Having survived two or three early scares, we managed to concede just when it looked like we actually had a foothold in the match.  Football is unfortunate like that, sometimes.  Sergio Aguero's also really really unfairly good at times.

Other than that, it really hasn't been too tragic.  We've had decent bits of possession, and have fashioned a few half-chances.  Whenever not disrupted by persistent fouling from Silva and Fernandinho, we've strung together passes well enough.  Except when we've turned the ball over in midfield in silly fashion, all of which have lead to scary City counters.  So let's not do that so much.

Decent individual showings so far.  Ivanovic has been a rock though he's not getting much help whenever Kolarov bounds forward, too.  Center backs not the fleetest of foot, obviously, but have done decently.  Fabregas needs to improve tremendously though.  At least dial in the set pieces.

So, it's 1-0 at the half, Aguero's goal the difference.  All to do.
