The Blues have already secured bragging rights over fierce rivals Manchester United and they moved from strength-to-strength at the weekend. There was no signs of hangover for Pep Guardiola&aposs team as City smashed AFC Bournemouth for six in a dominant clash at the Etihad Stadium.
Jeremy Doku was the overwhelming standout star for City as he contributed in five of the goals as the Blues run their opponents ragged. While attention tonight is on the Champions League, MEN Sport has taken a cautionary glance at how their next six matches line-up compared to their rivals for the title this season.
These are the Blues&apos last six Premier League matches before their trip to Saudi Arabia for the Club World Cup. The next three games against Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs will leave an impact on the title race and should show where Guardiola&aposs men are compared to their rivals.
Villa is by no means an easy game after that but City will feel confident of beating Luton and Palace in their final matches before the tournament in the Middle East begins.
