There are almost no chances to reach Reds, so most important now is save the 2nd place and take vice-Champions position. During this season they already collected 7 defeats what is a really big amount for such a strong team. However, City already 5th by conceded goals this season, but first by scoring, what shows really aggressive and sometimes more open football but not careful.
De Bruyne is trying to reach a record-breaking amount of successful assists (16), while Aguero scored 16 goals and need 3 more to reach Vardy’s score. In general, squad shows very great football in front, but sometimes weak in the defensive area. During the last games, they won over teams like Leicester, West Ham and over mid teams, unfortunately, failed against Tottenham and twice against constant rivals Red Devils. Even losing against Manchester United in EFL, they won in the aggregate result and reached Final, were won over Aston Villa in dominating the match.
The biggest achievement so far is victory over the Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu in 1/8 Champions League final. Moreover, next game at Etihad Madridistas will play without their leader Sergio Ramos due to red card shown on 86th minute of 1st leg.

Moreover, they have lost to Olympiacos Piraeus in the Europa League after intriguing defeat on extra time, as El Arabi scored a late 120th-minute goal and promoted the club in 1/8 Final. It’s very hard to call this season successful as the squad had changed their head coach in the middle of the season, but their game becoming better and better, so now the main point is to reach Europe zone in Premier League.
The main gun of the tam si Aubameyang which scored already 17 goals and shows very confident form so far. Of course, after such a big break, players could lost their best forms but we hope to see him on fire especially in such an important game.
