Ilkay Gundogan claims Man City can survive without a striker

Manchester City can thrive without a traditional No.9 claims Gundogan.

The Cityzens struggled to sign a centre-forward this summer window after Sergio Aguero left the club permanently for Barcelona.

The team have been winning games without a prolific striker for a while now which is an unconventional approach by Guardiola.

“It is always about what we make of the situations,” Gundogan said.

“There were a lot of discussions at the start of the season that we were lacking a typical number nine. But I think we already showed last season that we are able to play without this typical striker.

“We have proven that again this season that we are able to be very flexible and play a few players up front.

“At the end, it is always about finding the spaces your opponent will give you and then being aggressive in front of goal to score. A mix of that gives you goals. If you have a striker or not, it doesn’t matter.”
