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.

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.

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
