City Captain Carlos Tevez is tantalisingly close to capping another tremendous season leading The Citizens attack. Can he win The Golden Boot at Bolton on Sunday...?
The statistics continue to pile up in the mercurial Argentinian's favour at Manchester City. He has thumped 20 Premier League this season, 24 in all competitions.
With one game to go, he now finds himself level in the running for the coveted Premier League Golden Boot with lesser opposition goal specialist, the rags Dimitar Berbaflop. The Dracula lookalike will almost certainly leave the swamp this summer.
Tevez's City career has been spectacular up to now. He has racked up 53 goals in 77 League and Cup starts and without a doubt he has spearheaded City's transformation from Europa League qualifiers to Top Three Champions League contenders.
El Apache is the VMC Forum's Man of The Match against The Potters.
Meanwhile, the plaudits are still rolling in over City's steamrollering of Stoke last night. As the team continues to demonstrate it's evident power, the likes of Joleon Lescott, Micah Richards, Vincent Kompany and Nigel De Jong continue to push the side on.
