Ready to play outfield if required: Manchester City keeper Ederson

The other teams are shoddy, they are just not being consistent - and that is City's key at the moment, consistency. They are playing super football and look very good, their winning streak is superb.

Rooney scored in Everton's 1-1 draw with City in August - the only Premier League game that they have dropped points in - and the former England captain is convinced that Guardiola's side will drop further points over the remainder of the campaign.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks has come in for plenty of criticism following his side's 4-1 hammering at the hands of Manchester City last weekend, but the 21-year-old is only going to become a better player after the humiliating defeat.

Well, seeing their current momentum and the next matches they have, it would be extraordinary watching them lose the run for the title.

The gap at the top of the table was extended to 11 points with a 2-1 victory in the Manchester derby for Manchester City over a week ago, and they maintained that advantage as both sides won the two games that followed. This might sound insane, but the Blues have a really good chance of becoming champions, and to be acknowledged as champions right now.


Manchester City will hold talks with manager Pep Guardiola at the end of the season about extending his three-year deal, British media reported on Sunday. At the moment, City are running away with it. After that, they are going to play with five teams that they already defeated before. Challenged to play the ball long, the front three of Leroy Sane, Sergio Aguero/Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling (with Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne fearlessly showing for the ball themselves) were able to find space beyond Spurs' pressing block, and Ederson picked them out sensationally.

Starting this Wednesday, they are facing Leicester City at King Power Stadium for the EFL Cup quarter-finals.

"One bad result can change the whole complex and these players have to believe they have an outside chance", Yorke explained.

Manchester City is keen to win every competition they're part of and they are very likely to do it.
