Liverpool Steamroll City

Liverpool Steamroll City

It was Deja Vu for Liverpool and Manchester City playing each other again after just 3 days and the final of the Capital Cup. Klopp opted for Jon Flanagan as right back and switched Nathaniel Clyne to left back and it set up an interesting duel between Flanagan and Raheem Sterling. Flanagan set his marker early with a robust challenge on Sterling. Pellegrini was without Yaya Toure through injury and he brought Joe Hart back into the side. The game …

Spurs Topple Manchester City

Spurs Topple Manchester City

A decisive game between 2nd placed Spurs and 4th place City was irretrievably affected by a diabolical decision by referee Mark Clattenburg. Clattenburg adjudged that Raheem Sterling had hand balled the ball when replays show the ball struck his back first and then ricocheted up off his elbow. Sterling had his back to the ball and it was clearly non-intentional. Harry Kane confidently tucked away the penalty on the 53rd minute. City had chances prior to that, with Aguero missing …

The Flying Foxes Maul Manchester City

The Flying Foxes Maul Manchester City

Leicester have taken a trip to the lion's den and come back with three points. City were Leicester's biggest title rivals and an early somewhat fortuitous goal by Robert Huth in the 3rd minute set the tone of the game. It completely set the mood of what materialised thereafter. City looked downtrodden and defeated even after that first goal, the body language was languid and there was no display of any energy or hunger or desire. There seems no pride …
City Stroll to Win against Sunderland

City Stroll to Win against Sunderland

Manchester City sailed to a spectacular 4-1 win against relegation bound Sunderland on boxing day. The game was symbolically summarised by its first goal, a delicious cross from DeBruyne headed in by Raheem Sterling. Raheem is 5ft 7 facing 2 6ft plus centre backs John O'Shea and Seb Coates, and yet he headed in unchallenged on 12minutes. Sunderland were very poor, almost abject, unable to retain possession, and very weak in the challenge. Watching this Seb Coates display Liverpool fans …
Arsenal Ram Raid City

Arsenal Ram Raid City

Arsenal took on heavyweights Manchester City at The Emirates in a tight display last night. Man City dominated the first ten minutes with an absolutely glorious chance spurned by Kevin DeBruyne to square the ball to David Silva for a certain goal on 6minutes. Instead DeBruyne took a shot and pulled it wide, Silva was apoplectic, remonstrating with him, throwing his arms in the air. Such chances and instants change games. Arsenal gradually increased their presence in the game and …
City Stutter to Win against Swansea

City Stutter to Win against Swansea

Swansea arrived at the Etihad managerless after the sacking of Garry Monk, and the interim manager Alan Curtis made numerous changes. City chose to rest De Bruyne pairing Silva Navas and Sterling ahead of Toure and Ferdandhino. Bony gave City the lead fed by Jesus Navas in the 23rd minute. Pellegrini restoring Silva knows Silva will be key to the run in and was very fortunate that Joe Hart was in top form. City have an abundance of talent but …
