Manchester City: Guardiola’s TGV is unstoppable – football
Winner Brentford (1-0) on Wednesday, Manchester City continued with a 10th consecutive success in the Premier League. The reigning English champion is establishing himself more than ever as the big favorite, his own succession.
Pep Guardiola finds himself at the head of a war machine.
The Premier League is rarely won during the holiday season. But it gets lost very often.
And this little game, Chelsea and Liverpool, long imperial, have experienced some difficulties in recent days. Quite the opposite of Manchester City.
Almost too easy for Manchester City
Indeed, the reigning English champion has been on a cloud for several weeks already. In Brentford (1-0), Wednesday, the Citizens have enchanted with a 10th success in a row on the national scene. A new victory which allows them to count 50 points in 20 days, 8 more than the Blues, 2nd. One more, probably the most difficult of the fortnight, after festivals against Leeds (7-0), Newcastle (4-0) and Leicester (6-3), but especially the 36th of the year 2021 in the Premier League, a record.
Irrsistible, the Skyblues walk on their opponents, regardless of the pattern. On the lawn of the promoted, Pep Guardiola did not need Kyle Walker, John Stones or Rodri, absent. Ilkay Gndogan, Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling remained on the bench. A few days earlier, against the Foxes, Jack Grealish and Gabriel Jesus did not play a single minute while Phil Foden only entered late. An efficient turnover which allows the Catalan manager to preserve his players in this intense period.
All lights are green
As such, Manchester City is currently much more saved than its competitors for the title. No major injury has been grieving for a very long time. Also, the cases of Covid-19 which decay the workforce of the English championship, such as Chelsea or Arsenal, have been rare or even non-existent for several weeks. And unlike Liverpool, who will lose Mohamed Salah and Sadio Man for the Africa Cup of Nations in January, the Premier League leader will only have to compose without Mahrez during the coming month.
Despite all these green lights, Guardiola does not want to ignite. All of you, thank you for your good comments because we are winning tonight but know that I will not believe a single word of yours when you say the championship is already over. For the simple reason that Chelsea and Liverpool are so exceptional. One is European champion and the other has been one of our biggest rivals in recent seasons. The gap that exists is not because they lose points, but because we win 10 games in a row, the 50-year-old man recalled to the press. In any case, his TGV, launched like a bomb, will be difficult to catch up.
