26 touches, 0 penalty area entries; Bony flops for Manchester City

Wilfried Bony: By The Numbers:  : 20160312

The striker didn't enjoy a good afternoon in the draw with Norwich City.

Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony was in dire form at Carrow Road as his side drew 0-0 with Norwich City this weekend.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side disappointed against the relegation threatened Canaries, as they failed to create any clear goalscoring chances in the game.

It was a huge blow to their hopes of staying in the title race, with them now nine points behind leaders Leicester City with nine games remaining.

Part of the problem was City’s strikers, who failed to create anything in the game, and Bony was among those who struggled.

In a 58-minute display, he managed just 26 touches in total, one around every two minutes in the game.

In that time he managed to lose possession eight times in total, as well as enjoying a 71% passing accuracy, the worst of any of City’s outfield players.

Indeed, he failed to be a threat to the opposition at all, with just one final third entry to his name while he didn’t get into the opposition box once.

That culminated in him only getting one attempt at goal, which wasn’t on target, in a truly dreadful display from the Ivorian.
