Pressure Intensified

Manchester City are adamant in catching up with the leaders, Chelsea, and they will stop at nothing to do so. They viciously defeated Stoke 4-1 in an attempt to close the gap.

Aguero scored the first goal of the match in the 33rd minute. This was his first goal since the 3rd of September! Well it’s good to have him back in full swing.

Crouch soon demolished City’s lead with his equaliser in the 38th. This may have held Manchester City to a draw during the first half, but the second half was a completely different story!


Milner redeemed Man City’s lead in the 55th minute of the game. Aguero then converted a penalty, in the 70th, to claim another goal for his team. He’s back!

The final goal came from Nasri just six minutes later, claiming a grand victory for the Premier League contenders. Shockingly, this was Manchester City’s first League win at Stoke since 1999!

Initially there was the possibility of Manchester City catching up to the leaders. Chelsea were extremely close to a draw today, but luck appeared to be on their side. What a shame for City. Nevertheless, they have put fear into the Blues but they are still playing catch up. Do they have the time and the energy to succeed?
