Sporting KC right at home with Revs
Diego Rubio scored twice to help Sporting Kansas City beat the Revolution, 3-1, last night in Kansas City, Kan.
Sporting KC (11-6-11) stretched its clubrecord home unbeaten streak to 23 games.
The Revs (10-14-5) have lost two straight, including 7-0 against Atlanta on Wednesday night.
Teal Bunbury scored in the fourth minute for the Revolution, but they lost the early momentum when Krisztian Nemeth threw a high elbow at Graham Zusi in the 11th minute. After video replay, Nemeth was ejected and Revs finished with 10 players.
Gerso Fernandes scored in the 16th minute for Sporting KC. Rubio slid a shot behind keeper Brad Knighton just before half to make it 2-1. Benny Feilhaber bounced a shot off the left post and Rubio tapped in the rebound in the 57th minute.
City stars to impress
Although it’s taken a year longer than many expected, Manchester City is finally beginning to resemble a Pep Guardiola-coached team.
City remained in rampant form as it ended Watford’s unbeaten start to the EPL with a resounding 6-0 victory at Vicarage Road.
Guardiola’s side has scored 15 goals in three matches since the international break, following 5-0 and 4-0 wins over Liverpool and Feyernood respectively.
City stuttered to a thirdplace finish in Guardiola’s debut season.
Sergio Aguero scored a predatory hat trick and laid on an assist for Gabriel Jesus, while Nicolas Otamendi headed in, and Raheem Sterling added a late penalty.
The win took City to the top of the table, but Manchester United can join it today with a win.
