Holland excited in the stands… Man City, even if Arsenal run away, momentum to chase
Man City swung 4 goals without ‘hat-trick pronoun’ 안전놀이터Haaland.
The 29th round of the Premier League between Manchester City and Liverpool on the 1st (Korean time). As befits a big match called ‘Pepclasico’, the seats at Etihad Stadium were full. Among them, the one that stood out the most was Elling Holland.
Haaland returned to the team after suffering a groin injury during the A-match and unable to play for the Norwegian national team. However, he is still unable to play, so Haaland was removed from the starting list.
Because of this, there was a voice of concern about Manchester City’s performance due to Haaland’s absence before the start of the game. In addition, Manchester City fans were more worried because Liverpool were predicted to start Mohamed Salah. This is because Salah is the ‘Man City Killer’ who has scored goals in all four matches against Man City this season.
Losing at home to Pepclasico would be even more upsetting. The match that started amid the anxiety of Man City fans was ‘as expected’. Salah opened the scoring in the 15th minute.
However, 10 minutes later, Alvarez equalized and brought fans back to smiles. The appearance of Holland jumping high in the audience was also caught on the broadcast screen and became an issue.
Man City, who brought the atmosphere, continued a good flow in the second half. In the first minute of the second half, Kevin De Bruyne’s come-from-behind goal brought the win. Subsequently, Gundoan and Grealish scored additional goals to make it a 4-1 match-up.
Coach Pep Guardiola’s reaction to the goals scored while continuing the championship competition in the big match was also hot.
Meanwhile, Arsenal, who is competing for the league championship, escaped from Man City’s pursuit by winning 4-1 against Leeds United.
However, Man City has played one game less than Arsenal, and the next opponent is Southampton, ‘the bottom of the league’. If the ‘monster’ Haaland returns and scores a lot of goals, they may catch up enough.
A lot of attention is focused on the fierce competition to win the Premier League title.
