City 100: That KDB pass...

Ton up! In celebration of our City Centurions' remarkable, record-smashing season, we are running a 100-themed summer feature...

With your help, we fondly recall '100 reasons to smile' from our wonderful 2017/18 campaign, which ended in spectacular fashion as the Blues clinched an unprecedented 100 Premier League points...

79That De Bruyne pass

A total of 892 passes were made by the Blues during the 7-2 demolition of Stoke City at the Etihad Stadium in October, but one stood out more than any other: Kevin de Bruyne’s superb through ball to put Leroy Sane in behind Stoke’s back four.

De Bruyne had the ball on the right, some 40 yards from goal but somehow threaded a low pass that cut out and went in-between five Stoke players, landing perfectly in the path of Sane who made no mistake with a low shot past the keeper.

Sumptuous from the Belgian.

80Get well soon

Amid the on-field celebrations after City were confirmed to be Premier League champions, two fans were pictured holding up a banner that read: ‘Football aside, get well soon Fergie’ in response to the news that ex- Manchester United Manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, had been taken ill.

Sentiments echoed by fans and the Club as the former Reds’ boss continues his recovery.

81Liverpool thrashing

One of the main highlights of what was an incredible, record-breaking season for City came in the fourth game of the season - an emphatic 5-0 victory over Liverpool.

It was a match that had a bit of everything, with Liverpool striker Sadio Mane being sent off after 37 minutes due to a high-footed challenge that left City keeper Ederson with a nasty cut on his face.

The game started off as a relatively even contest, with both sides having chances before Sergio Aguero opened the scoring for the Blues by knocking the ball around Simon Mignolet and slotting home into an open net in the 24th minute of the match.

And then the floodgates opened…

An unmarked Gabriel Jesus headed in from close-range to put City 2-0 in front before half-time, followed by a tap-in courtesy of a Sergio Aguero assist for Brazilian’s second goal of the game.

Sane later added a fourth – then a fifth – as the Blues ran riot,

82Raheem's clever run

Raheem Sterling had been making many dangerous runs from left wing to inside the box during the first 30 minutes of action at St. James’ Park. Many opportunities were created through Sterling’s clever runs, but none were converted… until the 31st minute.

Sprinting into the box from the left wing, no Newcastle defender tracked Sterling’s run. The ball was lofted over the heads of the Newcastle back-line, and City’s number 7 volleyed the ball in the bottom left corner of Rob Elliot’s goal, using the power of the pass to gently guide the ball into the narrow gap between Elliot’s fingertips and the near post.
