Ex-Premier League player Joe Cole has talked up Manchester City defender John Stones as a striker after he took his goal well against West Ham United in the league at the weekend. John Stones scored the winning goal for Manchester City as they beat the Hammers 2-1 at home to extend their winning run to 20 victories in all competitions and also move 13 points clear at the summit as far as the Premier League log is concerned.
John Stones didn’t feature in the league game with Wolverhampton Wanderers at home on Tuesday night but Manchester City didn’t have much problems as they dispatched their opponents with three late goals. Manchester City beat Wolves 4-1 to make it 21 wins on the trot in all competitions. Wolves skipper ConorCoady had scored the second half equaliser to cancel out the first half strike courtesy the own goal from Red Devils of Belgium player Leander Dendoncker.
