More on City draw

Great game today! I'm happy and upset at the same time. Proud of our team and of our fans. We played against one of the biggest teams in the world and we didn’t feel the pressure.
Crazy game today! Not often you can say your disappointed with a draw against such a top side. Onto the next.
More seriously, obviously I am aware that the Blues are at the very, very high level and that it requires a lot of things because there is already quality in attack! BUT what is certain is that I am determined to continue killing myself in the field to be part of it one day
