Silva-Less Manchester City Continue to set Gold Standard

Raheem Sterling scored twice as Manchester City extended their run of victories in the Pemier League to 16 games with an emphatic 4-1 triumph over Tottenham

Despite the absence of talisman David Silva, who had scored four goals in his past three outings. He missed a league game for the first time this season, but Pep Guardiola’s all-conquering juggernaut rolled on to move 14 points clear of nearest rivals Manchester United at the top of the table.

Ikay 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 time.

The home side could even afford to see substitute Gabriel Jesus miss a penalty before Sterling bagged a brace, taking the England international’s tally for the season to 15.

Christian Eriksen struck a late consolation but Tottenham, who will drop to seventh if Liverpool avoid defeat at Bournemouth on Sunday, were thoroughly outclassed on the road, meaning they have now claimed just one point from their last five away trips from Wembley.
