Man City defence not good enough to compete with elite teams.
Pep Guardiola’s men tasted defeat for the first team this season losing 1-0 to Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.
Joao Cancelo was seen making a few mistakes in that game that ultimately resulted in a Mo Salah goal.
Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes Man City lacks defenders to compete with elite clubs in European football.
“We’ve seen in the past Pep [Guardiola] tinker around with his team. I personally do not feel that the defence that he’s got, whichever two [centre-backs] he puts out, are good enough at the highest level against the highest level to be two-on-two at the back like that,” Wright said.
“I thought you’d see Cancelo coming in and making that mistake [for Mohamed Salah’s goal]. In the Champions League you will be punished, we know that they have got Erling Haaland up top now – who will score goals out of nothing and like I say he should’ve scored today. But defensively, if they leave themselves that bare, they will be punished and we’ve seen that before.”
