If City’s slim chance of league European qualification is realised on goal difference then Shay Given will have played his part in protecting City’s currently positive record…

Seamus kept the score against Arsenal respectable in another inept away performance where this City side’s seeming unwillingness to hassle and chase opponents was never more apparant.

Micah Richards steady improvement continues meanwhile, very often our sole attacking threat.
