If the Red Devils lose to Aston Villa on Sunday, the seventh City title, also the third in the past four seasons, will be finally concluded.
The “Citizens” advanced against Chelsea in the 44th minute. After a cross pass from Gabriel Jesus, Sergio Aguero made a bad acceptance of the ball, behind which Raheem Sterling made it 1-0. Shortly before the break, Aguero missed a penalty – the Argentine failed with a poorly executed penalty by Banenca against Chelsea goalkeeper Edward Mendy.
This should take revenge, because Hakim Ziyech made a low shot in the 63rd minute in exchange for an undue compensation for the guests. Then the match swung back and forth, and the guests achieved a “lucky punch”, who had previously been denied a hat-trick for offside. Marcus Alonso scored in the 92nd minute after Timo Werner’s preliminary work.
In doing so, Chelsea have won their last two games with ManCity, and the next competition will take place on May 29 in the Champions League Final – but then with a completely different formation. City coach Pep Guardiola made nine changes to the starting line-up compared to the semi-final victory over PSG, and his opponent Thomas Tuchel sent only a boosted B-Force onto the field.
The win pushed Chelsea to third place, one point behind Leicester City. The “Foxes” occupy last place in the Champions League, which is three points away from Liverpool in terms of losing points. The “Reds” came against Southampton with a faint 2-0 victory at home, and scored the goals with a header from Sadio Mane after a cross from Mohamed Salah (31) and Thiago with a shot from the edge of the penalty area (91). . The “Saints” under the direction of Styria Ralph Hasenhotel have 16 tables. Four matches before the end, ten points clear of the first relegation zone.
