Manchester City Premier League title 2018-19

  • Sergio Aguero Manchester City 2018-19

    Sergio Aguero's equaliser was just what the doctor ordered

    Having fallen behind in the 27th minute through a Glen Murray header, the prolific frontman brought Manchester City level moments later, expertly firing a low effort between Mathew Ryan’s legs.

    The goal settled any nerves that would have been growing in the City ranks, and took his Premier League tally for the season to 21, one behind the trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

  • Aymeric Laporte Manchester City 2018-19

    There was no stopping City after Aymeric Laporte's strike

    After equalising through Aguero, the centre-back lost his marker to give the Citizens a 2-1 lead after a Riyad Mahrez corner in the 38th minute.

    From there on out, there was no looking back and the away side went on to score two more goals as the match ended 4-1.

    Defensively, he was solid too, winning four of his five duels and took no chances in his team’s defensive third by clearing the ball from danger when necessary.

  • Riyad Mahrez Manchester City 2018-19

    Fantastic Riyad Mahrez rewarded Pep Guardiola's faith

    There were a few raised eyebrows, as well as complaints when the lineups were released with Mahrez starting.

    The wideman, who hadn’t started a game since the 1-0 defeat by Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League just over a month ago, was on top of his game, assisting Laporte’s strike before showing lovely trickery and amazing composure to score the away side’s third.

    It was no less than the Algerian deserved after a somewhat frustrating season and he’ll aim to be more influential next term.

  • Ilkay Gundogan Manchester City 2018-19

    Ilkay Gundogan was amazing in midfield

    Irrespective of Brighton putting almost every player behind the ball, everything went through the impressive German, who also completed 164 passes over 90 minutes, boasting a 94 percent success rate.

    His brilliant free-kick, which nestled into the corner of the goal, was the icing on the cake for the Citizens and his impressive form in the final months of the campaign made sure Fernandinho wasn’t missed in the City midfield.

  • Pep Guardiola Manchester City 2018-19

    Pep Guardiola’s man-management should be lauded

    The City boss, who’s the first manager to win back-to-back Premier League titles since Sir Alex Ferguson managed in 2007/08 and 2008/09, deserves all the praise for City’s domination of the league.

    Having recorded an unprecedented 100 points last term, they claimed 98 this year and the Spaniard merits all the adulation for his side’s consistency.

    His man-management has been top class too: he instilled belief into youngsters like Phil Foden and Oleksandr Zinchenko to go out and play with confidence, brought Vincent Kompany back into the fold in the season’s closing weeks and made the right call to play Mahrez on the final day, when many questioned the decision pre-match.

    City could go on and on with the unrelenting Guardiola at the helm and it’ll be interesting to see how they fare next season as they look to win three titles on the spin.
