Aston Villa 1-1 Manchester City

But: Bailey (74e) for Aston Villa // Haaland (50e) for City

A game without.

It is impossible to be flamboyant for 38 league games. And that, Manchester City recalled by showing a sad face at Villa Park against Aston Villa (1-1).

This did not prevent Pep Guardiola’s men from controlling the match and creating a few chances, but like a strike from Kyle Walker sent wide, realism was not part of the game ( 5e). Just like the defensive solidity even if Watkins could not take advantage of it (37e). Luckily for City, even when things go wrong, one man continues to feast. Or rather two: Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland. The first delivering a center love for the second who scores his 10e but in six league games (0-1, 50e). The Belgian could even have knocked out the opponent, but his free kick crashed into the crossbar of a stoic Martinez (67e). An action that gives hope to Aston Villa and Ramsey, who takes advantage of an apathetic defense to serve Bailey who shoots Ederson from the penalty spot (1-1, 74e) and allows the Bad guys to get out of the red zone.

And allow Arsenal to remain Premier League leader at the end of the weekend.
