It seems a little bit unfair that Manchester City have so many incredible midfield options. Last night they hosted Hoffenheim in their final Champions League group game and even with Kevin de Bruyne, David Silva and Fernandinho injured, they overcame the Germans. Ironically, it was a German of their own who lit up The Etihad in the form of Leroy Sane.
Good, isn’t he?

It truly was a performance to remember from Leroy Sane as the winger bagged his 7th and 8th goals of the season to down Hoffenheim, and he could well have had a hat-trick on the night after he passed up a huge opportunity, squaring for Bernardo Silva as City fluffed a three on one scenario with just the ‘keeper to beat. However, that doesn’t matter now as City got three points, Sane got two goals and the attention now turns to Everton.
Whilst it was a good win against the Bundesliga side, the 2-1 scoreline could well have been a lot more. As well as the previously mentioned three on one scenario, Guardiola’s side also rattled the woodwork twice through headers from Gabriel Jesus and Nicolas Otamendi in the first half, but it seemed like one of those nights where it just had to be Leroy Sane, and the 22-year-old duly delivered, as he has done so many times before in a City shirt.

The Citizens cannot get enough of Sane at the moment and will hope he can be at his very best when they host Everton on Saturday in the Premier League’s early kickoff.
