Big Problem With The Pep Guardiola Techniques

Since The 2-0 Trash by Tottenham, Manchester City has failed to make a win in all competition and in most of this matches they have to come back to make a draw which is not exactly what we know about Pep Guardiola's Performance in a team as rich as Manchester City.

The Game with Tottenham marked the end to their unbeaten run which had no draw but since that fixture Manchester City fails to make three points, the next game with Everton had them Struggling for a point and thank God, Nolito came from the bench to give them that, the next fixture was with Barcelona in the Champions League and it had Manchester City surfer a 4-0 loss at Camp Nou still the yesterday fixture between Southampton was as 1-1 draw with City coming from behind to pick a point.

The problem here is not the Draw or loss the team keeps on earning, the problem is the cause of their fall out of winning ways. After their unbeaten run was shattered, no one needed a magic to know that there is a problem with the team or techniques used by the Manchester City side.

Pep Guardiola takes up the possession in the field, passing the ball around till a loop hole is created then it's been capitalized upon to score or some skillful and creative player picks up the ball and creates an opportunity for a goal, but by doing this or for this to be effectively carried out, his defense is left with almost no one at times one defender and when the opposition picks a counter as most teams in the Premier League do, the Manchester City defense is left hanging and the team surfers.

Apart from the fact that the Guardiolian theory in football is good but the premier League football theory will not fit his kind of play because Premier League teams make use of counter attack techniques and when a team is holding on to the ball like City is doing the Opposition will revert to defense then any opportunity becomes a counter and if your not properly guarded behind it will be a goal.

Therefore, the City defense line has to be worked on if they are to gain back their winning ways, so far so good Manchester City have been able to maintain a place at the top,. THAT GOOD, but any other draw might not be so good for them due to that close competition at the top, hence a solution to that defense issues should be done before the next fixture will help.
