Only 2 wins until ‘Treble’! Shall we write the first history of the club… ‘Pepcity’, who won the EPL 3 times in a row, defeated Chelsea 1-0
Only two wins were left before writing the history of the club.
Manchester City beat Chelsea 1-0 in the 36th round of the English Premier League (PL) in the 2022-23 season held at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England on the 22nd (Korean time).
The day before the match, Man City confirmed this season’s Premier League title by defeating runner-up Arsenal. Afterwards, they defeated Chelsea in 12th place in a home game to celebrate their rise to the top of the Premier League.
It’s overwhelming. Under Pep Guardiola’s managerial system, Man City won three consecutive Premier League titles from the 2020-21 season. Last season, after fierce competition with Liverpool, they reached the top by one point. This season seemed to be pushed back by Arsenal, but at the end of the season, it showed its potential and completed a counter electrode. On the other hand, Arsenal, which maintained the lead until the middle of the season, rapidly fell into a slump and self-destructed.먹튀검증
Man City, who had already confirmed the championship, took care of both the victory and the physical arrangement of the main player in the match against Chelsea. On this day, Man City removed key players such as Erling Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne, Ruben Dias and Jack Grealish from the starting list. Instead, the lineup was built around young players such as Julian Alvarez, Cole Palmer, and Rico Lewis. Chelsea, on the other hand, had a best 11 with Raheem Sterling, Kai Havertz, Enzo Fernandez and Thiago Silva.
Man City, who lost their strength, rather scored the first goal. 12 minutes into the game, Alvarez shook the net. Even after that, Man City dominated the game. He increased possession of the ball and attacked the Chelsea defense.
In a somewhat relaxed atmosphere, Man City put in a large number of key players in the second half. Starting with John Stones, Holland, Rodri, and The Bruiner stepped on the ground. Goalkeeper Ederson, defender Dias, and midfielders Bernardo Silva and Grealish kept the bench until the end. Manchester City, who won 1-0, celebrated their return to the top of the Premier League by lifting the trophy at home.
There are only two wins left to the first treble in team history. Manchester City will face rivals Manchester United on the 3rd in the FA Cup final. On the 11th, Inter Milan, the traditional powerhouse of Italy’s Serie A, will fight for the Champions League (UCL) championship cup of the European Football Federation (UEFA). Man City, who won all competitions in England under the Guardiola managerial system, aims for the first big year.
