After assembling great teams in recent years and winning a Premier League title in the 2011-12 season, Manchester City decided to make a switch ahead of this season, hiring former Real Madrid and Malaga manager Manuel Pellegrini to replace Roberto Mancini, who left the team last year.
The Chilean tactician has had some ups and downs in his first year at the Etihad Stadium, and it seemed like the team hadn’t been able to put their potential on display in the Premier League after the win against Manchester United, which caused some experts to have some doubts about the true level of this team.
They surely answered those doubts as they defeated Tottenham Hotspur by an expressive 6-0 score.
The six-goal differential is clearly not the real margin between both sides, but it just happened to be one of those days where everything went right for one team and very wrong for the other. The Citizens outplayed the squad managed by Andre Villas-Boas, and the star of the match was no other than Sergio Aguero, who scored a brace.
Pellegrini’s men were absolutely sharp on the attack and very solid defensively as they were in control of the game from start to finish. Manchester City have had some good results against top teams this season and even though they’ve suffered some inconsistencies this year, they will surely contend for the Premier League title if they can replicate this performance several more times throughout the campaign.
