Manchester City’s 2-0 win over Sunderland yesterday took their unbeaten run to nine games and closed the gap on Chelsea back down to eight points.
Pep seems to have found his favoured eleven in recent weeks with a bit of consistency seen amongst the line-ups. Sergio, Sane and Sterling have been absolutely electric and the goals have been pouring in. The defence however still remains a bit of an issue, but a rare clean sheet for Caballero and co. was more than welcome as City saw off a Sunderland side fighting for survival.
Fans were quick to praise the attacking trio on Twitter with Silva and Kolarov also getting a mention. There was also a little disappointment over the dropping of Aleix Garcia and thoughts on a possible audition performance from Pickford.
Here’s what City fans had to say:
Job done! Brilliant @ManCity 💙⚽️

If there are still any doubts about Sergio Aguero's Man City status & future, you're f#$king nuts! Still one of the club's best #MCFC

Despite conceding two, Jordan Pickford has had a decent game, wouldn't mind him at city tbh, great potential #safcvcity

Would love to see Jordan Pickford in a City shirt. Kid's gonna be England's #1 keeper sooner than later.
