Man City beat West Brom 5-0 on Tuesday night to move top of the Premier League table.
Gary Lineker took to Twitter, to say the performance from City was frightening for the rest of the Premier League….. and Europe.
And in fairness, it’s hard to disagree – well, domestically, anyway.
At the back, City seem to have shut up shop. All of a sudden John Stones is playing like a proper central defender again. Stones has now formed a solid partnership with Rúben Dias, a partnership that is keeping Aymeric Laporte out of the side.
In midfield, City still have plenty in reserve, despite losing Kevin de Bruyne to injury for 4 to 6 weeks.
German midfielder, Ilkay Gundogan is playing out of his skin, and probably having his best season yet at the Etihad. Phil Foden is getting better and growing in stature every week. While Rodri is now the established anchor in midfield.
Up front things are improving as well. Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling are starting to find top form again, with both on the score sheet against West Brom.
And then there is the small matter of Gabriel Jesus, and Sergio Aguero. Basically, City have gone top without either of them.
Good luck to the rest of the Premier League teams, when they do both get fit.
