Lessons from Manchester City vs. Southampton

Today Manchester City triumphed over Southampton 4-1. Here you will find valuable things learned from this game.

 

Lesson 1: Yaya Toure can’t be stopped

Yaya Toure converted a penalty in the second minute to give the Citizens the lead. After that Toure was unstoppable. Toure won a mind-boggling 7 out of 8 tackles.

Lesson 2: You can’t beat Manchester City at the Etihad

After demolishing Southampton 4-1, Manchester City moved to an incredible 14-1 at home in the Premier League. They have scored 52 goals and allowed only 10 in these games.

Lesson 3: Luke Shaw can be overrated at times

Luke Shaw did put in a decent performance today. But not one of a player attracting attention from European football giants. He played more of an attacking role than usual today which didn’t suit him very well. He was handed a 6.17 rating out of ten today.

  1. If you want to be a good football writer, then try and ape how Michael Cox (@Zonal_Marking) and Jonathan Wilson (@jonawils) write about tactics and trends, how Statsbomb (@StatsBomb and @mixedknuts) write about analytics, and how Daniel Taylor (@DTguardian) writes in general. Devour their stuff, hone in on what you’re good at, and take it from there. Best of luck.
