Man City enjoying best season start in 48 years
Manchester City are in the middle of their best start in the English top flight for 48 years.
It was back in 1961-62 that City last won four times on the trot at the beginning of a campaign. Leicester, Ipswich and Fulham twice were the victims back then and there is a striking similarity to this season with hitman Joe Hayes scoring in each of that quartet of matches, a feat mirrored by Emmanuel Adebayor.
However, City fans should be wary, as the run ended at Maine Road with a defeat to Burnley and the season didn’t finish on a high note with the Les McDowall managed Blues ending the campaign in 12th position.
