Manchester City remain defensively solid

The defensive frailties which troubled Manchester City so much last season have taken a massive turnaround this season. With new recruit Ruben Dias being one of the best players this season, old timers such as John Stones have stepped up dramatically. This has enabled Manchester City to win so many matches with them keeping a clean sheet almost regularly nowadays.

Ilkay Gundogan is a standout performer

Ilkay Gundogan has been a standout performer thi season for Pep Guardiola. The German international has totally revolutionized his game and is the complete package this season. In the absence of Kevin De Bruyne, Gundogan has taken on the mantle to provide the creativity. Scoring two beautiful goals he was unstoppable against Tottenham Hotspur.

Ederson Moares is inhuman

Ederson Moares shouldn’t be just considered a goalkeeper. The Brazilian has more assists from open play than Paul Pogba this season! His passing skills are outrageous and was ok full display this season with a scintillating pass to Gundogan. He also made a brilliant save in the end to debt Gareth Bale and keep the clean sheet intact.
