Pep Guardiola’s men are getting better and better by the game and should be in great shape to take on the Catalans when they meet next month
If this was a game Pep Guardiola was worried about, who knows how far Manchester City could go this season.
With the Catalan’s football taking hold, and Sergio Aguero in this kind of form, anything is possible.
The Blues’ 100 per cent start to the season continues thanks to Aguero’s hat-trick, but while that will grab the headlines it should not be overlooked how the home side completely dominated the match and created a hatful of chances by playing some fine football. Yet again.
Borussia Monchengladbach are one of the few sides in the world with a default set-up that can really cause Guardiola’s approach problems, but they could not get going at the Etihad Stadium.
The German side caused the Catalan plenty of headaches during his time in the Bundesliga: his Bayern Munich side failed to register a victory in their last four meetings, and only took one point off them last season.
