It seems Manchester City’s home form has been sussed out – all you have to do to beat them at Eastlands is come from North London.
The Citizens’ only two defeats in all competition at there fortress of a home ground have come against Tottenham in the Carling Cup Quarter-Final and now their first home loss in the league to Arsenal, who cruised to a 3-1 win over a City side who lacked any edge up front.
Whereas Arsenal had 11 goals in 8 games Emmanuel Adebayor and the clinical prowess, albeit with a hint of offside, from Eduardo, City struggled with youngster Daniel Sturridge having to hold the front on his own. Despite two goals in his last two appearances for the academy product, manager Sven Goran Eriksson admitted after the game he’s still hopeful on Benjani’s transfer from Portsmouth going ahead despite the transfer window slamming shut for this season – in what surely is the most bizarre January move with the Zimbabwean apparently missing two flights meaning he only arrived 45 minutes before the deadline for his medical.
