Manchester City’s momentum is unstoppable. Even compact West Ham, who have just enjoyed the best start in Premier League history, were unable to stop the reigning Treble champions. He had the patience needed to break through the wall that manager David Moyes had erected after Ward-Prowse’s first goal. He continues to count the games as wins.
Manager Josep Guardiola, who underwent surgery for a herniated disc on August 22, returned after missing two games and will be at the London Stadium without De Brunier, Stones, Grealish or Kovacic, who have been absent since the first round. sat on the bench. All three caused muscle discomfort.
However, the weapons at the disposal of the Santopedor were endless, and it did not take long for the “civilians” to besiege the goal of Arreola, the best “iron” of the day. First, the French goalkeeper took away three shots for the away team, a five-fold chance that I don’t understand why it wasn’t decided, then Gvardiol fired a center shot, but Haaland hit the goalmouth. I couldn’t push it.
Half an hour later, Ward-Prowse made no mistake and landed on his right foot for West Ham. The former Southampton player, who had one goal and three assists in his first three days, added his second goal as the ‘Hammer’ headed Coufal’s unfathomable cross from the right.
Moments later, Haaland scored the equalizer thanks to some great action from Doc on the left, but he finished weakly and Agard, who was able to get there in time, took a shot under the stick. What neither the Moroccan centre-back nor the rest of his team-mates could do was stop the ‘Cyblue’ gale after the locker room, which began with Doc’s first Premier League goal.
The former Rennes player played against Coufal and fired a perfect shot into Areola’s long post. Arreola made some valuable interventions in the second half, where City dominated from start to finish. Only Bernardo Silva, receiving a spoonful pass from Julián Álvarez, allowed Haaland to finally break through the wall four minutes before the end. It was Cyborg’s seventh goal and City’s fifth win in five games. Everything remains the same in Premiere.
