Manchester City spoil Isaac Success’ home party

Isaac Success

Super Eagles forward, Isaac Sucess, must have hoped for at least a share of the spoils when Manchester City came visiting Vicarage Road.

The rampaging reigning champions hadn’t put a foot wrong – unbeaten in the Premier League.

The Hornets, meanwhile, were enduring a rough patch – winless in four succesive league matches.

On Tuesday night, the Nigerian got the opportunity to end his side’s pathetic run at the expense of City’s fine streak.

However, it was the visitors who got things up in fascinating fashion.

Leroy Sane opened the scoring for City shortly before half-time, with Riyad Mahrez doubling their advantage after 51 minutes.

Abdoulaye Doucoure bundled the ball over the line with five minutes remaining to ensure a nervy conclusion for Pep Guardiola’s side.

But the champions held firm to secure their seventh consecutive Premier League win, and put the pressure firmly back on Liverpool, who travel to Burnley on Wednesday.

Success was a menace all through the encounter with the Citizens’ backline struggling to cope with his power and pace.

However, those were insufficient to break the impenetrable City wall.

Next up for the Nigerian is a trip to Everton on Monday.
