Wasted Chances

It’s not just at the back our decision making has been costly, this has also materialised in front of goal, with too many missed chances going awry that could have been decisive in massive games, at crucial moments.

Numerous examples spring to mind when thinking about chances that would have killed off a game have been misplaced, to put it nicely.

A prime example being Kevin De Bruyne’s sitter against Chelsea in the 3-1 defeat at the Etihad, this would have made the game 2-0 to the sky blues but the Belgians effort went astray as it came back to haunt City, three points that could have been decisive in the title race.

Stats courtesy of Squawka show that even though City have had the fourth most efforts in the league, our actual shot accuracy is down in the lower half of the table in 12th. A vastly poor total considering the shots undertook reflective of our habit of wasting prosperous chances.
