Dzeko hits four as Manchester City thrash Tottenham

Posted on by SoccerPunter

Edin Dzeko scored four times as Manchester City demolished Tottenham 5-1 at White Hart Lane on Sunday to underline their credentials as serious challengers for the English Premier League title.

Roberto Mancini’s side produced a free-flowing performance that was a stark contrast to their more dour approach last season and champions Manchester United will have taken note as their rivals moved to the top of the premier league table after opening the season with 12 goals in three successive victories.

SoccerPunter Analyst:

Manchester City have made key acquisitions this season in Clichy, Aguero and Nasri. They have improved significantly in every department, namely defense, attack and midfield. We predict that Manchester City will finish top 3 in premier league this season.

Dzeko struck twice in seven minutes before half-time as he converted a cross from debutant Samir Nasri and then looped a header over Brad Friedel after another Nasri delivery unhinged the Spurs defence.

The Bosnian striker completed his treble in the 55th minute when he slammed Yaya Toure’s cross past Friedel.

Sergio Aguero added the fourth – his third City goal following his club record 38 million pounds move from Atletico Madrid – just five minutes later as the Argentina forward twisted past Michael Dawson before firing home.

Younes Kaboul headed home for Spurs in the 68th minute, but the hosts – who started with unsettled Chelsea target Luka Modric – conceded a fifth when Dzeko curled into the top corner in stoppage time and Harry Redknapp’s side sit bottom of the table after losing their opening two league games.

Nasri ended up with three assists, already treble his total from the whole of last season.

“We played a really good game against what is a fantastic team,” Mancini said. “I was always sure Dzeko would score a lot of goals for us, he always scored in Wolfsburg.

“This is a very long season and it’s important that we started well. The next games will be very hard because now everyone thinks we will score three or four goals, but that is impossible.”
