(Video) Alexander-Arnold’s lack of effort for Grealish’s goal is hard to ignore

Posted by

Manchester City are a great football team and more than capable of scoring four goals against any team in the world but when you stop pressing and tracking back, like Trent Alexander-Arnold did, then there’s no surprise to see us conceding four goals.

Jack Grealish gave our No.66 a tough game but they were relatively evenly matched in the first-half, then a change of scoreline in the second-half changed the levels of performance too.

The former Villa man was first allowed time and space to find Kevin De Bruyne, before waltzing into the penalty area unmarked and unchallenged from our right-back.

It’s never nice to criticise our own players but you simply can’t ignore the lack of effort on show for the opposition’s fourth goal of the match.

  1. Why is it Klopp keeps picking the under performer, brings nothing to the table except occasional free kick …. Lots of players can do that and more importantly DEFEND !

  2. Gave Graelish plenty of room throughout the game. Horrible attitude and lack of team spirit.
