Johnny On The Spot:...This was the day when everything went right for Roberto Mancini and his revitalised Manchester City squad who have taken a terrible panning from all angles over the past 14 days...This was the tempo of City performance that saw the team destroy Liverpool and Fulham earlier in the campaign. And it came against a side who have played fully 17 games less than The Blues this season...City played like a team released. Pace and power in attack, robust in midfield and imperious in defence, a clear collective team spirit saw Sunderland reduced to paper kites in a wind tunnel...Mancio will have been delighted with stunning performances from Kompany, Boyata, Toure and De Jong in particular who put in lung bursting shifts...The only blight on the day has to be Mario Balotelli. Why? Because he failed to score a thoroughly deserved goal. But for Mignolet, he'd have bagged two scorchers...Before I wind this section up, a word for Howard Webb. Outside of failing to dismiss the savaged Cattermole, he gave the best performance of any ref at Eastlands this season and that's saying something...So...this one goes out to the people baying for Mourinho and another backroom sea change this summer. For a start, you wouldn't have seen such faith put in young Ryan McGivern and Dedryck Boyata or the fielding of such a generally young City side today by The Special One...City are 3rd in the Premier League, 4th top scorers with 50 goals. The goal difference stands at +23. The Citizens have kept the most clean sheets this season and have a striker battling for the coveted Golden Boot....and the small matter of gunning for Manchester united in the FA Cup semi final is imminent. Sir Alex Ferguson shifted uneasily in his seat at Eastlands and rightly so...The momentum is back City. Bravo and more of the same please Mancio.

Could easily have been 7-0. Great performance from the team, and good management decisions.

That was the City we know and love. Amazing how an international break and finally some rest for our knackered squad, plus replacing Barry with an extra attacking player made us look a lot different.

Back into third, one point ahead of Chelsea but most importantly we're six points ahead of Spurs. Exciting times ahead.

Did not expect two strikers plus the extra attacking MF. So a great result for our top four chances.
