Winner at a trot in Wolverhampton, Manchester City regains the lead in the Premier League

The game: 0-3

City enjoyed an idyllic afternoon on the lawn of Wolverhampton, adding an easy success and a provisional first place while waiting for Arsenal’s match at Brentford on Sunday. It only took fifty-five seconds for Pep Guardiola’s players to open the scoring, through Grealish. By closely taking a cross from De Bruyne, nicely launched by a heel from Foden, the former Aston Villa player scored his first goal of the season and stifled some of the criticism that is targeting him at the moment (1- 0, 1st).

Armed with the best defense before this day, the Wolves had to tell themselves with annoyance that their safe was not going to resist their opponents for too long. Haaland, on his third ball, took it upon himself to pierce it a little more by easily fixing Kilman before sending a cross shot from the right far from exceptional, but fatal (0-2, 23rd).

Ten minutes later, the failed and dangerous intervention by Collins, his foot forward on Grealish’s thigh, earned the Wolverhampton central defender a logical red card (33rd), synonymous for his team with numerical inferiority and the score. From then on, City concluded the first period on a small scale, having a priori nothing more to fear from his trip. And the resumption of the match at the same pace allowed Wolverhampton to continue to exist in this meeting, without being dangerous.

92

Now the author of 92 assists in the Premier League, Kevin De Bruyne has delivered as many as Steven Gerrard, but in far fewer matches: 217 against 504.

On the other hand, City offered themselves some very dangerous counterattacks despite the low intensity put into the game and ended up scoring a third goal, almost a copy-paste of the first: Haaland’s shift on the right side for De Bruyne, whose center found Foden (0-3, 69th). Large winner and still undefeated, the Manchester club will be very difficult to dispossess of its title.

The player: Haaland figures again

The insatiable City goalscorer scored his 11th Premier League goal of the season on his first occasion, his fourteenth in all competitions. Also on the penultimate pass on his team’s 3rd goal, Haaland confirms his breathtaking start to the season and continues to inflate his statistics game after game.
