  1. Fred says:

    It was a terrific goal. Too bad Chelsea only started playing in the 2nd half after being 2 goals down.

    Torres should have got a penalty and Aguero should have received a red card for his lunge at Luiz.

    City are definitely the most skilful team in the EPL and can beat anyone on their day but too bad they aren’t consistent. Even more impressive was that City did it without Silva.

    Now let’s hope the FA Cup final isn’t a cake walk for City and that Wigan can give them a game.

  2. Steve says:

    I don’t want he deal is about Silva. He is a great player, but not the only good player for City.

    • Evan says:

      On his day he can be the best player in the league. City would have scored at least another if Silva was on the pitch.

  3. Frank says:

    Silva is among the best players in the league and when City play the top teams he can be the difference. Yes, City have other quality players but they aren’t as good without him.

    Chelsea will feel hard done by because Kompany should have seen red on his shirt-pulling on Torres and a penalty should have been given to Chelsea. The officials missed it. The Aguero lunge at Luiz was also a staright red that the Officials missed. Both incidents could have changed the game and Chelsea would have had an advantage.
