MANCHESTER CITY’S highly-paid stars are proving good for their worth following their record-breaking win against Borussia Monchengladbach.
The Citizens beat the German outfit 2-0 on Wednesday night in their Champions League Round of 16 first leg to make it 19 consecutive victories in all competitions.
In doing so, Pep Guardiola’s side set a new English record for consecutive away wins after cruising to 12 straight victories in a row.
City – who are unbeaten in their last 26 matches – have scored 61 goals and conceded just seven times since losing to Tottenham in November.
A key player for them during this period has been Kevin De Bruyne, who is the club’s top earner as he pockets £350,000-a-week at the Etihad, according to Spotrac.
Despite missing eight games through injury this season, the Belgian playmaker has chipped in with three goals and 15 assists in 25 games.
City’s second highest earner Raheem Sterling (£300k) has been an ever-present figure during the incredible run, with the winger involved in 23 goals this term.
The Premier League leaders have had to play the majority of their season without talisman Sergio Aguero, who rakes in £230k-per-week.
In total, City have 12 players on their books who are earning at least £100,000-a-week.
Fernandinho and Bernardo Silva both earn £150,000-a-week, followed by their player of the year so far Ilkay Gundogan (£140k) and Rodri (£121k).

Aymeric Laporte and Riyah Mahrez both pocket £120k-per-week, ahead of Ruben Dias (£115k), Kyle Walker (£110k) and John Stones (£100k).
Surprisingly, star goalkeeper Ederson is on a modest £67k-a-week, while right-back Joao Cancelo is on £80k.
Despite being instrumental for City this term, Phil Foden boasts one of the lowest salaries in the squad, as he earns just £30,000-a-week.
Though it was rumoured earlier in the season that City were prepared to quintuple his wages following his impressive campaign.
