Overall though I thought we were excellent for the first 30mins and game managed the remaining 60 adequately enough. Bernardo and Aguero were outstanding and that finish was jizz inducing. If only our remaining games could be this straight forward!

I wouldn't worry. Both have had injuries and both need time to get their aim back in.

Even when they're shit they occupy players and leave space for others, and they can only get better.

Weird innit? He is making bad decisions with the ball so often. The exact opposite to what has made him so good for us over the years. ]

Yeah it really is. I also think he plays better with Leroy in the team and we look more effective overall as a team with them down the left side than we do with Silva/Sterling or other combo but even with that it shouldn't detract from the decline in quality from him. One of his many great attributes is the weight on his passes, yet I've seen him get it wrong more times in the past 4 months than in all of his previous games put together and it's not just that as you know. He looked immense before he got injured, but surely that can't be underlying cause of his form? He's come back from injuries plenty of times before but the magic was always there even if the fitness wasn't.
