Manchester City midfielder Rodri has urged his teammates to ‘wake up’ after a shock 3-2 away loss to Norwich City on Saturday
Although entered the game as big underdogs, the returnees have taken advantage of each mistake the Citizens have committed to secure their second victory in the Premier League this term.
Meanwhile, a failure at Carrow Road means the reigning holders now trail the league toppers, Liverpool, by five points ahead of their home clash with Watford next weekend.
The early-season wonder, Teemu Pukki, has helped his team seal a remarkable win with a goal and an assist, with Sergio Aguero and Rodri scored one apiece for the visitors.
Desperate to see his team bounce back as soon as possible, the Spanish midfielder has urged his teammates to ‘wake up.’

“I think we lost this game because of us,” the Spain midfielder told City’s website, as transcribed by Sky Sports.
“I think they don’t do many things to win this game. Of course, congratulations to Norwich, they play really good football, but today we gave them chances.
“That’s something we have to look at ourselves and solve our mistakes. It’s not normal. The three goals are mistakes.
“The team is working, we are down now, but we have to wake up because we have matches every three days.”
