You can watch the extended highlights at mcfc, although there is currently an issue with signing in to watch it!
By all accounts Villa were extremely poor and will no doubt soon be a championship side.
It took Kelechi just 4 minutes of the match to score his 1st scoring a proper poachers goal, the kid has a natural instinct to know where to be. A corner from delph, flicked on by sagna to, fernando's headed shot cleared off the line only for Kelechi to pounce.
that was it then, Villa would always struggle from now on. But even so, It was good to hear that Sagna despite not really having the toughest of opponents did a great job at Center Back, and yet again, a team without Yaya bossed and controlled the midfield with energy.
the 2nd came from a pass by Fernandinho to Navas, who passed into box for Sterling to run on to, but was pushed over, penalty given. Raheem picked the ball up to take the pen himself, but the Captain for the Day Zabba said Kelechi is taking it... it was then scored with coolness.
2nd half and defending a villa corner, city clearing the ball to a villa player, but a terrible back pass allowed Kelechi, who had sprinted from our box to intercept the ball just inside the villa half, carried on sprinting, one on one with the keeper and he calmly places the ball in the net... Hat Trick...the 3rd player to do so this season, he has now scored 8 goals with only 507 minutes of game time, thats a goal every 63minutes... and becomes the youngest City Player to score a hattrick since Joe Hayes in 1955.
Sterling scored our 4th after a kelechi overhead kick fell for an easy tap in. 4-0
The real bonus of the match was that Bersant Celina came on for Fernandinho and Angelino on for cliche with ten minutes to go, Humphrys also came on for Otamendi to get 5mins in too... thats 4 EDS players finishing the match.
So yesterday was a good day allround.
