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.
