MANCHESTER CITY 4-TOTTENHAN HOTSPUR 1 - WHO CAN END MAN CITY UNBEATEN RUN IN EPL


Manchester City, a giant in the EPL and with a Rossy battle for the title, overcame the absence of David Silva to ease to victory over Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday. Article continues below Raheem Sterling scored twice despite missing some chances as Manchester City extended their record run of victories in the Premier League to 16 games with a convincing 4-1 triumph over Tottenham. Despite the talismanic David Silva, who had scored four goals in his past three outings, missing a league game for the first time this season, Pep Guardiola's all-conquering juggernaut rolled on to move 14 points clear of nearest rivals Manchester United, who are expected to cover up, at the top of the table.

Ilkay Gundogan's free header from a corner gave City an early lead before Kevin de Bruyne doubled their advantage with a left-footed drive 20 minutes from tme. To the home side could even afford to see substitute Gabriel Jesus miss a penalty before Sterling bagged a late brace, taking the England international's tally for the season to 15. Leroy Sané has been involved in 10 goals in eight Premier League home appearance's this season (5 goals, 5 assists); more than any other player.

Christian Eriksen struck at late consolation but Tottenham, who will drop to seventh if Liverpool avoid defeat at Bournemouth(another stubborn side) on Sunday, were thoroughly outclassed on the road, meaning they have not claimed just one point from their last five away trips away from Wembley Stadium. The result sees Guardiola equal the best winning streak he oversaw while in charge of Barcelona, though his current crop are still three shy of matching the 19-game run his Bayern Munich squad managed in the 2013-14 Bundesliga campaign. On this form, it  is hard to see when the run will come to an end. 
    With the top clubs in EPL not able to bring an end to city's unbeaten run, just at the last phase of the first half of the season, many will be expecting a different ball game entirely in the next phase from other top clubes especially Manchester united.
