Otamendi In Team Of The Week

Otamendi In Team Of The Week

Man City are represented in the latest Premier League team of the week that has been selected by BBC pundit Garth Crooks.

Actually Garth is now down as a 'Football Analyst' these days, a posh term for a pundit then!

The performance by Nicolas Otamendi in the two-one win against Norwich at the weekend at the Etihad Stadium was enough to earn a place in defence alongside the other, in the opinion of the former Spurs striker anyway, most impressive performers in the topflight over the latest weekend.

I think we'll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance from his early City career, why Crooks, we'll also not argue with it, selected Otamendi as part of his team but explaining his choice he told the BBC.

'What a great header by the Argentine from a corner to set City on their way to another home win. The speed in which Nicolas Otamendi has acclimatised to the rigours of the Premier League and settled into the City set-up has been quite remarkable and a testimony to the lad's ability.

'City will only play 'attractive football' under Manuel Pellegrini's tutelage, and not the uninspiring garbage currently dished out by Manchester United's Louis van Gaal at the moment. You won't get City fans chanting in desperation "attack, attack, attack" under Pellegrini.'

It's always good to see us represented in this way, and well played to Otamendi for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the City win that kept them top of the Premier League!
