Q&D – Manchester City 6-0 Tottenham

How do you put a performance like that into words? Scintillating, breathtaking, magical. City are without a doubt one of European football’s finest teams on home soil, and if that level can be translated to away games, the sky is the limit.

Spurs were made to look second rate by the force of nature known as City, who took only 14 seconds to score when Navas netted a delightful goal. As Fernandinho outclassed two men ahead of him in Scolari’s Brazilian squad, Paulinho and Sandro, City added more and more goals.

Aguero, in the form of his life, added two more to his tally and became the Premier League’s top goal scorer on 10. Nasri was majestic, Negredo was beastly, and Navas took his chance to start and had a fantastic game with two goals and an assist.

That’s now 18 goals in the last 3 home games, and those of us with season cards are getting bang for our buck this season.

  1. wow. that is wonderfull

  2. What a wonderful victory! I believe Pelligrini should rake a lot of credit for the result. He laid a trap and AVB played right into it. We played deeper than normal and sucked Spurs out leaving huge gaps for Sergio and Navas to exploit with their pace.

    Unlike most games this season we had less possession than the opposition. However the speed and skill of the counter attack was carried out to perfection!

    My MOTM would be Fernandinho as he was everywhere stopping spurs and starting most of our attacks, shame about his missed sitter!
