Manager Pep Guardiola prides himself on his sides’ precise control of possession.
With that in mind, who are the pass masters in the City ranks so far this season?
Most passes made - City's top five:
Aleks Kolarov 404
John Stones 381
David Silva 371
Nicolas Otamendi 359
City's ability to play the ball out from the back is borne out by the fact three defenders make the top five, with Fernandinho performing a crucial pivot role at the base of the midfield. The Brazilian is also helped by playing every Premier League minute so far.
When it comes to through balls, Silva is top of the City ranks with nine, second only to Alexis Sanchez (13) in the Premier League.
Kevin De Bruyne – our assist leader – ranks highly in this category as you might expect with five.
De Bruyne tops the City crossing charts with 37, which places him 11th highest in the league.
Goalkeeper Claudio Bravo has made 185 passes - at an average of 46 passes per game – which puts him fourth in the league in his position despite only four appearances made.
