Time was always on John Stones’ side when he made the leap from Everton to Manchester City.

The England international was just 22 when the Blues identified him as a centre back who would be a perfect fit for Pep Guardiola – and the incoming coach gave him the seal of approval.

That would put Stones’ England place for Euro 2020 under threat – and that has sparked the stories that the 24-year-old is seeking a loan move to Arsenal in this transfer window.

In that second season, as City soared to 100 points, Stones performed well enough but it was noticeable that Guardiola turned to Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi to ensure the Blues got over the line.

“But he also recognises how important it is for him to win his challenges, win his physical battles, and he has improved a lot in that.

When he steers clear of the injuries which have interrupted this season, and the 2017-18 campaign, and when he is high on confidence and firing, Stones looks like a £47million signing.

With his cultured right foot, and the balance provided by the left foot of Aleks Kolarov, and later Aymeric Laporte, City could pen teams in by keeping the ball, and stretch them with raking long passes to eager, touchline-hugging wide men.
