Three reasons why Man City are the Prem’s strongest side

Even though they trail the Premier League’s summit by six points and have been in underwhelming for of late, Manchester City’s title rivals have been talking up their credentials. And it’s little wonder why, with the Sky Blues possessing, arguably, the best squad and first XI in the league. Wherever you look, the Etihad Stadium side have depth, strength and passion, and their win at Hull may not have been classy, but it did illustrate why they are the dominant force. These three points back up our statement…

They can win ugly

They say winning when you don’t play well wins titles and illustrates strength, and that is just what City did. After Kompany was sent off it looked like the juggernauts may struggle, but they dug in and secured three points with a numerical disadvantage.

Individual brilliance

Down to 10 men, City needed something special to get their afternoon back on track. Then right on cue, David Silva stepped up with a wonderful curling effort.


Even with Sergio Aguero and Alvaro Negredo not featuring, City can still call upon a top class striker in Edin Dzeko. The Bosnian may not have hit the heights expected of him at the Etihad Stadium, but he can find the net when needed.
