It’s becoming increasingly obvious that Pep Guardiola has run away with the title after his City side took their final top six scalp in the form of Tottenham Hotspur, can anyone beat them? No, probably not…
Unless you wear sky blue jersey’s a play devastating football week in, week out, you might as well give up any hopes of a league title. City romped to another 4-1 win over Tottenham, keeping them eleven points clear.
The other London sides caused shocks across the board as Palace thrashed an inform Leicester and the Hammer’s pounded Stoke. Burnley drew at Brighton, Huddersfield pummeled Watford and United beat The Baggies. Liverpool put on another impressive attacking display – putting four past Bournemouth.
Arsenal and Chelsea squeezed three points from bitter one-nil wins. Everton continued their winning streak against Swansea, that man Wayne Rooney scored again.
Game of the Week: Manchester City 4 Tottenham 1.
Just how good are The Citizens? Really that can be judged by the number of chances they missed against Spurs on Saturday.
The amount they missed whilst still scoring four. Jesus missed a penalty and Lloris had to make seven saves. Sterling himself could have had five after blasting over the bar from inside the box three times.
De Bruyne was once again unspeakably good. He’s more creative then David Fucking Bowie, scoring one, setting up another and winning the penalty.
No one can touch City, no one will and with Sterling scoring twice and Gundogan grabbing a rare goal, it looks like they can also do it without David Silva.
Fuck me, can these lot fly as well?
Losers of the Week: Stoke City.
Old Mark Hughes is living on time borrowed from every bank in the world.
The Potter’s were at home to a Hammer’s side who were enjoying a renaissance under David Moyes. It continued as West Ham thrashed Stoke 3-0.
Stoke were woeful, giving away a cheap penalty, holding a defensive line higher than Snoop Dogg and letting Marko Arnautovic in behind the defence on several occasions.
They are now a point off the drop zone and haven’t won since October. Ouch.
Controversial Calamity: Red mist.
What a game. It’s not a sentence that is synonymous with Watford Huddersfield but it applied after Saturday’s fantastic game.
The Terriers romped to their first away win since August, running out 4-1 winners. Whilst the Yorkshire team looked frightening on the break, it was the two red cards that got people talking.
Neither looked convincing decisions and after both Kane and Alli were kept on the pitch after over the top challenge, the word consistency is being bandied about again.
Mighty Minnows: Crystal Palace.
Woy has got them playing. After their abysmal start to the campaign, The Eagles finally look like the team they threatened to be last year.
Christian Benteke got his first goal of the season, converting a Townshend cross, before setting up Zaha for a thumping finish.
They were strong, clinical and dangerous going forward and made, a recently terrific Leicester City, look bang average.
They are up to fourteenth and out of the drop zone.
