#Manchester City keeps demonstrating its power this season, winning games every week even when the rival park the bus in front of their nets –which happens very often, to be honest. Pep Guardiola has made this team one of the most reliable, not only in England but overseas, as the Citizens have done nothing but thrive in Champions League so far. On Wednesday they faced Southampton in a game that was very dramatic for many people inside and outside the pitch.

Only Raheem Sterling could unlock the score and give Pep and his boys the wished-for victory against the Saints. Virgil van Dijk sliced a free kick from Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne to open up the score and give City the initial advantage of the game; eventually, Oriol Romeu tied the game later on before Raheem Sterling snatched the last-gasp winner for the joy of the fans at the City of Manchester Stadium.

With this result, Manchester remains undefeated after 14 games, only missing points at home in the second round of competition against Everton (1-1). City has drifted away from their biggest rival and neighbours, Manchester United by eight points, having 40 against the 32 of Man. Utd. This squad appears to be having the best season in recent years, displaying a good style of playing and winning games no matter the rival or the development of the game.

Do you remember Jose Mourinho’s second seasons? Well, now it’s time for Pep Guardiola’s first seasons, as although the Spaniard boss didn’t have the most desirable tenure with Bayern a couple of seasons ago, now he seems to be the perfect fit for Manchester City, making Citizens the arguably best team in the entire continent.

Chelsea and Arsenal keep chasing

Meanwhile, City was struggling against the Saints, both Chelsea and Arsenal played their respective games, with very different developments and final results.

Chelsea defeated Swansea at Stamford Bridge with a lonely goal by Rüdiger and Arsenal smashed Huddersfield to 5-0 at Emirates Stadium with a great performance by Olivier Giroud.

Chelsea ranks now as third in the League, with Arsenal following their steps very closely. Both Antonio Conte and Arsene Wenger’s teams haven’t had the best season, as they stumbled at some point during this term, facilitating the competition to both Manchester United and City. Chelsea tied the game against Liverpool last weekend and needed this victory to get things back on track while Arsenal landed in this matchday inspired after three consecutive wins –including the London derby- following a hurtful loss against the leader of the table.

Liverpool sees the light at the end of the tunnel

The Merseyside Reds climb to the fifth position on the #Leaderboard after beating Stoke City by 3-0 after two consecutive draws against Sevilla and Chelsea. Sadio Mané opened up the score and as usual, Mohammed Salah displayed the best of his game to help Jurgen Klopp’s team to take the victory at Britannia Stadium.
