Woeful defeat to Villa has shown that ‘unbelievable’ £63m star is Man City’s most important player.

Man City’s most vital player is the ‘unbelievable’ £63 million sensation, as evidenced by their dreadful loss to Villa.Manchester City has once again lost a point in the Premier League, this time to an outstanding Aston Villa squad.

City arrived at Villa Park in an attempt to reverse their losing streaks, having been held to draws by Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea, and Liverpool.It was bound to be a difficult contest against the high-flying Villa, and the hosts dominated the entire contest.

 

City was far inferior to Unai Emery’s squad, which maintained possession of the ball exceptionally well and forced Pep Guaridola’s squad to make frequent errors.

 

City was unable to regain control of the game in the second half due to Villa’s once more outstanding performance all over the field; Leon Bailey secured the victory with a deflection off Ruben Dias.

 

The Aston Villa loss further demonstrated Manchester City’s deficiency in the absence of Rodri.The two were utterly outclassed by the Villa midfield, which featured the outstanding Boubacar Kamara, John McGinn, and Douglas Luiz.

 

Both players appeared awkward and lethargic, with Stones appearing particularly so considering his limited football experience this season.

 

It was difficult to watch the game without thinking of Rodri, whom John Obi Mikel recently referred to as “unbelievable,” and the control he would have provided.

 

The city was frenzied and disorderly tonight. Generally, when Rodri performs, one feels at ease and in command.As the best holding midfielder in the world and a player valued at £63 million, his absence against a very strong team was inescapable to some degree.

 

However, the fact that City have lost every game this season in which he has not started demonstrates just how vital he is.
