Edin Džeko’s 66th minute winner against Crystal Palace last Saturday marked a milestone for the player and his club; the strike was the Bosnian’s 50th goal in a City shirt. Since arriving three years ago in the January 2011 transfer window from Wolfsburg, Džeko has been one of those players who frustrates and delights in equal measure. All City fans know what he’s capable of, but the striker rarely appears to fulfil his potential.

They have been scoring for fun, while defeating their close rivals in emphatic fashion. It is fair to say that this was a game between two genuine title contenders.

1)The closest Title race in Premier League history.
Four different teams could technically be top of the league as 2013 walks off into that good night and 2014 dawns. Only eight points separate Arsenal in 1st and Spurs in 8th place, only six between 1st and Newcastle in 6th, and only three from 1st to Liverpool in 4th. This isn’t the first couple of weeks either; this is half way through the season.
