At the moment Nedum Onuoha claims two goals but Manchester City FC will decide whether Carlos Tevez gets the nod. I have to say it was the latter.

Nigel De Jong came through the game without a yellow and his bookings are wiped clean. He will be available to play against Manchester United next Saturday and beyond.

Excellent performance today. Mancini got us organised and passing the ball very well. Bring on the rags!
Super City Slicker
Superb result lads and just for once the above stats paint a proper picture.
Tudor
Ned has given his first goal to Tev!! So that's 28 goals in 34 starts for El Apache!
Johnny Baguette
Great to see on the bench 6 academy graduates ..... and Santa Cruz

Gareth Barry was immense today and just loses out in my MoTM vote to the superb Nedum Onuoha. If he hasn't made the RB slot his own after today then I'm going to be highly puzzled as to why not. All things told, it's a fantastic time of the season for these players to be hitting top form. 4 points clear, and no more huge goal difference with spuds - We're definitely in the driving seat.

Over the bluemoon 2day.I days gone by we would always tend to stuggle against teams that we should beat comfortably... not today. Great performance following on from last few results.
Belfastblue
And i really thought it was going to be a tight game. The first goal opens the floodgates against teams like this and we capitalised
Once a Blue
On NDJ we dodged a bullet there and its absolutely crucial he is fit
Once a Blue
Oh yeah, too right Bundo 6 graduates. Great performance today, Onouha and Tevez were brilliant but I thought Barry was awesome today. Ran the show. Elated!

4th place is looking good for you guys!

Too early to say LAV - but at least we are in the driving seat.
