‘He Was Abysmal’: Man City Fans Unhappy With Defenders Performance


Manchester City fell 8 points behind leaders Chelsea with a 2-2 draw against lowly Queens Park Rangers. Martin Demichelis scored an own goal, much to the dismay of the fans.

The Champions fell behind twice to Queens Park Rangers, with goals from Charlie Austin – and an own goal from Martin Demichelis. Sergio Aguero saved the day for Manchester City with two individual efforts but it wasn’t enough to give City the three points.

The Manchester City fans were not happy with how their defensive duo performed. Elaquim Managala and Demichelis look lost without Vicent Kompany and their defensive deficiencies have been highlighted in their recent games. The fans placed specific blame on the Argentinian defender. Obviously he was at fault for this goal, and perhaps this game – but I think Demichelis doesn’t get the credit he deserves overall. I think he has improved massively since his arrival at the Etihad, where he was regularly criticised for him performances, or lack of one.

Pellegrini to blame, or just an unfortunate mistake from Demichelis?
