Manchester city"Manchester City" this season looks just impressive. Team Josep Guardiola pretty confidently passed the Christmas marathon, losing points only in the last match before a break from the "Crystal Palace" - a draw 0-0. This draw was interrupted by a brilliant series of victories "townspeople" in the championship, which totaled 18 matches in a row, which is a new record in the English Premier League. To date, "Manchester City" came off the Premier League from the second place by 15 points, so it can afford to switch to the cups.
Last Saturday Guardiola's team took home in the 1/32 finals of the FA Cup "Burnley" and staged another rout on their arena - 4: 1. I must say that in just two home games this season in domestic tournaments, the mankunians scored less than two goals.
In the League Cup, "Manchester City" acted before that almost a reserve team. Nevertheless, the team has already reached the semi-final, although not without difficulty. Two previous rounds, "citizens" were only due to a series of penalties. So the Leicester was away at home and Wolverhampton at home. Started in the League Cup wards Guardiola victory 2: 1 over "West Brom."
Bristol"Bristol" in his division also looks very good. Not so long ago the team was located at the second position in the championship, but a number of failures in the last rounds moved the "robins" to the fourth position. In the championship, "Bristol" lost in the last two rounds of the house "Wolverhampton" 1: 2, and at the exit "Aston Villa" 0: 5. To them also added a guest defeat 0: 3 in the FA Cup of "Watford". The abundance of missed goals in previous meetings makes it possible to guess about the problems in defense at Bristol.
On the way to the semi-final, "Bristol" defeated pretty serious rivals. They started "robins" almost from the start of the tournament and managed to beat Plymouth 5-0, Watford 3-2, Stoke 2-0, Crystal Palace 4-1 and Manchester United 2-1. It should be noted that only a match with "Watford" was held at a party.
