Manchester City were leaking goals against Leicester and the Claudio Bravo jokes ran rampant - again

Claudio Bravo has come under some stick since he replaced Joe Hart at Manchester City, and sadly for the Chilean his performance against Leicester has merely added fuel to the fire.

The former Barcelona man conceded three goals in the first 20 minutes, and though the Premier League champions were looking back to their brilliant best many still couldn’t help but blame the keeper.

In an experience Bravo has had a number of times this season, Twitter of course reacted with a host of jokes.

Like that he couldn’t save a fiver…

Easy, Gary.

Or a Word document.

Or a Microsoft Excel document.

Or a phone number.

Different – well done.

Or a video game…

Or a dog drowning in a teacup, obviously.

Nothing needs to be said about this one.

Of course Hart – now on loan at Torino in the Italian Serie A – was getting a mention again too in light of the City keeper’s performance…

Bravo should take heart though – pardon the pun – as he did manage a save in the first half in the end, pushing away Riyad Mahrez’s curling effort.
