LONDON. – Manchester City have unlocked a “cheat code” that is destroying Premier League defences.
A simple tactical tweak from manager Pep Guardiola is seeing new signing Jeremy Doku thrive on the left-wing.
The 21-year-old joined from Rennes in a £55million deal in the summer and he is already catching the eye with his stunning performances.
Doku registered four assists and one goal in the 6-1 hammering of Bournemouth on Saturday as he ripped the Cherries to shreds.
It set a new record as he became the league’s youngest player to provide four assists and get five goal contributions in one match.
He has so far made 12 appearances for Man City and admitted he is already finding it “so easy” to create chances for his team-mates.
The winger’s bursts of pace and trickery have been terrorising opponents and Guardiola is getting the best from him.
The gaffer has huge demands when it comes to a winger’s positioning with him wanting them to get one-on-one versus their full-back – and that is where Doku shows his magic. – The Sun
