Clinical Alvaraz, Sterling imprecise. Panoramic.
TOPS/FLOPS – Surgical Alvarez, collective mastery, imprecise Sterling and overwhelmed Azpilicueta … Find out what caught the attention of the editorial staff in this Manchester City-Chelsea (1-0).
Alvarez Maximum Efficiency
Clinical. This is the qualifier that suits the young Argentinian perfectly. Always wonderfully well placed, the attacker has constantly slipped with ease into the 3-headed rearguard of the Blues. Scorer with a nice cross shot after an excellent call, he once again showed that there was only Erling Haaland to put him on the bench. Author of a double finally refused for a hand of Riyad Mahrez (71st), he played 90 minutes and finished the meeting alongside the Norwegian.
The mastery of the youth cl of City
Which team in Europe can afford to start a meeting with Ederson, John Stones, Ruben Dias, Rodri, Kévin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gündogan, Bernardo Silva, Jack Grealish and Erling Haaland. Even though such a roster of world-cl players is left to rest, the quality does not weaken in the eleven of Pep Guardiola. With a team made up of Rico Lewis, Cole Palmer and Sergio Gomez, the “second knives” held their rank perfectly. Such mastery is truly disconcerting.

Sterling, voluntary but imprecise
Missed return for the former citizen. In his ex-garden, Raheem Sterling struggled a lot it is true, but was far too clumsy in his decision-making, in the last gesture… Often standing out, the English international stumbled several times on Stefan Ortega and in particular on a face-to-face won by the German (33rd). No more successful after the break, he was released by Frank Lampard shortly after the hour mark (64th).
Cesar Azpilicueta, overwhelmed
Cole Palmer has not always made the right choices but what is certain is that he made the Spaniard live 90 very complicated minutes. At the club since 2012, the former Marseille player had a hard time containing the pion of the young Englishman. Late on the first goal, he was constantly overtaken on citizen transitions. Captain of a drifting ship.
