Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling ready to continue Manchester City’s good run of form
Sergio Aguero returns to the Manchester City squad following his three match ban for his elbow on Winston Reid.
There were some worried heads when the news was released about him missing the three games but young Nigerian Kelechi Iheanacho has come in and scored in the Manchester derby and against Bournemouth.
It will please Pep Guardiola that if Aguero is out again then he has a solid replacement.
The three games missed saw City beat United 2-1 at Old Trafford, hammer Bournemouth 4-0 and overcome Swansea 2-1 in the EFL cup in Wales.
It means that the Sky Blues are top of the table with 15 points out of 15.
Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling have been excellent this season. The former is looking world class and would get in any side in the world. His pace and cool finishing gave Jose Mourinho’s team lots of headaches and he was too much for Bournemouth.
Guardiola has said that the Belgian is one of the best players he was ever worked with and only number two to Lionel Messi in the world at the moment!
He started his career with Genk where he made 97 league appearances before joining Chelsea – his stay in London wasn’t great! He only made three league appearances and spent most of it out on loan with Werder Bremen. He arrived at City via an incredible 18 months at Wolfsburg.
As for Sterling he looks like the player we saw at Liverpool. He is beating players, getting in crosses that are effective and scoring goals – He has netted three times this season including one against the Cherries in his last game.
City face the Swans again, then Celtic away in the Champions League followed by a trip to London to play Tottenham.
