The Citizens are currently leading David Wagner’s side 3-1, but in truth, it could be 20-1.

Sergio Aguero opened the scoring with a stunning chipped effort, however his finish wasn’t even the most impressive thing about the goal.

Ederson, everyone’s favourite outfield player who chucks on a pair of gloves, produced a stunning assist for the first goal of the day.

On that occasion however it was Claudio Bravo pulling the strings and producing the assist.

Ederson has just pulled off an even better pass as City carry on their p*sstaking of other teams.
