The Belgian superstar is in the form of his life and would get into any team in the world at present. For an attack-minded player it surely cannot get much better than Pep Guardiola’s new-look City. Top of the table and a whopping 16 goals in their last three Premier League matches — or 22 from five in all competitions if you would rather. Club legend and ambassador Mike Summerbee at the weekend dubbed City “close to perfection”. Liverpool (5-0), Watford (6-0) and now Crystal Palace — thrashed 5-0 at the Etihad on Saturday — can console themselves with the fact that plenty of teams will get a hiding from Guardiola’s men this season. Stoke and Burnley, who visit the Etihad the week after the early October international break, are probably saying their prayers already.
