Haaland saved City from the penalty spot, a bitter defeat for Liverpool



Chelsea build on their Champions League win

Crystal Palace held up very well against Manchester City in Round 27 of the Premier League. The current champions struggled for a long time, but Erling Haaland saved them from the penalty spot in the 78th minute. Bournemouth beat Liverpool 1-0 in the opening game.

At Selhurst Park, the visitors had much more chances and had 68% possession of the ball. The decision was made in the 78th minute when Michael Olise tripped Ilkay Gündogan in the penalty area.

City penalty taker Riyad Mahrez sat on the bench for the entire game. Haaland took charge and sent goalkeeper Vicente Guaita the wrong way with his left foot.

City thus moved closer to Arsenal again, two points behind, and the leading team has a visit to city rival Fulham on Sunday.

A cold shower for Liverpool six days after a historic sevenIn the fight for a place in the Champions League, the Liverpool players did not confirm the high victory from the previous round, when they defeated Manchester United with a score of 7:0. They had to play in a different way against last-placed Bournemouth until this round, but they were not successful. Philip Billing decided in the 28th minute from six meters with his right foot, Dango Ouattara beat Virgil van Dijk on the right and passed in front of goal.

Salah shot past the goal from eleven metersThey are in the second half rarely pressed. In came Diogo Jota, who headed in a header in the 67th minute, and defender Adam Smith tried to deflect the ball, but it hit him in the hand. Referee John Brooks looked at the tape on the sideline and pointed to the white spot. Mohamed Salah took charge but fired wide with his left foot.

Liverpool’s slippage was taken advantage of by Tottenham, who beat Nottingham Forest 3:1 and gained a slightly bigger advantage in fourth place. Harry Kane scored two goals.

Chelsea caught a winning rhythmA successful appearance in the Champions League has put some wind at the back of the Chelsea players. After a series of unconvincing first-team performances, they still won. Leicester, facing a fight for survival, had to admit superiority to the Londoners with 1:3.
