These were the best of the Man City defence jokes as Pep Guardiola’s expensively-assembled side suffered a 4-2 defeat at Leicester on Saturday.
The much-admired manager, appointed by the Manchester club this summer, was unable to prevent his side from going 3-0 down within twenty minutes of kick-off at the King Power.
Having shipped out former number one Joe Hart in favour of his preferred Claudio Bravo, the Spanish coach’s defensive selection has been heavily criticised.
So here is a selection of the best Man City defence jokes after their 4-2 loss at Leicester:
@ManCity does bravo have hands?

Are you a club out of form? Has your striker not scored in months? Is your third choice keeper in net?
Man City – the cure for your woes.

@ManCity Bravo would struggle to save a Word document

Luckily Bravo can do loads of #cool passes out to the CBs, otherwise all of these goals he throws into his own net wouldn't be worth it.

Pep Guardiola should recall Joe Hart from Torino and just stick him at centre-half.

Pep Guardiola preparing his first substitution. He's taking off Man City and putting on Barcelona

The worry with Man City is what kind of mess Pep Guardiola leaves for Sam Allardyce to clean up when he takes over next season.
— Paddy Power (@paddypower) December 10, 2016
City players would definitely be getting the hairdryer treatment after this game if only Pep owned one.

If City break Pep mentally it'll be up there with any silverware. He'll be drinking blue WKD in Bar Wave Monday morning.

When people tell you " Bravo " after doing something good
You begin to suspect if you did it well.

Kante with a great tackle on Nyom. Little known fact: every time he does that, a Pep-shaped angel dies.
