Some Manchester City fans on social media have been raving over the performance of Joao Cancelo against Borussia Monchengladbach on Wednesday evening.
To the surprise of absolutely nobody, Man City won again against the Bundesliga outfit, extending their run of wins to an incredible 19 games, and once again, Cancelo was at the centre of everything.
The full-back seemed to cover every single blade of grass, and as ever, he just didn’t put a foot wrong.
The Portuguese star grabbed an assist for City’s first goal, and his performance is best summed up by the fact that he had more touches of the ball than any of Monchengladbach’s players.
Cancelo has moved up a few gears this season and if we’re being honest, he’s a contender for Player of the Season after a string of incredible performances for Pep Guardiola’s side.
A player like this can often go under the radar, but City fans have been more than happy to credit his brilliance on social media.
Here’s what Man City supporters have been saying about Cancelo…
Morning AI. Cancelo is phenomenal yesterday. Just sooo good 💙

I just wanna say that Cancelo is the best fullback in the world. That’s it. Goodnight

Cancelo is the best RB/LB/ attacking midfielder in Europe right now #MCFC

I run out of words to describe Cancelo I really do, what an absolute baller and gotta hand Pep credit too for the way he’s using him in that system.

Cancelo’s balls into the box are something else. Such a fantastic player!
