City’s win over Aston Villa takes them a step closer to the Premier League title
Can City lift the Premier League Title before their last game of the league?
Manchester City recorded its 24th Premier League victory in the season against Aston Villa on Wednesday. A series of events made the game extremely watchable. Due to a lack of concentration in the beginning of the game, Guardiola’s men conceded in the first 20 seconds. Ollie Watkins provided an assist as Scott Mcginn scored for the Villa club.
The city’s first goal came from excellent team play. Guinness World Record holder Ederson kicked the ball from his half which covered two-thirds of the pitch and took Villa by surprise. The ball landed directly at Zinchenko’s head. Zinchenko passed the ball to Foden. Foden then found Mahrez in the right who gave the ball to Bernardo Silva. Bernardo kept running inside the box and then provided the ball back to Foden who scored a majestic goal in the 22nd minute equalizing for Manchester City.
In the 40th min after an unsuccessful corner, Bernardo Silva found the gap and provided a cross in the box which was headed into the net by Rodri. City 2, Aston Villa 1. The city came back from behind only to get a further shock just before the 1st half. Stones made a knee-high tackle on the Villa player which ultimately lead him to a red card and City was down to 10 men.
City and Villa made some half-decent chances in the second half but for most of the remaining time, the game was quiet. The only worth mentioning event was Cash’s tackle on Foden which led to his second yellow card and he was out. Aston Villa and Manchester City played with 10 men each for the last 33min.
Pep Guardiola’s latest win takes them 11 points clear of the 2nd positioned Manchester United. City now only needs 8 points to lift the Premier League trophy
