I mean, at least the title isn't still in the balance...if this was anything other than a dead rubber game I'd be legitimately worried.

Theyre still getting away with little nudges. In that case Jesus nudged TAA in the back just enough so that he couldnt collect the ball, not enough for a foul but that move doesnt get started without it. We need to do more of that against this sort of team
I disagree. We never get that kind of leeway from referees to do that. It's always a foul against us when we do, but nothing when it's against us.

do we play under some new rule that we are not allowed to breaking up the counter-attack?

What’s up with Trent? He’s all over the place and no real awareness or reaction to defensive situations?

We usually put double the effort when we face City. We are monsters when there's something at stake. And City are shit scared. It's not the same for obvious reasons. We are not outplayed or anything, complete lack of concentration and focus. From defense to attack.

Just let this be a lesson. And good losing to City this one, than the next two we'll play in league.

Most teams would have sat back and tried to keep it at 3-0. That's not in our DNA.

But after missing those sitters, we are primed to be hit on the break, especially with Ryad Mahraz specialist on.

Yeah, i know what you mean. It also helps that they go down like theyve been shot from a nudge that hard.
