Aleksandar Kolarov could be a key player in City's title chase as his famous left foot has proven very fruitful so far for the Blues this campaign.
So much so that he looks to be one of the many blues out there set to redeem themselves this season.
Among others who had disappointing records last season, such as Vincent Kompany and Yaya Toure, Kolarov has been more of a tale of being consistently overlooked in favour of Gael Clichy.

Now the tables have turned in the Serbian's favour and he's repaid that faith shown in him by being a constant menace down City's left flank, especially in his last outing against Chelsea.
There were at least two instances, in the first half alone, where Kolarov whipped in pin point crosses only for Sergio Aguero to arrive late and miss-cue the finish.
Many in the past have criticised the left back's knack of getting forward, but for me, he has to get the nod ahead of Clichy purely for his constant threat out wide. Not to mention, with his free-kick taking ability also, he has far more potential in a City shirt when played every week.
It's not just this season we have memories of Kolarov sprinting down the byline and whipping in a great cross, or striking a venomous ball towards goal, but we've seen it many times in the past few seasons.
Despite occasionally not putting the biggest shift in defensively, Kolarov's threat definitely makes up for this one fatal flaw - and if the Serb is played regularly this season, his partnership with Sterling on the wing could be key to City's title campaign.
