|Manchester City took care of business on a night when a 22nd league win of their ever-more dazzling campaign took them to 101 goals in all competitions.
Once more Pep Guardiolaâs side dominated, making West Brom appear the Championship team they may become, as they returned home still rooted to the bottom. At the close http://www.officialauthenticbearstore.com/Nike-William-Perry-Jersey.html the City manager was again unhappy at a challenge meted out to one Zack Martin Youth jersey of his players, Brahim DÃaz. Matt Phillips was the offender, catching the Spaniard late and high as the final whistle neared. Kevin De Bruyne had also been caught by James McClean, in the buildup to his goal.
All of this followed Leroy SanÃ© suffering ankle ligament damage thanks to Cardiff Cityâs Ryan Bennett on Saturday. Of the challenge by Phillips, Guardiola, who was visibly unhappy on the touchline, said: âWe spoke with Kevin [Friend], the fourth official. They [match officials] have an opinion, I have another one, theyâre the bosses, I accept that. Today we were lucky, three or four days ago we were unlucky with Leroy [SanÃ©]. The image speaks for itself. I could repeat what I said after the last game but itâs not necessary.â
Yet Alan Pardew pointed to Fernandinho, who may have stamped on Grzegorz Krychowiak in the first half, the Pole having to be replaced. âIt was a poor challenge, make no mistake about that,â said West Bromâs manager of Phillips. âFernandinho made a similar one in the middle of the pitch. Iâm not sure if the referee saw it. I thought Pepâs comments at the weekend affected the crowd. Every challenge they were saying: âYouâre not protecting our players, referee.â There were a few songs sung about him [Robert Madley] but I actually thought he had a decent game. His calls were correct and it was a yellow card for Phillips no doubt. Gregorz struggled after that but I havenât seen it. He didnât think it was particularly great.â
On a frantic day in which City ended their interest in Riyad Mahrez due to Leicesterâs Â£95m valuation, Aymeric Laporte â who on Tuesday became Cityâs Briean Boddy-Calhoun Jersey club record signing â started in central defence alongside NicolÃ¡s Otamendi.
The Frenchman was one of two changes from Cityâs last league outing 11 days ago, along with Bernardo Silva, who came in for SanÃ©. While Laporteâs selection may have been due to a John Stones illness, West Bromâs bench featured Daniel Sturridge, who joined on loan from Liverpool on Tuesday. Pardew made five changes from the previous league fixture.
City were a blue blur throughout, their opener arriving via Fernandinho, who made a schemerâs run to finish a supreme De Bruyne ball. As the interval neared this had become akin to a shooting practice session for the Belgian. One chance featured a one-two with Sergio AgÃ¼ero, then Ben Foster had to fling himself high to keep the deficit at one. The half ended with David Silva having to be replaced by Ilkay GÃ¼ndogan due to what looked like a back problem.
Guardiolaâs instructions to his men for the second half may have been to keep on probing and more goals would surely follow. From the kick-off City were again in Baggies territory, making life uncomfortable for them. GÃ¼ndogan immediately displayed his ability. A shimmy Eric Dickerson Authentic Jersey was followed by a http://www.torontomapleleafsofficialonline.com/Adidas-Darcy-Tucker-Jersey pass to Sterling and, now, City seemed certain to double their lead. Yet after the forward did the hard part â a drag-back that removed a defender from the equation â his dipping effort missed wide to Fosterâs left-hand post.
Now came some of Guardiolaâs particular man-management. After Claudio Yacob felled GÃ¼ndogan, Sterling was frantically waved over by his manager. When the No 7 reached Guardiola he was rewarded with a warm embrace that included a smacker on his cheek, to console him for the miss.
âWhen you ask me what can he improve â it is that [finishing],â said the Catalan. âWhen he can heâll be a top-class player.â De Bruyne did, finally, score in a move he also started, finishing from Sterlingâs pass as McCleanâs challenge brought boos, and he was booked. AgÃ¼ero made it 3-0, moments after the challenge from Phillips on DÃaz, for which he received only a booking. nfl jerseys authentic nhl hockey jerseys nike nfl jerseys size chart wholesale jerseys china cheap nba jerseys
