Sherwood: Man City are on a different planet

Tottenham Head Coach Tim Sherwood has said that Manchester City are ‘on a different planet’ to the rest of the Premier League after seeing them thrash his side 5-1 on Wednesday, writes the Independent.

Sergio Aguero, restored to Man City’s starting line-up in the Premier League, opened the scoring with a neat finish after latching on to a David Silva through ball, giving them the lead in a first half they largely dominated.

After the interval, the game swung dramatically in Man City’s favour as Danny Rose was sent off for a challenge on Edin Dzeko, despite winning the ball from the Bosnian. Yaya Toure confidently converted the resultant penalty, before Dzeko put the game beyond Tottenham with a close range volley.

Stevan Jovetic and Vincent Kompany added further goals for the title hopefuls after Etienne Capoue’s consolation for Spurs, who stay fifth, while Man City go top thanks to Arsenal’s failure to win at Southampton on Tuesday.

Speaking after the game, Sherwood believed that the penalty for the visitors’ second goal should not have been awarded, but was otherwise in awe of Manuel Pellegrini’s team. He said: “It made a difference to the scoreline. They [City] were excellent, weren't they? You have to hold your hands up. Even before the sending off, they worked around the pitch and they come at you from all angles and this team are the best team in the league by a country mile.

“Without question, in my opinion, these are the [future] champions of the league. And unfortunately for everyone they play, they don't just score one and then shut up shop, do they? They keep coming at you and if anyone is going to win the league, you want someone like this team to go on and win it because they entertain, they push on.

“It's not great for an opposition manager, believe me, but they just put you to the sword and that's how football should be played, in my opinion.”

If Sherwood wakes up and picks any day now when they are fit after infury Kaboul, Vertongen, Sandro, Paulinho and Townsend for Dawson, Bentaleb, Siggurson, Rose (suspended) and 1 other we would also be a top side.
