Sterling puts City on top

Sterling puts City on top

The winger has gone from strength to strength under Pep Guardiola and his eight goals and six assists this term has seen him contribute to more goals than any other player in England's top flight.

Zinchenko was forced off with badly damaged nose, having inadvertently clashed with his captain Fernandinho, while Sterling sought to get City going through a mazy dribble that ended with his deflected shot coming back off the upright.

The England worldwide also has six assists to his name for City in the top flight this term and scored twice in the Three Lions' stunning 3-2 Nations League win over Spain.

They have been able to maintain a remarkable level of consistency, with Guardiola able to bring the best out of those at his disposal.

"Raheem Sterling changed the game and Leroy Sane was fantastic too". I know when I did it I was not happy to have done it.

Below, we present the in-form chart based on performances over the past five Premier League matchdays (with greater weight placed on recent games), your club's top points scorer and the season accumulative chart.

City have lost just twice in the Premier League since the start of the 2017-18 season, and have already played away at three of their top-six rivals this year, with a trip to Chelsea coming on Saturday. Watford were unable to threaten Leicester and their misery was compounded when Etienne Capoue was sent off in second half stoppage time.

Leicester won for just the second time in seven league games as Watford slumped to a 2-0 defeat at the King Power Stadium, with Jamie Vardy and James Maddison scoring for the Foxes. Huddersfield took the lead after 55 seconds, with Mathias Jorgensen heading in from a sliced Bruno clearance.

Crystal Palace earned their first home win of the season as they beat Burnley 2-0 while Brighton fought back to beat 10-man Huddersfield 2-1. Home fans had been planning a protest to walk in after 11 minutes, which is exactly when West Ham took the lead through Javier Hernandez, who slotted home emphatically from Robert Snodgrass' cross.
