Manchester City 7-2 Stoke City - is there anyone who can stop the Citizens?

Eight games into the 2017/18 season and City are already starting to run away with the title, having won seven and scored 29 goals in the process.

Defensively they've been outstanding, too. Pep Guardiola's men have conceded only four goals - two of which against Stoke - and boast a goal difference of +25 as a result.

Asked after the game what's changed, Guardiola said they now believe they can score goals in every game they play, whereas last season there was a sense of uncertainty.

"Last season we had that feeling we weren't going to score a goal but now we've got it," he said. "We have the feeling that, if we arrive, we will score a goal.

"Of course it's so important. We play to score goals. Ever since I arrived we have wanted to make our game. We want to do our game.

"We are almost the same guys as last season but now we have the feeling we are going to score a goal. Don't ask me why, because the principles, as I have repeated many times, are the same.

"We have to increase the little details, to do things quick and simple. With that rhythm, we create more chances and goals."

Belief isn't the only reason behind City's form, of course. As a group of players they look more united than last season.

Manchester City v Stoke City - Premier League

Spirits are high at the Etihad Stadium and now tunnel cam footage has emerged from the Stoke game showing just how happy they all are to be playing together.

In the video below from 11:16 onwards, Guardiola runs through the tunnel and high fives a colleague before fist pumping the air.

David Silva, Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling all look absolutely buzzing as well, with Sterling producing a particularly funny reaction.

As he walks up the stairs, he turns to the mirror and starts celebrating with himself. Check it out.


Talk about that winning feeling. If City keep up their current form they're going to absolutely breeze the Premier League this season.

Manchester United could yet have something to say about that, but they showed against Liverpool that they lack the same ruthless streak as their city rivals.
