Manchester City beat West Brom, puts the direct and is leader

Mahrez, Cancelo, Sterling and a double by Gündogan gave the victory to Guardiola's men. The 'citizens' add 11 consecutive victories among all the competitions.


Manchester City has already put the direct. And apparently in previous years when this has happened, no team is able to keep up. The strongest march of the 'citizens' is an unstoppable march, even more so seeing that Liverpool is not able to maintain those numbers. Pep Guardiola's men already have 11 consecutive victories among all competitions and a total of 18 games without losing. And above all, they are leaders of the Premier League with 41 points and the same matches as all their rivals.

The overwhelming victory against West Brom (0-5) was certified in the first half where there was only one color. A goal from Mahrez, one from Cancelo and two from Gündogan, who already has seven in the league and is the top scorer for the 'citizens', an unexpected scoring breakthrough. The German midfielder is not playing closer to the area than ever, because he continues to start from the position of '8' as he always has, but rather that he reaches the area with each play. And when the ball falls on his feet he is showing that he sees the goal bigger than anyone. In addition, the ease with which Cancelo is generating chances, as well as his guaranteed presence in three quarters to combine, make this Manchester City an irrepressible offensive mix for teams trying to defend themselves in their half of the field. In the second half, already 0-4 on the scoreboard, Sterling made his and settled the 'baggies'.

West Brom had no choice. Their only danger came in the first two minutes of the game, in two set pieces, and then they sank little by little to continue confirming themselves as one of the favorites for relegation. Sam Allardyce's are penultimate and five points from salvation.
