Fresh from our 5-1 win away at Club Brugge on Tuesday, City put another fine display to dismantle Brighton on Saturday 10 years to the day since our famous 6-1 win at Old Trafford.
Bernardo Silva was, again, absolutely magnificent – he ran further than anyone and was so dangerous with his movement, touch and passing – and Phil Foden, as I’ve said a few times on this podcast, is now entering the very top tier of players in world football. He is bona fide world class, he’s a lifelong City fan and he’s been at the club since he was at U9 level. It’s the perfect story.
It was also a day for refection. City fan Guido De Pauw, a member of the Blue Moon Belgium Supporters’ Club, was attacked in Belgium on Tuesday after our win in Brugge. He has been in a coma ever since but is now in a stable condition. The players wore t-shirts to show our support and the travelling fans held aloft a banner. The whole club is rooting for you, Guido, our thoughts very much with you and your family.
In our review of the victory today, we hear from Paul Dickov and Michael Brown, who were with us in the Matchday Live studio, as well as our manager, Pep Guardiola, and midfield maestro Ilkay Gundogan.
