Manchester City has been heavily criticized in recent weeks by both media and fans.

The recent loss against Chelsea and their overall position in the standings was a cause for concern for The Citizens, who hadn’t been able to play their best so far in the season. Many people were even thinking that they might not be able to contend this year. Because of this, the win against Norwich City should be taken as a statement made by Manuel Pellegrini’s men.

Manchester City had their best display of the campaign so far and played one of their best games in recent years, as they defeated The Canaries by an expressive 7-0 score, where players like Yaya Touré and Sergio Agüero shined thanks to their performances. Both the Ivorian and the Argentinean found the back of the net, but they also participated in several offensive chances for their side.

Alvaro Negredo, David Silva, Edin Dzeko and Matija Nastasic were the other players who netted today, but more important than the goals scored, is the overall performance of the team from start to finish. The Citizens were able to control the game since the initial whistle and they left the sensation that they didn’t score more only because they didn’t want to.

A win like this was exactly what Manchester City needed. After the loss against Chelsea and a tough win against Newcastle on the Capital One Cup, The Citizens needed a convincing win ahead of their Champions League match next week, where they will host CSKA Moscow.

A win against the Russian side will put City close to qualifying to the next round, and they need a solid outing before a difficult European clash.
