After Man City’s emphatic 4-0 victory away to Watford on Tuesday afternoon, plenty of Sky Blues have flocked to worship defender Joao Cancelo for his shift at left-back – claiming the player was ‘elite‘ in that position and could be a superior option to the likes of Benjamin Mendy and Oleksandr Zinchenko. 

Pep Guardiola’s side bounced back from a disappointing FA Cup semi-final loss to Arsenal at Wembley with an assured display against the relegation scrappers.

Should Cancelo start at left-back against Real Madrid?

Yes, 100%, no brainer

Goals from Raheem Sterling (2), Phil Foden and Aymeric Laporte sealed a much-deserved three points as we now look ahead to the final Premier League game of the season against Norwich at the weekend.

Despite the heroics of Sterling, full-back Cancelo has also attracted huge praise for his performance – especially as the Portuguese international showcased a fine display in the left-back slot.

Indeed, the £80,000-per-week star won an impressive 12/16 ground duels and registered the highest SofaScore rating behind Kevin De Bruyne.

As a result, these Citizens were particularly impressed – find all of their best comments down below.
