City got the better of Chelsea 1-0 away from home at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
Kevin De Bruyne’s goal midway through the second half proved to be the difference between the two sides.
Former Tottenham striker Lineker was following the match, and he has taken to Twitter to give his verdict on City’s performance.
The former Everton and Leicester City striker has summed up the display produced by Pep Guardiola’s side in one word - “outstanding”.
Outstanding performance from @ManCity. Breathtaking as ever going forward, but more solid at the back this season. Only 2 goals conceded.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) September 30, 2017
City deservedly picked up all three points against Antonio Conte’s Chelsea, who won the Premier League title last season.
The win in London on Saturday evening means that City are now at the top of the league table at the moment with 19 points from seven matches, level on points with second-placed Manchester United.
