Johnny On The Spot: The Blues maintained their breathtaking unbeaten run in London but boy, were they made to battle for their win by a spirited Rangers side who had already dispatched Chelsea in a similarly charged atmosphere...The match was a classic humdinger. In times of not so old, City would have buckled and crashed in flames here, but again, title challenging credentials rose to the surface as Roberto Mancini's uncompromising side battled back repeatedly to seal a win that leaves Manchester's finest a confirmed 5 points clear at the top of the Premier League having scored 39 goals with an amazing goal difference of +29. Nobody can touch City for goals...QPR gave it a right go without a doubt but The Citizens made it hard for themselves at the back with some suicidal aerial defending that badly lacked Vincent Komany's marshalling. So concerned was Mancio in the closing stages that he took off the battling Edin Dzeko and added Kolo Touré to the back line...As we head into a much needed international break and a pause for a breather after this stunning dreamland start to the season, Mancio fielded no less than SIX England players for the watching Fabio Capello to consider tonight. You won't find too many anti-City brigade hacks reporting that fact...Some tough assignments face us later this month and Mancio will be extremely hopeful that all his stars report back fully fit from international duty ready for a potentially season defining run in to the end of 2011...Phew what a game!

At least we avoided the curse of the ex-player today. Wouldn't have begrudged SWP a goal, but the sight of Joey Barton celebrating might just about have eroded the grin I've been wearing ever since the derby win.
