Mighty win tonight, both in terms of the title race and our own season. I know I'm going to sound a little bit hyperbolic here, but it had shades of the Nou Camp in 2012 about it. Also something I found interesting is that in 11/12 we ended City's unbeaten run around the same time as we did tonight. After a difficult few weeks, a win like this one will definitely see us get our mojo back. My main concern is that we still look very sloppy in possession at times, but hopefully that's just the final remnants of the players getting used to Sarri's system. Our next five fixtures seem quite winnable on paper, it would be great to see is build on tonight. While I can't speak much for the first half as I didn't watch it, I did watch the second half, and Kanté was immense; he covered every blade of grass on the pitch, while Luiz has answered his critics in style with a performance. Special mentions to Pedro, Dave and Eden, I felt they put in great shifts, looked very composed when being crowded and picked out some lovely passes.
As for the supposed racist abuse of Sterling, obviously, if it is proven true, then that sort of abhorrent behaviour should be severely punished. However, I've watched the clip a few times now, and I'm still unable to see what Ferdinand is referring to; was it a gesture or has someone done a bit of lip reading and came to their own conclusions? Also, I find it hard to believe that the black man standing next to the men who were the supposed perpetrators would look so casual about it if it did happen (unless he went to the Ashley Cole School for Choc Ice).
