A good big team will always beat a good little team. City have a very small team - some make SWP look like a giant. Arsenal had two or three lads well over 6 feet tall, with skill and pace too.

City were well in control up to half time but Arsenal stepped up the physical level in the second half and City ended up lucky to be only one goal down.

Possitives are the performances of Boyata and Wabara in the middle of defence. Nimely is a definite prospect, plenty of skill and pace.

It's hard to see city coming back from this defeat, but it's not impossible
