Football review; CHAMPIONS TO BE-MANCHESTER CITY written by Odukoya Adeniyi

There is currently no doubt that Manchester City is the title favourite after defeating all the top four teams in the Barclay premier league. Beating Liverpool first to a devastating five goals to nothing, then they marched on to the current champion Chelsea defeating them also. Due to past records Arsenal,i expected to really pull a surprise against Manchester City but it was just an ordinary illusion that was gifted with a superb defeat.
Then to today's match which has vividly shown who the best team in premier league is. The hype on today's match had it source from diverse angles,the existing long term unhealthy rivalry between the two coaches Pep Guardiola (current Manchester City coach)  and Jose Mourinho (current Manchester United coach), the fact that it was also a Manchester derby that decides the title race was very significant.
Manchester City came into the game sitting comfortable on top of the league table with a whooping 43points,while second place Manchester United have accumulated 35points from as many matches, current defending champions Chelsea hang on the line with 32points having dropped points in a London derby against a weak West Ham side headed by former Manchester United coach David Moyes.
Leading the table with a minimum of eight points is an extraordinary feet, no eyes can deny that this is the Manchester City side we've ever seen in previous seasons. Topping their champions league group to proceed superbly into the round of 16, enjoying 5 wins with one defeat even Lionel Messi tipped them as favourite candidate for the Champions league title in respective of top sides like Bayern Munich, Juventus and defending champions Real Madrid.
Taking a succinct look at Manchester United this season so far, they have not been worse either. Possessing a 40th consecutive win at Old Trafford against cska Moscow in the champions league and now looking to make it a 41st consecutive win at Old Trafford against an attacking minded Manchester City side.
As expected it was an eye opener as Manchester City took the lead by David Silva's goal before an important equaliser from Manchester United wonder kid Marcus Rashford then we had the spectacular goal from Manchester City centre back Nicolas Otamendi giving Manchester City an elaborate 11points lead at the top of the table. This result means that Manchester City have now won 14 consecutive league matches an awesome record.
