Jovetic Stars As City Outclass Liverpool

Matthew Stanger was at the Etihad to watch Stevan Jovetic star in Man City's impressive victory over Liverpool. The striker certainly has a part to play after last season's frustrations...

Its ironic that Skysports correspondent doubted Jovetic's quality yesterday, if he had ever watched the Italian league he will know that City has a gem in that guy.....he is very skilful...

F365, no 16 conclusions?

No. When we are doing a piece from a game it is impossible to do a 16 Conclusions piece, particularly for an evening fixture. They typically consist of between 1500-2000 words, and therefore require some time after the match. This is not afforded when in the stadium, and fails to work well with evening matches anyway. They'll be back this season though, have no fear.

Jovetic was looking good at the end of last season. He gave us something different. He looked classy. His movement with and without the ball is very intelligent. He certainly deserves a good run. @ Harry, Jovetic can pretty much play anywhere across the front line. He would look out if place playing where Silva or Nasri do. He can play in all the formations we use. 442,4231,433. We normally play 2 strikers with Silva and Nasri give licence to roam. Granted not in a top 4 tussle but against 80% of the league we could play 3 of 4. With Jovetic & Sergio's injury record, I think all 4 will be needed.

The problem with Jovetic, is that he surely causes a selection headache. You need to play any player regularly in order to get the best from them, but City can't really get him, Negredo and Aguero into the same side, nevermind Dzeko as well. They're all great players, but one of them is bound to have a stinker of a season, unless Pellegrini comes up with some magic formula to get ALL of them playing for prolonged periods of time, and all of them scoring goals. It's a nice problem, but it's a problem none the less, is it not?

I guess judging Fernando after one glorified friendly probably was a bit too hasty eh Matt? "On this evidence, Fernandinho doesn't need to worry too much about losing his place to big Fernando. The summer signing from Porto retained possession well on his debut, but was caught napping for Arsenal's opener and failed to get a handle on the battle in midfield, picking up a booking for a foul on Jack Wilshere. We don't want to judge him too hastily, but if this doesn't work out we're ready to tar him with the brush marked 'Javi Garcia'."

"That is more than can be said for Angel Di Maria had he seen Manchester United's drab display in their draw with Sunderland on Sunday" - no need for it other than to get comments from Utd fans. Job done. If we were awesome on Sunday then I doubt we'd be needing to bring in a player for that price. But we weren't so we do. As regards the result and performance last night, it just underlines what most suspected - the title will be between city and chelsea this year.

Phenomenal player who's unfortunately made of papier mache. Hopefully for him, Citeh and everyone who likes watching top tops irrespective of which shirt they wear his fitness issues are/were attributable to "still growing into himself" and are behind him. We'll be ok for 4th if we handle the additional games. Big if mind
