Manchester City Bags the Baggies
Manchester City look to start the new season right where they left off last spring.
Their high-intensity attack pace hasn't faded, and neither have the goals.
The Sky Blues throttled West Bromwich Albion, 0-3, to serve notice that they're a primary factor in 2015-2016's title chase and cup runs.
In this, its Premiership opener, City turned it up to 11 PDQ:
OK, so the ball was a bit shy on the Q, but the P and D had that “Stop me if you can” cheekiness about it. And David Silva's not picky about how he gets onto the score sheet.
That went in like a wrecking ball.
City’s night just kept getting better from there, as they hammered home a third:
That's as good a header that anyone will see in football.
So, Manchester City are firing on all cylinders already.
