Well unsurprisingly we won again, I mean jeez give these other teams a chance I feel bad for them, joke! Seriously another very pleasing win today against one of the leagues better sides.
Our first goal today was scored by Micah Richards, who had a good game all round. He headed home Gareth Barry's free kick, next to score for city was Craig Bellamy, Micah turning provider for Bellamy to hit home. Then came the sweetest goal, Adebayor heading home from an SWP cross before running the length of the pitch to celebrate in front of the Arsenal fans. It was SWP who wrapped up our scoring with a nice chip over Almunia from close range. *Goals Below*
All in all I think that both teams were actually quite evenly matched today, the main difference was that we put our chances away. We were a bit frustrating at times again today, we just seem to let teams put pressure on us and do not seem to worry when they are. I really wish we would settle on the ball a bit more, I think if we did we would win games more comfortably.
There was some good individual performances today and if it wasn't for Gareth Barry's performance an Nigel De Jong's, then we could have been beat. De Jong got tired in the second half but was superb in the first and as for Barry well he is just simply immense. Both players were carrying SWP and Ireland through the game today, they were both non existent, SWP might have masked his terrible display with his assist and goal but he was far from Premier League standard for most of the game.
Adebayor was also good today as was Bellamy who worked extremely hard down the left hand side. I would also like to mention Wayne Bridge who seems to be consistently getting better and better, his defending and his attacking are miles better than the Bridge we have seen since we brought him in to the club.
Another win and on we go, we should be full of confidence going to Old Trafford.
