Slick City march on
manchester City stretched their lead in the Premier League to a commanding 11 points with a 14th successive league win – a new record for the English top flight – in Sunday’s derby against Manchester United.
Their rowdy celebrations at Old Trafford irked United manager Jose Mourinho, who said City had shown a lack of respect by playing music loudly in their changing room.
But in the hours leading up to their match against Swansea, it was notable in the bowels of the Liberty Stadium that music was once again blaring out as City prepared.
Clearly ignoring any distractions in the build-up, the visitors were immediately into the groove, with the recalled Aguero firing wide and Fernandinho’s crisp low volley well saved by Fabianski.
But the Poland goalkeeper was stranded when an inswinging cross from Bernardo Silva found his namesake David unmarked and unhurried as he nonchalantly back-heeled the ball into the net.
Pep Guardiola’s men had barely broken sweat by the time they doubled their lead, De Bruyne’s whipped free-kick sneaking through a crowd of bodies and beyond an unsighted Fabianski.
Given their 2-0 half-time advantage, City may have been tempted to ease off after the restart but, if anything, they increased the intensity as they continued to drive towards Swansea’s penalty area.
Their dominance owed much to the magic of their captain Silva, who played a deft one-two with Raheem Sterling before artfully lifting the ball over Fabianski for the third goal.
Aguero joined in the fun late on, collecting a pass from Yaya Toure before driving into the Swans’ box and finishing decisively into the bottom corner.
