Manchester City was able to achieve their eleventh successive win in all competitions by scoring at home more effectively than they shined against Burnley 3-0 and separated to find themselves at the top of the Premier League standings.
Nothing seems to stop the team under the command of Pep Guardiola, who is destroying any team that comes to the front. In the Champions League, it was Napoli, which led the Serie A but was defeated 2-1, but before that, there were many other teams: Stoke 7-2, Chelsea 0-1, Shakhtar 2-0, Crystal Palace 5-0, West Brom 1-2, Watford 0-6, Feyenoord 0-4, Liverpool 5-0.
Manchester City seemed to point subtly to the continental malaise and suffered more than it was looking forward to a humble Burnley, club which, at the moment, has made the “big” teams suffer.
Against all prediction, the disciples of Sean Dyche, faithful to their game of resistant defense, long ball and counterattack, attacked the court of Chelsea 2-3 and Everton 0-1 and drew ties in the house of Tottenham 1-1 and Liverpool 1-1.
In the Etihad Stadium, the team under the command of Guardiola, which made two changes in the “eleven” Agüero, completely recovered from a broken rib, entering by Gabriel Jesus, while Sterling left his position to occupy Bernardo Silva, cutting more than what was expected, and it was not until the 30 minutes that he found opening the score in favor of an indisputable penalty that transformed the “Kun.”
With that score, the Argentine top managed to equal the ranking of major gunners in City history to the historic English striker Eric Brook, with 177 apiece.
In the second half, under the unstoppable rain that was falling on Manchester, the Blues doubled their lead thanks to a header from another Argentine player, Nico Otamendi, to pass Sané in the 73rd minute.
Sané himself was in charge of securing the score just two minutes later, after receiving a good ball from Kevin De Bruyne, eminent one more day, and shake out the goalkeeper Pope.
This victory, together with the surprise defeat of Manchester United at the home of newly promoted Huddersfield Town 2-1, leaving Guardiola’s club is still the leader of the Premier League.

Manchester City: Edinson; Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Delph; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, D. Silva; B. Silva; Aguero, Sané.
Burnley: Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Ward; Cork, Defour; Brady, Hendrick, Arfield; Wood.
