City set another record. And it was a shame to watch Newcastle

17 home wins in a row! This time, Guardiola didn’t even need to be replaced.

Manchester City feels more confident in the Premier League than in the Super Cups (UEFA and England). This season, in the match for the trophy, Guardiola’s team played both times to a draw, and in the championship they won two sure victories. Although on the scoreboard of the game with Newcastle you can’t say that.

Now the main event in the life of City is no longer the departure of Gundogan, but De Bruyne’s injury. According to the head coach, the team needs time to find the game without a leader. By the way, he has been injured too often lately. Formally, De Bruyne’s place in midfield was taken by Álvarez. It is true that we are talking about the arrangement and not the style of the game. Also, Foden often moved from his right flank to the center. It was there, as a rule, that he met the ball.

The only goal of this match was scored by just the youngsters Foden (23 years old) and Álvarez (23 years old). Phil received the ball in midfield, went to the penalty area and made an undercover pass to Álvarez. The Argentine took the ball on his first touch and sent it to the far corner on the second. Great goal.

The main question of the second half: how was Gordon not sent off? With a yellow card, the Newcastle winger allowed himself another hard foul on Dias in the 53rd minute. The referee took pity on Gordon, and two minutes later he left the field for a substitution. At the same time, Joelinton walked off the field with him. The key player of the guests moved to the bench limping.

Going forward, the game looked rather monotonous. “City” attracted the opponent’s pressure again and again, and then passed it and received dangerous attacks in space. Newcastle had to foul again. Thus, Barnes, who entered the field, received a yellow card two minutes after entering the field. The further into the match the more difficult it became for Newcastle to defend. Holland fired three magic shots near the post (also hit the mark).

City are world champions in pace control. Or, rather, because of how she needs to be calmed down (although that cannot be said in the Champions League final). “Newcastle” throughout the match could not create at least one real scoring opportunity. The first shot on goal – in the 70th minute. And then from afar and practically in the hands of Ederson. It turned out to be the only success of the guests on the City goal.

Guardiola talking to a fan

The atmosphere for the locals was so relaxed that Guardiola even spoke to a fan during the game. He showed her, they say, come on, come to the bank. Apparently, the fan suggested something to the coach for substitutions. Although it is not very clear why. Guardiola did not make a single change, but he set a record: for the first time in the club’s history, City won 17 consecutive home wins in all competitions.
