Why we will be relegated

He’s created more chances than any other player in the PL other than De Bruyne. There’s  Very little chance that he will be playing his football in the championship next season

Apparently so, but he hasn’t scored any. Unlike Cantwell who is English and scored six already? 

So Todd will be worth a lot more than Emi as it stands, and if we have to sell he will go first.

Todd is a very decent player but Buendia is worth quite a lot more.

To touch on the zonal marking thing, I honestly think that our lack of physical size would mean we’d be even more vulnerable if we adopted a man to man approach. 
The zonal approach means that you’re vulnerable to good delivery and movement; it’s likely that attackers will get the run on relatively statically positioned defenders. If the delivery isn’t good then you can win the ball with players positioned in key areas that would be unlikely to win a contested header. 
 

As for reasons..

 

We haven’t taken advantage clinically enough when on top and we ship two goals a game. Man City could probably concede two a game and still win more than they lose. We can’t. We’ve been desperately unlucky with defensive injuries and VAR at times but there have been too many games where we have also somehow contrived to concede twice when comfortable in games. 
 

Outlook? Bleak with a chance of sunshine breaking through the clouds.
