Video: John Stones Gives a Brutal Assessment of His Own Defending v Monaco

John Stones has been forced to give a damning assessment of his own defending on live TV tonight – after putting in a dodgy performance against Monaco in the Champions League.

In fairness to Stones, he and the entire City backline looked less than self-assured from the first whistle, in-keeping with the club’s leaky displays in the Premier League this season.

But the standout moment of the entire match was when a revitalised Radamel Falcao took Stones to the cleaners and made him look like a schoolboy, before calmly chipping the ball over a helpless Willy Caballero:

It wasn’t a moment Stones will be wanting to dwell on too much, and he did come up with a response by scoring to make it 4-3 in the 5-3 victory.

And to give him even more credit, the England international has also fronted up and faced TV cameras to explain the brutal moment:

Don’t worry about it too much, John – when he’s in that sort of form, Falcao can do that to anybody.

What do you make of Stones’ progression at City this season?
