City 3 - 0 Sunderland

What a result!

I've only seen the goals, but it sounded very satisfactory.

One sign of development from last season is that as this game became a battle, we were willing to compete on those terms. Under Eriksson there were times when a tough game would see us retreat into Arsene Wenger purism - hence the woeful record away from home against bottom half sides.

And as a return for Wright-Phillips it was more than any of us could ever have expected. He's already scored as many Premier League goals as he did in 2006/07 or 2007/08, and two more than he did in 2005/06.

What a week.
