From a position of strength, the guests (and how different?) Played a great desire to win (also expected), but the realization of Guardiola's moments leaves much to be desired. Sometimes they fell on banal piles that were short of organization for Sir Alex, and despite the fact that they can't boast the reliability of the "toffee" defense. Even knocking the ball from the penalty owners didn't always work.
Liverpulz could well defend the draw, good luck accompanied by them, and we could notice fatigue among men. But the "Man City" class had an effect, even in a difficult situation they had the way. It turned out to be decisive canopy David Silva with a penalty kick, the defenders missed Laport, this with "Everton" is often, and the Frenchman hit his head from ten meters exactly to the goal – 1: 0.
Marc da Silva has such a team that is more likely to attack, came out with the owners quite dangerous attacks, tried Calvert-Lewin, Walcott, then Richardison came on as a replacement and strengthened the team. But the "townmen" still controlled everything, and they didn't have a single mistake.
Everything was put in his place by Jesus, who also came as a substitute and strengthened the guests. It seemed that "Man City" at the end was nestled at its target, sitting too low and paying for it. But Jesus escaped on a date with Pickford, could not beat him at first attempt, the ball returned to the Brazilians and Gabriel hit the target again.
It will be more interesting, an incredible intrigue – in the "Liverpool" game in the reserve, but for now Sir Alexei returned the leadership of the championship.
