Manchester City are top of the league after winning three straight games to start the season. The Citizens went to Goodison Park on Sunday and beat Everton 2-0.
City has showed their strength in the opening of the Premier League season. First they took a comfortable 3-0 win over West Bromwich Albion on Opening Day, then they dominated reigning champions Chelsea in another 3-0 win at home at the Etihad Stadium.
They followed that up with a trip to Goodison Park in Liverpool and a meeting with Everton. It was a pretty one-sided affair and City fully deserved the 2-0 win. They created loads of chances and had 10 shots on target. Aleksandar Kolarov has started the season well and the 29-year-old Serbian opened up the scoring in the 60th minute after beating Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard from a very tight angle on the left side.
City kept control of the game after the goal and Samir Nasri, who had replaced Raheem Sterling in the 76th minute, scored to make it 2-0 in the 88th minute with a beautiful chip over Howard. Yaya Toure provided the assist and had another solid game in midfield. Toure and captain Vincent Kompany look rejuvenated and have been two of the best players for City so far this season. Both players were heavily questioned last year after some less than stellar performances.
City has not only been impressive going forward, scoring eight goals in three games. The team still hasn’t conceded a goal and will look to keep the train rolling against newcomers Watford next weekend.
