It has criticised him until no more is needed nor desired, it has doubted of his method, has infravalorado his style… but Pep Guardiola is showing in his second campaign in the Manchester City of what is able. The 'citizens' play to another football. Anybody in England deploys such offensive arsenal. In a football of gone and come, Pep has implemented the touch like lethal weapon.

The City won this Saturday 7-2 to the Stoke City in a party that will take in forgetting the English fans. By moments, a football that remembered to the of the Barcelona of does years -saving the distances, of course-. Constant associations, freedom of movements, high pressure and verticality. The perfection is not too far of the seen today in the Etihad -another thing is the defence, where himself there is margin of improvement-.

With these seven goals the ones of Guardiola are leaders in solitary in England, having annotated 29 goals -those that more in all Europe- and promediando a 65 percent of possession. Any team in the continent is with these guarismos in these moments. And this that for example, Agüero, is lesionado.

But the City has a gentleman instrument to litigate by everything. Gabriel Jesús grows split after party, Of Bruyne understands increasingly his role and Silva is the perfect link so that the attack was impredecible. Mark seven goals in the Premier is not simple and sample perfectly the level of the blues to day of today. Neither the United neither Chelsea are exhibiting such regularity and superiority in front of his opponents.

Guardiola, careful

The ex Barcelona technician, conscious of cuán difficult and long are the seasons, has ensured in press conference that is satisfied, but that has to go to more: 'I Think that in defence give some unnecessary grantings and that in the Champions can leave us was. It likes me that the offensive concepts every time are more assimilated, this will do us stronger'.

If we look the start of season to European level, the City of Pep is one of the teams, beside the PSG of Neymar, that posit like firm candidates to win the Champions League. Has sufficient osiers to try it, although as he same recognises, in defence the margin of improvement is notorious.
