a late Spurs equalizer.
Of course, Raheem kept plugging away and eventually got his goal.
