    Raz for me. He’s finally starting to convert the many chances he gets! Stones and Otamendi good shouts too

    Surprising what a decent goal keeper and 2 decent full backs can do, to improve the rest of the team around them.
    We are just so much tighter, now certain players can concentrate on their own jobs, rather than babysitting all game.

    If you're talking about improvement from a fairly low starting point, I'd go for Otamendi. With the likes of Sterling and Stones, for example, we knew they had the potential to be very good players. Whereas with Ota, you could never be sure. He had a nasty habit of going to ground too readily, which he's not doing anywhere near as much as he used to. As @prestonibbo_mcfc has alluded to, the importance to his mentality of having a decent keeper behind him cannot be stressed enough. He's a more relaxed player now.

    What about the ball boys? So much quicker now.

    The biggest improvement is that the whole team have stopped diving into tackles in midfield and around the box giving away stupid fouls that we, as fans would say was bias by the ref. Particularly Dave, Sergio, Fernandinho, Kolarov, Otamendi and Zaba were 'over keen'. This season 2 of these players have left and they have worked on swarming players in numbers and blocking to come up with the ball.
    Napoli's 2nd penalty was a case where we reverted to previous desperate measures.

    Individually it's Johnny 5. All that ear bashing from the sidelines last season has paid off and he's currently playing with confidence.

    Aguero, Stones, Sterling and Otamendi have all improved as player whilst several others have remained at a high ceiling. Credit to Fernandinho as well who looks back to his best.

    Whilst many others have improved, think the biggest improvement is Stones.

    Delph. From being a bit of an outcast, he looks like a very classy player this season and has hardly put a foot wrong.
