Man City in world champion mode


By: Manu Tournoux

Recently crowned club world champion, Manchester City returned to the Premier League by winning at Everton (1-3) this Wednesday evening.

Just five days after adding the Club World Cup to its trophy haul in 2023, Manchester City happily returned to English fields this Wednesday evening, with a trip to Everton as part of the 19th day of the Premier League. On the field of a team in good form, Pep Guardiola’s men managed to win 3-1, despite the absences of Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland.

Dominant in the first period, the Skyblues were punished by the Toffees on a ball messed up by Rodri, which allowed Jack Harrison to open the scoring (1-0, 29th). Upon returning from the locker room, a missile from Phil Foden put Man City back on track (1-1, 53rd), and the world champions continued to stifle their opponent, before being rewarded with a penalty of Julian Alvarez (1-2, 64th sp).

A final goal from Bernard Silva (1-3, 86th) killed the suspense and allowed Manchester City, casually, to resume their defense of their English champion title. Before this perfectly successful Club World Cup (3-0 against Urawa, 4-0 against Fluminense), Guardiola and his men remained on a series of only one success in six Premier League days. In the standings, City is three points behind Arsenal and five points behind the provisional leader, Liverpool, who have played one more match than their competitors. The battle has only begun !
