Streaks continue as Manchester City triumphs over West Bromwich Albion

City’s eighth consecutive win was led by Leroy Sane, thanks to whom West Bromwich remain winless for five games in a row.

Joining Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus, the German winger scored his eighth goal of the season to open the game at The Hawthorns. Executing a powerful and precise fifteen yard shot, he shook the net as the ball went past goalkeeper Ben Foster.

West Bromwich didn’t sit idle, though; he didn’t even take a breath before they struck back mere three minutes later, as Gareth Barry set up Jay Rodriguez whose shot went past Enderson and the equalizer was there. The home crowd roared in cheer.

The home crowd was quickly silenced though, as the game was still at full speed and the duo who was responsible for the first goal was back. Sane returned the favour to Fernandinho for his part in the first goal and supplied him. Fernandinho’s drive deflected off a couple of defenders, then hit the foot of the post and tumbled inside the goal.

The Baggies fell back once more after the break and they were punished by Raheem Sterling who had just walked on the pitched three minutes earlier. Sterling scored his ninth goal of the season with the help by none other than Sane, who proved his mettle throughout the whole game.

Right before the end of the game, as City defender Nicolas Otamendi tried to return the ball to his keeper with his chest, Matt Phillips snuck in and scored West Bromwich’s second. There would be no time for the Baggies to find the draw as the game ended just a minute later, which saw Manchester City extend their lead on top of the Premier League table.

The highlight of the match is most definitely the excellent display from the young German Winger. Leroy Sane confirmed the continued rise of form ever since he joined City a year ago. Scoring one goal, assisting another as well as beginning the action for the third, the 21 year old showed everybody watching that he is no longer a support act.
