Some Important Highlights And Analysis Of The Man City Vs Chelsea Game

Man City Vs Chelsea Game

The Man City vs Chelsea game was very thrilling to reckon with. Manchester won 4-0. Thus it went on to win with a significant margin over Chelsea. We shall explore some important highlights and analyses of the game.


Riyad Mahrez was the one scoring the only goal in this case. He did so when the sides met at Stamford Bridge. It happened back in the Premier League, which took place three days ago. We also find that the Algeria winger opened the scoring again in the 23rd minute of the game. In this case, there was the dispatching of a sumptuous free-kick for his seventh goal of the season. Also, interestingly, it can be considered overall fourth since the onset of November.

Julian Alvarez led to the initial start for City, and this has to be noted with due diligence. It is from starring in Argentina’s run and then to World Cup glory. He also fired home a penalty at large. He did so with half an hour played after Kai Havertz handballed without any explanation to reckon with.

We can also find Pep Guardiola’s side playing intermittently in west London. This went on during midweek. Further, what is interesting is that they turned on the style against Chelsea. They went on to do so with a wonderful team goal. Thus this collective effort was brilliant to reckon with.

 It also saw Phil Foden brilliantly sealing a place in the fourth round before halftime. Here there are six-time winners who will go on to face Premier League leaders. These leaders will either be Arsenal or Oxford United.

What led Chelsea to lose?

There was a combination of factors leading to the loss of Chelsea. There was a raft of substitutions to reckon with. Thus it did not bear well with the team. It eventually led to their loss. 

The second half of the game went on to become even less of a spectacle due to their performance. Hence the final result was much anticipated beforehand. 

Mahrez, however, went on to add an overall gloss to the complete scoreline. He did so by thumping City’s second penalty at large, which took the afternoon into the top corner. All of it happened after Kalidou Koulibaly responded to Bernardo Silva’s driving run at large. There was also a pass-by found that led to blundering into the back of Foden. 

Reason Chelsea fans are cheering for Thomas Tuchel 

The squad of Chelsea is nothing but ambitious to reckon with. This is even though many of the star players were missing from the game. The absentees include Mason Mount, Jorginho, Conor Gallagher, Hakim Ziyech, and others.

If we consider the domestic front, Chelsea went on to win two of their past 10 and also one of the most recent eight in all competitions involved.

Thus fans are praising Thomas Tuchel, the Champions League-winning manager.

According to Potter, “We were second best to a very, very good side. We’re not in a great moment ourselves. At 2-0, you have to chase the ball against Manchester City and are caught between committing more men and not getting opened up. The first half was painful. Clearly, we’re suffering as a football club”.
