Manchester City made it seven wins in a row in all competitions with a 2-0 win against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League.
Goals in the second half from Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling sealed the victory as Pep Guardiola’s side made it two wins from two in Europe.
Many are starting to believe Man City have what it takes to compete with Real Madrid and Barcelona for the trophy and it’s easy to see why.
Sergio Aguero is among the finest strikers in Europe and Gabriel Jesus De Bruyne, Sterling, Leroy Sane and David Silva are also playing at an exceptionally high level.
And a defence that was so often a cause for concern last season has conceded just twice all season.
Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy arrived in the summer to improve the back four but perhaps the most important addition was that of goalkeeper Ederson from Benfica.
Claudio Bravo endured a rocky debut campaign in the Premier League last season yet it was still a bold decision from Guardiola to bring in competition.
But the Man City boss will be glad that he did, for Ederson has produced a string of impressive displays.
Ederson's incredible pass to Aguero
What immediately stands out when watching the 24-year-old is his distribution, an important attribute for any Guardiola ‘keeper to have.
Just watch his exquisite pass to Aguero last night, which left fans on Twitter stunned.
Impressive stuff. Check out the reaction from Man City fans.
Guardiola was pleased with the display
City were stifled in the opening 45 minutes but showed their superiority in the second half, much to the delight of Guardiola.
"We made an extraordinary performance, especially in the second half,” the former Bayern Munich boss said, per Sky Sports.
“They play short passes, they make amazing build-up, they are a machine. They are well organised defensively.
"So, a lot of credit (for) our victory. We faced a team who demand a lot to beat them. It was a big victory for us."
Guardiola gave Shakhtar credit
Napoli, who travel to the Etihad Stadium on October 17, are arguably City’s toughest opponents in Group F.
But Guardiola gave Shakhtar credit after they frustrated his side.
"We didn't concede almost anything but it is a tough, tough, tough team to play, Shakhtar Donetsk, always," he added.
"It is always complicated to play against them, that is why I am so satisfied."
It’s an exciting time to be a Man City supporter.
