Manchester City once again proved that they have Tottenham‘s number as they absolutely crushed them 5-1 at White Hart Lane. From the goals they scored to the discipline they showed, this team knows how to win big.
Yaya Toure, Sergio Aguero, Jesus Navas, David Silva and Vincent Kompany are the guys that spearhead this team’s performance. They, along with the rest of their teammates, are being led by a Manuel Pellegrini who has truly hit his perfect stride as they have finally gained first place in the Premier League standings.
The team is on a roll in all competition involved with British opposition, so with February’s Champions League Round of 16 clash looming against Barcelona, they will look and hope to keep up that same form against the Catalan giants.
It will not be easy as they play a totally different style of soccer, with the speed being much faster than that of any opponent in England. Therefore, since Pellegrini coached Malaga and Real Madrid in the past, he will have to implement a different type style for those matches.
City unfortunately lost Aguero to injury during today’s game, but if they have him back for the Barca clashes, the team will be ready to go full force. In order to beat one of the best sides in the world, every single player at hand will have to be full of confidence and ready to play. If this happens, the team could at least win the home leg in convincing fashion.
If the team continues to play with this form, they will defeat every team they face with a dominant score line. The bigger teams may give them some trouble, but not enough so that they do not grab all three points.
