City in Pole Position for first ever Champions League final

Manchester City produced a stunning second half display in Paris on Wednesday night, and they are now in pole position to appear in their first ever Champions League final.

City turn tables on PSG in Champions League turnaround

Trailing 1-0 to PSG at half time, Man City were absolutely brilliant in the second half. They completely dominated PSG, and that includes both Mbappe and Neymar.

Yes, both of PSG's star players looked a threat throughout the night. But as the game went on their influence seemed to wane, while City just grew stronger and stronger. And once Kevin de Bruyne fired in the equaliser in the 64th minute, there was only ever going to be one winner.

There was an element of luck - to say the least - about both of City's goals, but I don't think anybody could deny they were the better side overall. They thoroughly deserved their win.

City's Front Three Look Formidable

Kevin de Bruyne again led the side brilliantly, and with Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez alongside him, City have an - at times - unplayable forward three.

City may lack a focal point up front, and at times last night balls were rolling across the 6 yard box just asking to be tapped home by Aguero or Jesus. But when those three play in tandem together, they look absolutely formidable.

And what of Phil Foden! At the start of the season plenty - including me - thought he wouldn't get game time at Man City. How wrong us doubters were, Foden is now one of the first names on the team sheet.

Foden is now keeping the likes of Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus out of the City side. And before anybody cries, they're all strikers, Foden is a midfielder - have a look where Foden is playing, as part of the front three!

All the pundits on BT Sports agreed that City are all but through, and no one can say they're not in pole position. But at the same time, a side containing the likes of di Maria, Neymar, Mbappe, etc, can't be totally written off. After all, they were in the final of this competition last season.

PSG need at least 2 goals at the Etihad next Tuesday, and they are capable of scoring them. But I would have to envision that City will find the back of the net as well.

It promises to be an interesting night, and I can't wait to watch it all unfold.
