Manchester City

Former Liverpool defender, Stephen Warnock says he is worried about Manchester City’s defense. He goes ahead to describe some of the players as ‘not strong.’

Pep Guardiola worried

City faced their first defeat of the season as Norwich beat them 3-2 at Carrow Road. The club was without the center-back Aymeric Laporte. The player is said to miss for five to six months after suffering from a knee injury.

Warnock said, “You look at Manchester City’s bench. At the back of mind, it is not strong enough for defenses to win you titles.”

“The players that Liverpool have got to come into their attack will always win the games. They are more than capable of scoring goals.”

“So, I fear for Manchester City, I always worried that Kompany leaving would be a big loss to them, not only on the pitch but in and around the training grounds, the mentally and understanding he has.”

“He didn’t play many games for City but it was in the big games that he was needed.”

City’s shock defeat to Norwich has left them five points behind Liverpool in the Premier League table. Warnock is impressed with the strength of Jurgen Klopp’s team.

“Everyone always says, when Liverpool lose one of their front three, they are in big trouble because they won’t score goals. I look at it the other way around.”

“I think Liverpool’s cover in defense, they have got Lovren and Gomez who are sat on the bench, aren’t playing and are more than capable of playing in the first team quite comfortably.”

John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi started the match against Norwich, but their manager Pep Guardiola dismissed suggestions his side have a glaring weakness in their defense.

After the defeat, he said, “It’s a partnership that has played a lot. We have got Fernandinho and Rodri who can play there in other situations and it’s not a worry. Things happen.”
