Last week was important for Manchester City following their shock 3-2 loss at Norwich.

The setback led to heavy support for Liverpool FC to pick up the Premier League title, with many using the latest Roulette online offers that are available.

This is little surprise, as Liverpool FC are the only side to take maximum points from their opening six fixtures and have a five point lead at present.

However, Liverpool FC also won their previous six fixtures at the start of last season and failed to land the Premier league title.

Manchester City opened their pursuit of the Champions League last week. They started as favourites to win the competition.

They travelled to Ukraine, in what was expected to be a difficult test for the Premier League champions. However, they completely dominated the game, winning 3-0, with the home side only producing one shot on target over the 90 minutes.

Riyad Mahrez, Ilkay Gundogan and Gabriel Jesus got on the score-sheet in an impressive attacking display.

Manchester City needed to produce a similar performance and get back to winning ways domestically, as they could not drop a further points in the title race.

The Citizens started as the strong favourites against Watford, who came into the fixture following an impressive draw with Arsenal. The Hornets came from 2-0 behind against their London rivals and should have taken the maximum points following a dominating second half performance.

Manchester City produced a breathtaking display to cap off a stunning week for the club and silence the doubters. The Citizens scored five goals in the first 18 minutes, which was yet another reminder as to why they possibly have the most fire power in world football today. This victory was City’s biggest league win since manager Pep Guardiola took charge back in 2016.

The Eastlands outfit also became only the seventh team to win a top flight fixture by an eight goal margin in the modern era.

Bernardo Silva scored his first professional hat-trick in the victory with an endless list of impressive performances from members of the side, including Kevin de Bruyne, who picked up the man of the match award.

He finished the match with a goal and two assists and was faultless throughout with his passing and crossing.

Manchester City will now look to continue this impressive run of performances, with Everton and Wolves to follow a mid-week home tie against Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League.
