Claudio Bravo’s Manchester City debut was nothing short of a nightmare. The Chilean goalkeeper was signed by Pep Guardiola for being good with the feet. And Guardiola would be quite satisfied  to see the footwork of his goalie but his vulnerability to deal with the crosses will have the Spanish tactician worried.

He fumbled a cross in the first half and dropped it at Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s feet for the striker to volley home and reduce the deficit. In the second half too he was looking vulnerable but luckily for him United players failed to capitailse.

Well, one cannot doubt his potentials as he had performed brilliantly for Barcelona and Chile but fans on Twitter trolled the Chile international for his poor performance.

Meanwhile, Manchester City’s brilliant start to the season continued as they defeated Manchester United bu 2-1 to register their fourth win on the trot. City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne stole the show with his brilliant performance. The Belgium international was involved in both the goals scored by City.  De Bruyne opened the scoring  when a Aleksandar Kolarov’s long ball was flicked on by Kelechi Iheanacho into the path of the De Bruyne who stole the ball in front of Daley Blind and found the back of the net after sending United goalkeeper David De Gea the wrong way. The former Chelsea man played a big part in the second goal too as his shot after coming back off the post fell straight to Kelechi Iheanacho who calmly tapped it in. United clawed their way back into the match after Ibrahimovic scored late in the first half but City held on to bag all the three points and go three points clear at the top of the table.

Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
