Ruben Dias labelled one of the best Man City signings.
Summer signing Ruben Dias had a great impact on his teammates since his arrival from Benfica and can be considered one of Man City’s best-ever signings.
The 23-year old formed a solid partnership with John Stones at the heart of defence and scored more goals than conceded in the games they have started side-by-side.
Robbie Savage compared Dias’ impact to that of Van Dijk’s at Liverpool.

“I think this City team have a chance of a quadruple thanks to their defensive stability,” Savage said on BT Sport.
“Stones and Dias have been remarkable. You look at Liverpool’s title defence, if they have a different centre-back pairing again, that will be 19 different partnerships at the back, which impacts the whole team.
“The stability Man City have got now with that defensive unit and their attacking threat, that, for me, is why they’re on form.”
He added: “I think Dias’ impact is as good as, if not better than, Van Dijk’s instant impact on Liverpool.
“The way he’s made players better around him, look at the full-backs and Cancello’s form.
“Pep’s evolved this side, they were 14th in November and then he changed a little bit with Cancelo going inside in a free role.
“For me, Dias has to be up there with one of the best signings City have ever made.”
