What Manchester United fans would do to have a player like Leroy Sane in their side. The German winger doesn’t start anywhere near as much as he should in this Manchester City side, and he failed to be in the eleven yesterday. However, he had an impact off the bench, helping to make the first goal before slamming in the second in City’s 2-0 derby win.

It would be easy to make a case to say that Sane would start for any other club in the world, yet at Manchester City, he often fails to make the grade. The 23-year-old has a wand of a left-foot and some frightening pace and trickery to go with it and again the German was the difference yesterday for his side. If he isn’t given a start next time out against Burnley then something is very wrong.
It’s always going to be hard for someone as talented as Sane at Man City because of the competition he has. On the opposite wing, Raheem Sterling is tearing apart the Premier League and has become one of the best players in the world, yet that shouldn’t stop Sane doing the same thing on his flank, and after his derby heroics a lot of the travelling fans were lauding their impactful sub for winning them the game.

The Citizens absolutely love Sane and will be desperate for him to continue their title charge with a storming performance from the start against Burnley on Sunday.
