This Season City have suffered from frustrating failure – time and again – our play and possestion are at times superior and significant with a team that is loaded with such enviable wealth of attacking power.

This was evident in the FA Cup semi-final when they lost to Arsenal at Wembley, as well as against Man United, when they failed to break through even though they camped out in their half for nearly the whole second period.

Despite Manchester City dominating at home to Spurs in the league, they drew 2-2 in January. Earlier in April, they did not build on superiority plus an early goal scored by Leroy Sane in a 2-2 draw at the Gunners.

Guardiola must have faith that with a person like Sergio Aguero who has a total of 30 goals in all competitions, plus Kevin de Bruyne’s, Leroy Sane’s, and Raheem Sterling’s creativity  as well as Gabriel Jesus’ emerging brilliance to count on,  this problem will finally resolve itself.

David Silva is a remarkable player and  City will be hopeful that Ilkay Gundogan can develop his good start after he has recovered from a severe knee injury.

No doubt, there is talent here.  However, having been in this campaign, Guardiola will realize that Manchester City cannot afford to be generous come next season.
