Carabao Cup
With City closing all the third tiers I was moved a lot lower and not in an ideal position for taking pics so I thought I would see how my phone performed on the day.
It was an easy win for City despite making nine changes from the Villa game. Phil Foden started and there was a debut for Tommy Doyle grandson of Mike Doyle and Glyn Pardoe. and there was a very late first appearance for Bernabe. Doyle did quite well really fitting into the team and showing some of his skills.
With City having almost 80% possession it was just a matter of being patient and waiting for the goals to come. Otamendi scored with a header from a Benardo cross following a corner and Aguero notched two from close range to bring his total for the season to 12. At three nil City relaxed a bit and Southampton actually came into our half - disgraceful! They did score to lift a surprisingly high number of visiting fans after their massive defeat last weekend, Bravo had hardly anything to do on his second outing this season. The defence coped with the odd attack and the main issue was breaking through the visiting defence determined on keeping the score down.
