Although we drew the match yesterday, Man City won the Shield via penalties. At the end of the day, Man City walk away winners, and got the better of us. That's what it's about. That's what happened last season. 1 point. We played better than them for much of the season, and arguably better in the head to head, but Man City picked up the trophy.
So have we closed the gap? Evidently not. Not yet. We are still in the moment of not doing enough.
Nothing looks like changing just yet? Man City strengthened over the summer. We did not. So, now face the reality of having to excel and hit above our weight yet again. Man City can go and put in another storming season without much push. We will have to really push hard to go and do what we did last season. Think of all those match defining moments aka Origi. Now we have to go and do it all again.
Unless we click, and stay clicked, whilst Man City mess up, we will face de ja vu come May 2020.
