Manchester City haven’t quite hit full form under Pep Guardiola, despite a blistering start to the campaign, and the Citizens face a stern test to achieve a spot in the top-four as Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United are breathing down their necks.
With the defence looking lacklustre and the attack not always able to compensate at the other end, City have far too many problems to be considered title contenders at this point in time- which is unheard of for a Guardiola side.
Many may point to the Catalan boss as liable for these issues but the fact of the matter is there is members of the City squad who aren’t quite pulling their weight this season, which leaves the likes of Kevin De Bruyne with a lot more work to do.
Now that the January window is open, City may strengthen their ranks further and these three players definitely need to step their game up in the second-half of the campaign.
