After an unconvincing and somewhat rocky start to the Premier League season it would seem that the ship at the Etihad has finally started to steady under the leadership of Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini.
The club have been enjoying a solid run of form of late and are now beginning to mould the outlook of the Premier League table, it would seem, for the rest of the season. City are picking up points at a rapid pace and after the 1-0 victory against Everton on Saturday evening, the gap between current league leaders Chelsea and themselves have now been reduced to just three points.
City vs Everton
After learning the news that Newcastle United had done the seemingly impossible and put an end to Chelsea’s unprecedented unbeaten run, it was then down to City to bag three points and capitalise on the game they had in front of them.
After just a couple of minutes played at the Etihad things were looking bleak as star frontman and in-form striker Sergio Aguero hobbled off injured with what seemed to be a knock to his knee of some sort.
This can only mean bad news for City fans as Aguero is one of, if not the most prolific finisher in the league at this moment in time and many teams would consider themselves very fortunate to have in their starting XI.
Charging up the league
However, City did manage to pick up the points despite an absent Aguero and now find themselves just three points off of league leaders Chelsea – it would also be important to note that City are on more points at this stage of the season than they were last season, and they still managed to go onto win the league trophy.
It would seem that the table is starting to show its true form now the season has had time to settle in, and it looks like the title will be mostly down to a two horse race between City and Chelsea.
Southampton aren’t far behind in third, however have been on a poor run in recent weeks and desperately need to get something out of Manchester United tonight.
