I think Rafa Benitez had his pants on fire when saying this about Man City team selection: “It was not about resting players for Saturday…”

Stats over last two seasons show relegation form without Cheick Tiote and safety with him…
Alan Shearer: “Mitrovic is out, Shelvey is out, they’re out for a reason, they’ve not given enough to the team.”
He never stopped going: breaking up City attacks, tidying up play and of course, hurting people because, you know, Tiote.

Jamaal Lascelles: I’m there to boss people about, make sure everyone’s doing their jobs and keep on at everybody, and I think it’s working.”

Rafa Benitez: “The reaction of the team…you have to be pleased.”
Vincent Kompany: “It was a hostile environment and not a bad result.”
