What Man City players are doing to get the best out of Jeremy Toku

For a team with one of the most devastating and dazzling attacks the Premier League has ever seen, Manchester City let their poor attacking performance against Liverpool slip to the side.

Erling Holland scored again, Julian Alvarez missed a great chance and Phil Foden came close to scoring, but it was only when Jeremy Doku got the ball that a chilly Saturday lunchtime warmed up. His 11 drops were the most in a Premier League game over two years.

But Toku was flawless. There was the odd trip into the area where Liverpool wanted to send him on and lost possession. At times he looked good to shoot but chose to keep running.

For most of the second half, City looked like they needed a second goal and Toku looked like the player to deliver it. He created Alvarez’s chance and another close-range chance for Holland, but Liverpool escaped with a point as neither player failed to convert.

Toku’s dynamic wing has been a key difference for City this season, however, in a team accustomed to control and structure under Pep Guardiola, his teammates let the £55million winger run free and create his moments of magic.

„He’s a good signing and he’s been playing well for us. We’ll continue to progress – hopefully continue to learn and improve and help us win titles,” said Bernardo Silva, who recently played in the left-back No.8 role. Pairs well with Doku.
