Coventry City continued their good start to the season with a 3-0 win over Peterborough on Friday night.
The win means Mark Robins’ side are unbeaten in their last seven games and up to second in the table.
It was a complete performance from the midlands side but despite a convincing win, it took the Sky Blues until the 57th minute to take the lead as Gustavo Hamer fired home the first.
In-form striker Viktor Gyökeres earned the plaudits as he scored his sixth and seventh goals of the season, taking the scoreline to 3-0. That now leaves the Swedish forward with five goals in his last four games.
Gyökeres was certainly one of the stand-out players for the Sky Blues in their 3-0 win. As well as scoring twice, he completed seven dribbles, hit four out of his five shots on target, and had 41 touches of the ball showing he was a constant threat to Peterborough all evening.
And Coventry City fans recognised Gyökeres’s performance as they took to Twitter to praise their star striker.
He may not have been here long but I think it’s time the city of Coventry made plans for a Gyokeres statue

Gyokeres is the best striker I’ve seen play for us, but Hamer can do things with a football that I’ve never seen a coventry player do

Gyokeres at the double, 3-0 win under the lights, second in the league. No better way to start the weekend

This team is special. Viktor Gyokeres is everything you want in a striker and absolutely on fire 🔥. Jamie Allen and Gus Hamer passing through midfield lines at will. Long may it continue.

Surely Gyokeres keeps Ibrahimovic out of the next Sweden squad. 🤣
