Manchester City has not yet managed to secure the English national title, partly due to a goal by Hakim Ziyech. The home game against Chelsea was lost 2-1. In exactly three weeks, the two top clubs will meet again, then in the context of the Champions League final.
Ziyech equalized after more than an hour with a slider with the left. Goalkeeper Ederson was still on the ball, but was just unable to turn the bet.
Just before half time, Raheem Sterling City had still led. Not much later, in the injury time of the first half, City was given the opportunity to double the lead. Sergio Agüero, however, missed a penalty; he decided on a ‘Panenka’ and it was simply plucked from the air by the Senegalese goalkeeper Edouard Mendy. Marcos Alonso gave Chelsea the victory in injury time.
Due to City’s loss of points, the team of coach Pep Guardiola’s team is 13 points ahead of fellow city rivals Manchester United. However, United still has five games to play and can theoretically make up for the gap.
