Many have jokingly put it out there on social media that Celtic were the team that broke Manchester City this season after the enthralling 3-3 draw at Celtic Park earlier this season.
Before that game Pep Guardiola’s men were on a winning streak that seen them hit the summit of the Premier League. Since that night their form has been far from impressive. Directly after the game with Celtic they were torn apart by Spurs and have never really recovered that early season form BC (Before Celtic).Celtic had chances to win that night and so did City but it was made apparent by Rodgers line up how he could get to City.
Man City now sit in 5th place in the premier league a whopping ten points off Chelsea and Pep admitted their title chances have gone.
Asked about his change in style since the start of the season Pep Celtic as a reason why he changed his setup.
PEP: (On system change after Spurs away defeat) We had problems with 4-3-3 at Celtic a few days before. It was not the reason, though. #mcfc

So you be the judge. Did Brendan Rodgers and Celtic break City?
