KYLE WALKER CAUTIONS MAN CITY
Kyle Walker is not having the best of times at Man City. Despite arriving and thriving at the right back position for years, the England international has found playing time hard to come by this season.
Unlike Prima Donnas like Zlatan Ibrahimovic that have played under Pep Guardiola, Walker insists he is happy with the current arrangement in the club.
Another player that has not been appearing regularly for Man City is the Africa Cup of Nations gold medalist Riyad Mahrez. The Algerian managed to find the back of the net to seal the Citizens win over Chelsea on Sunday.
With the win providing so much fanfare as a result, most City faithful have started calling Liverpool’s bluff on their ability to win the Premier League this season. For them, the over confident ones most especially, the Reds are going to fumble and City’s current form will be able to nick the title once more.
For Walker though, that kind of thinking is both far-fetched and naïve given that Liverpool as a team have massively improved from last season.
They are 8 points off the top and increasingly looks capable of maintaining the top spot till the end of the season.
City coach Pep Guardiola has been rotating his players with some hope to strike a formula strong enough to topple the Reds from Merseyside and Chelsea’s game saw match-winner Riyad Mahrez starting his 6th game since the season commenced.
Kyle Walker believes Mahrez’s ability to put in match-winning performances despite been almost ostracized from the starting 11 proves that Guardiola’s rotation policy is bringing more peace than chaos. In sharp opposite to what is been reported by the English media.
In spite of Man City’s impressive win over Chelsea, Liverpool ensured their 8-point gap remained undented thanks their win over Crystal Palace.
