Ilkay Gundogan Is The Best Player In The Premier League At The Moment
Ilkay Gundogan churned in another huge performance for Manchester City as they beat Spurs 3-0 at the Etihad Stadium.
The German midfielder scored twice and won a first-half penalty to move Pep Guardiola's side seven points clear at the top of the table.
Gundogan's brace in the second half, with both goals scored with his supposedly weaker left foot, followed up his two strikes in the 4-1 thrashing of Liverpool last week.
His first goal this evening finished off some lovely play from Raheem Sterling, while his second saw him send Davinson Sanchez back to Ajax after a glorious long pass from goalkeeper Ederson.
The former Borussia Dortmund man has now scored 11 Premier League goals this season - including nine in as many games in 2021 - having seriously stepped up to the mark in the absence of talisman Kevin De Bruyne.
In fact, nobody in the whole of Europe has scored more goals than Gundogan so far this year.
The 30-year-old has predominantly played in a deeper, more unassuming role at City and done so with distinction, but there's no denying he's in the form of his life right now.
Twitter was awash with reaction to Gundogan's latest masterclass:

At £21 million, Gundogan has unquestionably been one of the best signings in City's history.
