Commentator believes Guardiola will be incensed with what he seen during City 2-2 Palace.
According to Neil Lennon, Pep Guardiola would be incensed at what he witnessed during Manchester City and Crystal Palace’s Premier League match.
For BBC Radio 5 Live, the 52-year-old provided game coverage from Etihad Stadium.
And Neil Lennon’s thoughts on Pep Guardiola? Let’s examine this.
Neil Lennon’s remarks regarding Pep Guardiola
The Northern Irishman believes the Spaniard will be furious with his team for giving up more goals at the Etihad Stadium. He also applauded Phil Foden’s assist for Jack Grealish.
Midway through the second half, Jean-Philippe Mateta scored 2-1, putting Manchester City to sleep with a low cross from Jeffrey Schlupp.
Then, things took a turn for the worst as Michael Olise’s late penalty made it 2-2.
ADVANCED CITY STORIES
Rico Lewis and Jack Grealish goals had placed the treble winners ahead 2-0.
“Again, City haven’t kept a clean sheet,” Lennon remarked following Mateta’s victory over Ederson. I believe that goal may have been averted, though I’m not sure if that was due to a slight malaise that developed.
It’s something that could have been prevented, and Pep Guardiola will be really irritated.
In their 11 games at the Etihad Stadium this season, Manchester City has only managed three clean sheets thus far.
Unlike Guardiola’s team, who hardly ever gives opponents that many shots, let alone goals, the triple winners have actually given up eight goals in their last four home games.
Without John Stones, Manchester City was always going to be a weak team.
If John Stones had been able to start every game this season, we believe that Manchester City would have maintained a lot more clean sheets.
Together with Rodri, the England international provides a special kind of security in his hybrid role, acting as an extra body for both attacking and defending.
Manchester City has been a little uneasy since Stones’ departure and the clumsy introduction of Josko Gvardiol into the starting lineup on the left, so it is now up to Guardiola to figure out how to balance his team without the £47.5 million player.
