Manager left blown away by just how good 25-year-old Man City player was against Burnley

“Spectacular.” 💣

Neil Lennon has heaped praise on Manchester City midfielder Matheus Nunes with praise after his impressive showing against Burnley.

A brilliant brace from Julian Alvarez followed up by a stunner from Rodri meant Ameen Al-Dakhil’s late strike was nothing but a consolation goal for Vincent Kompany’s side.

One player who had a game to remember was Matheus Nunes.

After the contest, Robbie Savage noted that the Portuguese international’s ability to run beyond defences is a trait that Ilkay Gundogan also shared.

The 25-year-old was in terrific touch, as he dismantled the Clarets’ high-press by turning out of pressure repeatedly as he went on to run at the visitors’ defence while also making intelligent runs beyond their backlime on the left-hand side.

The former Wolves talisman’s astute runs in behind the opposition defence led to him testing James Trafford in the first-half with a dangerous attempt as he cut inside from the left wing.

“They were a joy to watch. I really enjoyed the boys coming into the team. I thought [Matheus] Nunes was spectacular for long periods of the game”, he said on Manchester City’s official full-time show (via YouTube).

Matheus Nunes was virtually unstoppable

Neil Lennon is spot on as Matheus Nunes really was one of the standout performers for Manchester City as they breezed past Burnley.

Even when the opposition defenders tried to hack Nunes down when he turned past them, he showcased why he is simply an extremely powerful runner, which allowed him to escape the pressure and let City advance up the pitch.

Nunes’ dribbling was a sight to behold while defensively as well, the ex-Sporting CP midfielder helped the Sky Blues regain possession on multiple occasions as he triumphed in several of his duels.

All in all, Matheus Nunes was a treat to witness with and without the ball at his feet.
