Ilkay Gundogan: Manchester City 'more efficient' in front of goal

The Belgian must have his eyes on the prestigious Ballon d'Or award, which has been dominated by Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi for the last decade.

Chris Wheeler of the Daily Mail writes: "Having done his best to steal the show from Sergio Aguero, it was no surprise that Kevin De Bruyne also tried to steal the match ball from his team-mate at the end of another ruthless display by Manchester City". "It's not one game, it's all the season - every three days - playing that way".

Kevin De Bruyne's teasing low cross was turned home by Raheem Sterling for his 20th goal of the season inside three minutes, but there was a rude awakening for City's record signing Aymeric Laporte on just his second appearance for the club as Jamie Vardy skipped beyond the £57 million defender before his deflected shot found the bottom corner. "He's clinical...especially the third one and fourth one are awesome". Especially one. The way he plays, it's hard to find one [better] in Europe.

You can hear all that, plus plenty more, in the latest podcast. "Without getting to the latter stages, you will not be nominated".

De Bruyne's compatriot, Mousa Dembele, slots in alongside him in the centre of midfield.

Barcelona and Real Madrid are usually the two favorites to win the Champions League but City and Paris Saint-Germain - clubs backed by wealth from the oil-rich Middle East - look ready to usher in a new era.

Tottenham 1-0 Arsenal: Five things we learned
A single headed goal from Harry Kane was enough to edge Tottenham the win over rivals Arsenal in Saturday's North London Derby. We played incredible football, we created a lot of chances. "That is a little bit unfair when you compare us with another".


He said: "The next step forward from last season is to achieve the quarter-finals". "What happens after is an extra".

"We scored six goals last season in the last 16 and we were out because we conceded six".

The first hurdle is this month's Carabao Cup clash against Arsenal and the City chief admits he may have to rotate his players, especially this weekend's four-goal hero Sergio Aguero. I am doing what I have to do. I'm very pleased with the way everything is going for me. "It's something you reflect on after you get something like that".

Both Manchester clubs are reportedly tracking his progress, though United could have the upper hand after Man City's business with Ryad Mahrez, which saw the Algerian hand in a transfer request on Deadline Day in January before City pulled out of the deal, unsettling the player and the team.

"It makes it easier for me, it makes it easier for them".
