Manchester City are dominating the Premier League this season. Although they have the same amount of points as their rivals Manchester United, they’ve scored twenty-one goals in six matches whilst only conceding two. Their combination of youth and experience has been resulting in thrashing score lines. Brazilian forward, Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sané are two specific examples of young players making names for themselves alongside the prolific Sergio Aguero by scoring goals that are nothing short of spectacular. Manchester City fans will agree, these two are a joy to watch. They still have a lot to learn but they’re having fun and creating opportunities for results that can ultimately win the league. Needless to say Manchester City tickets are high in demand right now but you can safely secure yours here at Football Ticket Pad.

Some young players at Manchester City aren’t just loved for what they do on the pitch. Benjamin Mendy is an example of this. His comical antics on Twitter places him on the timelines of thousands of Citizens each day. He’s known for knowing when to have a laugh with his teammates and has quickly become a cult hero in the North West city of Manchester. During Manchester City’s 5-0 victory over Crystal Palace, the French left back limped off the pitch after earning a booking with City boss Pep Guardiola insisting that the injury wasn’t too serious.

However, it has recently come to light that the 23 year-old Frenchman has flown to Barcelona to visit a surgeon named Dr Ramon Cugat who will assess the damage caused to his knee as City are left to sweat on the condition of their £52 million man. Another summer recruit, Danilo, replaced Mendy in the Champions League fixture against Shakhtar Donetsk which City won 2-0 and looks likely to fill the void on the left side of defence in Mendy's absence.

Overall, the team is still in good spirits and will be looking to annihilate any opponent they face, Pep just views the injuries Mendy has obtained a ‘major setback’. Every cloud has a silver lining and with Mendy’s absence comes the presence of Danilo. Both full-backs are young and relatively new arrivals to Manchester City so they’ll both be looking to prove their worth to the club and supporters by contributing to the already very strong defence. Regardless of which left back starts the game, Pep Guardiola has two fantastic players ready to step in for one another at any time. This combined with the efforts from the rest of the team is causing the Citizens to create some of the most entertaining football this season. Even though there’s a chance that Mendy won’t be playing football whilst he awaits the news on his knee. He will more than likely continue to gain support and love from the Manchester City fans through his entertaining anecdotes on social media.
