Man City one bad game away from a bad season, says Arsenal legend
Merson was speaking after City's dramatic exit from Champions League competition in hands of Premier League side Tottenham on Wednesday night. VAR made a huge decision denying City goal which could send them to the semi-finals but that took a twist and ended the club's hopes of a quadruple this season.
"They're one bad game away from a bad season. I mean that. This is a top quality team, they should win the league, they have the players. To win the FA Cup and the League Cup, I don't see that as a big deal for them," he told The Debate.
"The pressure is on now, massively on. They're 90 minutes away from a bad season. Second is no good for Man City. They've got too many good players. I've always played the game: you've got to win. Coming second is a waste of time. This is a top quality team, don't forget that. That bench would get into any other team they were playing against"
City, who have already won the Carabao Cup will turn their attention to Premier League and once again will be up against Tottenham on Saturday 20th at Etihad.
