Are We Finally Seeing the Mature Super Mario?

Mario Balotelli is knuckling down to life in the Premier League. How else can you explain two accomplished performances in his two latest outings? Scoring goals has always been easy for the Italian, his attitude has always been questioned. This season, however, he has let his boots do the talking.

With Tevez sulking, Aguero injured and Dzeko returning from international duty, Super Mario made his second successive appearance in Man City colours. He repaid Mancini's faith in him with a goal and looked to be the one player capable of unlocking the Villan defence. If anyone can get the best out of the temperamental Italian, it is his old Inter boss who knows Balotelli better than anyone.

Balotelli have learned from his earlier outbursts and now is contributing to Manchester City's relentless pursuit of the Premier League title. Although City have had fairly easy opposition (apart from Spurs), their attacking play has been breathtaking and the likes of Aguero, Dzeko and Balotelli have to be credited for making the Blues an awesome attacking unit

Roberto Mancini rested some of his bigger names and yet put out a strong team.

Nigel De Jong's hard tackling allowed City to win control of midfield and from then on, there was only one winner. Adam Johnson impressed again as he has done in every game for the Citizens, scoring another excellent goal and assisting on two more. Owen Hargreaves' first Premier League appearance went well, he even made two crunching tackles just to prove that he is fully recovered.

Manchester United had better watch out as the Blues are in confident form and is in a rich vein of form!

Super Mario, it would seem, has grown up this season, right in front of our eyes. It's bloody time he did something meaningful with his God-given talent. A Premier League winner's medal beckons for Man City's cult hero.
