Manchester Clubs Setting The Pace!

It was another great night of English Premier League action last night, and once again as Victor Chandler predicted, both Manchester clubs put in convincing performances to maintain their lead at the top of the table.

Manchester City are top of the league and were once again totally dominant against a Stoke side who went to the Etihad Stadium purely to defend and were never in any position to cause a vc bet upset. They set themselves up with a 6 man defense from start to finish and Manchester City had a very easy night. They had possession for most of the game, weren't caused any problems by the Stoke attack and cut through the defense on numerous occasions.

Sergio Aguero scored two goals while Adam Johnson also got on the score sheet in a fantastic performance as he tries to cement his place in the Manchester City line up. He certainly did himself a few favors and it will give Mancini something to think about in the next game. On the whole, Manchester City look very very strong, and will go into Christmas at the top of the table which is often a good sign for those that have previously gone on to win the league in a similar position.

Manchester United kept up the pressure however with a 5 star performance at Fulham. It took them just 5 minutes before Danny Wellbeck put them one nil up, and goals from Nani and Ryan Giggs gave them a 3-0 lead at half time. It was all United in the second half too as Rooney and Berbatov added late goals to take it to 5-0.

Manchester United are looking like they are getting their form back after some unconvincing displays earlier in the season. Fortunately for them, they have still managed to pick up wins despite not playing well which is a true trait of champions.

There isn't any doubt that Sir Alex Fergusons men will be right behind City all the way, but they will be hoping that the Blue Side of Manchester slips up some time soon, but right now it doesn't look like happening.
