Manchester City returned to their clinical self against Newcastle United on Saturday, with the Citizens finding themselves five goals to the good before the hour-mark.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side’s impressive showing against the Magpies was helped greatly by the performance of Edin Dzeko, who bagged a decent brace whilst outshining his strike partner Sergio Aguero in the process.
Despite the forward’s showing at the weekend, it doesn’t seem to have appeased too many of the Citizen’s faithful, with calls rife around social media for January transfer window signing Wilfried Bony to start against Barcelona tonight.
The former Swansea City man made his Man City debut against Newcastle United, coming off the subs bench, but was unable to make it the perfect start to life in Manchester with a goal.
It would’ve taken a brave man to drop Dzeko after his almost perfect performance on Saturday, however, given the fact Bony was the Premier League’s top scorer in 2014, it seems that Man City fans wouldn’t have minded!
@MCFC Why Bony no playing?

Sooooooo…Bony isn’t playing. Would be even more fuming if I was Jovetic.

How do you not start Wilfred Bony? This is what you brought him in for??

Would have thought this game would have been perfect for Bony if he’s playing 442 / 4411
