The City has a good part of the way done. In the worst case scenario, he will score eight points from United with fifteen to go. Being champion is only a matter of time after the Manchester side beat Aston Villa at home on a night marked by the expulsion of Laporte and of Cash. Foden he again justified his label of indisputable Rodri He appeared in attack with success to sign a triumph that is worth its weight in gold (1-2).
The clash began with a major shock for City, surprised by a bit of McGinn before the half minute was up. An error that cannot be ignored at the gates of the Champions League semi-finals. Watkins He received space and assisted the Scotsman, who finished the play with a cross shot. In three touches Aston Villa undressed Guardiola’s team. In true British style. The anxiety, however, lasted for a sigh. City deployed its arsenal.
Without De Bruyne, no one interprets the score as Foden. Guardiola he has a treasure in his hands. He always knew it because he never let him leave the club, not even on loan. English improves all the plays, responsible for imagining and culminating the tie. Connected with Mahrez, Bernard unfolded him in band and summoned Foden on the penalty spot for 1-1. Too conformist, Aston Villa ended up entrenched, subdued by the insistence of an indomitable City.
He wants to go for the Premier and not wait for him to fall under his own weight. And with that mentality he signed the comeback. Went to fail Emi Martinez, life insurance for an Aston Villa penalized this time for the goalkeeper’s mistake. Miscalculated an exit and advanced Rodri in the header. To the City, however, not everything went smoothly. Stones he was thrown away by a hideous entrance at the knee of Ramsey. Indisputable despite the reaction of Pep.
Good context for Aston Villa to dare to take a step forward. Cash did not let him. Two consecutive errors by the winger showed him the way of Stones: on the street. Without superiority, and with too much space to cover, much of the opportunities of a team that could not take it were ruined. The City kidnapped the ball and gave no option, waiting for mathematics to confirm shortly that it relieves Liverpool on the throne of the Premier.
