Manchester City made an instant return!!

With an easy win over struggling Burnley, Manchester City returned to the top of the Premier League.

Liverpool’s win over Watford earlier in the day had knocked Pep Guardiola’s side off the top of the table for the first time since December 4, but Pep Guardiola’s side reacted in spectacular fashion at Turf Moor.

When Raheem Sterling knocked Rodri’s cross into the path of Kevin de Bruyne, who had time to choose his location and fire into the top of the goal, City took the lead after only five minutes.

Manchester City were in perfect control at this point and could afford to have Sterling,

Jack Grealish, and replacement Gabriel Jesus waste wonderful chances because Burnley never looked like staging a comeback.

After 75 minutes, the home side finally got a shot on target,

when replacement Jay Rodriguez forced a diving save from Ederson,

but they can take few positives from their fourth consecutive defeat other than the fact that

their goal difference was not significantly harmed.

Burnley has remained in the bottom three, while City can go into next Sunday’s top-of-the-table clash with Liverpool knowing that if they avoid defeat,

they will remain in first place.

More goals should have been scored by City.

Watch the awesome win of Manchester City!

City have a busy week ahead of them, with the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday and the arrival of Jurgen Klopp’s in-form Liverpool the following Sunday

– the start of a two-game series against both teams.

Those are the games that will define City’s season,

they needed to focus on this test, which they nearly flawlessly completed.

After Josh Brownhill’s early header flashed wide for the hosts,

De Bruyne’s early strike calmed the anxieties of the travelling fans, and the points were never in doubt after that.
