After the game, Pep spoke about why he hasn’t made a single player change in this game. He revealed that he did not want the team to lose momentum after Grealish equalized the team quickly in the second half.
“I started thinking about using Gundo (Ilkay Gundogan) because he ran well in the middle of the pitch. So there are some gaps because Rice and Soucek are always following Bernardo and Kevin De Bruyne.”
“But the truth was that after we had a quick shot and Jack was in his momentum, Riyad was more involved in the game than the first half. So I decided to let everyone continue playing. It was pretty much the same against Crystal Palace that we couldn’t win. So why change it? It’s the same,” said Pep.
