Martin Keown for The Daily Mail:
Manuel Pellegrini wants his teams to play with two strikers.
That’s his philosophy but it left Man City exposed, especially in the first half.
They only played one striker in this fixture last year, so he clearly wanted to go on the offensive. But David Silva and Samir Nasri are not designed to chase and press teams.
They needed one striker sitting deep but with two further forward and the City midfield chasing shadows, Barcelona could dominate.
A bit simplistic, but true nonetheless.
