Manchester City fans react on Twitter to Nicolas Otamendi's performance against Arsenal

Manchester City Etihad

Manchester City were beaten 2-1 by Arsenal yesterday evening.

Nicolas Otamendi has managed to generally avoid criticism from Manchester City supporters, despite a shaky display at the Emirates Stadium last night against Arsenal.

Otamendi was brought to City from Valencia in the summer transfer window, but he is yet to fully prove himself in the Premier League.

The Argentine defender has put in some below-par displays, but City fans are convinced that he will come good.

Supporters of Manuel Pellegrini’s side feel that he is having to do too much covering work for Eliaquim Mangala to thrive currently.

Mangala was all at sea against Arsenal, and it forced Otamendi to look vulnerable.

The Gunners beat City last night, with Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud scoring the goals which provided them with the three points.

City did strike a late goal through Yaya Toure, but it was not enough to get them back into the contest.

City are now four points behind Arsenal and six points away from top of the table Leicester City, with frustrations rising at the Etihad Stadium.

Here is the best reaction from City fans to Otamendi’s display against Arsenal.
