Manchester City supporters will never find a season as satisfying as the current campaign.
Pep Guardiola’s side needed to come big after a demanding midweek trip to Napoli, in which they beat the Italians 4-2 to qualify for the last-16 of the Champions League with two games to spare.
And come they did, as they shrugged off Arsenal with a 3-1 win at the Etihad on Sunday to register their ninth consecutive League win since drawing against Everton on the opening day of the season.
The result from the Stamford Bridge bout between Chelsea and Manchester United fell for them, further stretching their lead at the helm of the Premier League to eight points.
The Citizens have been unstoppable since the beginning of the season, upholding the immutable truth that they are champions in waiting.
Manchester United were expected to offer beguiling subplots in the chase for the Premier League title with their exceptional form at the start of the season, but their purple patch soon faded after injury hampered Jose Mourinho’s camp.
Guardiola, at the earliest opportunity, took advantage of United’s dip in results by upholding his sides’ rich vein of form; one that has created a recurring theme that City deserve to dethrone Chelsea of the Premier League crown.
With fifteen wins on the bounce in all competitions and increasing talks of going the course of the entire season unbeaten, City have thus far deserved every credit sent their way.
Big match winners
What verily adds to Manchester City’s credibility as probable champions of English football is the fact that they have, without glitches, disposed off other title contenders.
Although they are yet to play United and Tottenham, City have thrashed Liverpool 5-0, cordoned off Chelsea by a solitary goal and recently, convincingly, beat Arsenal.
The Citizens have been running amok in the Premier League and the commanding lead is reason enough to believe they deserve to win the title this season.
