Manchester City lead Burnley 1-0 heading into the half-time break, with an incredible strike from full-back Danilo breaking the deadlock at Turf Moor.
City have been in full control of the game throughout, almost adding to their lead with an incredibly well-worked team move, with Kevin De Bruyne coming within inches of notching his eighth goal of the season.
Pep Guardiola’s side headed into the clash 15 points clear of second-placed Manchester United, having been totally dominant over the course of the whole season and social media have this afternoon continued to laud their play…

The Brazilian full-back, who has made just 15 appearances for City this season, scored his second goal of the season to hand his side the lead.
A short corner from De Bruyne was played into the path of Bernando Silva who setup Danilo to beautifully curl the ball past Burnley’s Nick Pope.
Man City are the best team in the world and I hate it

Is this city team the best team the league has ever seen?

There has to be no doubt Man City are the best team on the planet right now. Barcelona the only team in similar form right now and still feel City would beat them.

Kevin De Bruyne is the best player in the PL. Hands down. Manchester City is so consistently good it’s almost not fun to watch... almost.

City are definitely one of the best teams in the world right now. World class players, squad depth, and their alternate kit is sick
