Pep sees room for im­prove­ment in Ra­heem’s ster­ling dis­play

Irish Examiner - Sport - - SOCCER -

Lost in all the im­pres­sive at­tack­ing per­for­mances be­ing com­piled by Manch­ester City is the fact that their de­fence is also op­er­at­ing at a level rarely be­fore seen in Premier League his­tory. Southamp­ton might have be­come the first English team since the first day of Septem­ber to score against the Blues in any com­pe­ti­tion - but it means City have still only con­ceded four times in their open­ing 11 league games. It leaves the Blues on tar­get to beat the cur­rent best ever de­fen­sive sea­son in Premier League his­tory, the 15 goals con­ceded by Jose Mour­inho’s Chelsea in 2004-05.
