Once renowned as a player who might sparkle only intermittently, not only has he been scoring more goals than ever before but they have been important ones too.

Guardiola's side remain unbeaten in all competitions this season and are now eight points clear at the top of the Premier League.

"What impresses the most is the heart with which they play".

Mohamed Salah scored his eleventh and twelfth league goals of the season despite only playing the final twenty-three minutes of Liverpool's trip to Stoke City with the Reds recording a 3-0 win to pile the pressure on Potters boss Mark Hughes. It is brilliant to watch, and that is down to Pep. He is good at what he does, and he is a victor, simple as that.

That being said, Manchester City aren't a one man team, and are certainly showing that their defence is far better than last season, and their attack just can't be stopped.

Former Manchester City defender Danny Mills feels Pep Guardiola's Premier League leaders "almost look unstoppable" at the moment, but he stressed there should be no assumptions they will end up winning the title - particularly with Jose Mourinho in the mix.
