Manchester City 1-0 Brentford: Issues after the Premier League game, the Blues chased down the leaders by one point.

Erling Haaland scored an important goal to help Manchester City narrowly beat Brentford 1-0 at home, collecting 3 important points, helping them stay in the orbit of the Premier League title race .

Haaland took advantage of Kristoffer Ayer’s slip on the counter-attack. Before killing it through the hands of Mark Flecken in a cool manner, making the “Blues” now overtake Arsenal and move up to second place in the table.

Pep Guardiola’s side trail leaders Liverpool by just one point before they travel to Bournemouth this weekend.

As for the issues we saw from the game at Etihad Stadium last night, they are as follows.

After scoring last night, Erling Haaland matched Harry Kane’s record for scoring goals against every team he has faced in the Premier League. That’s 21 clubs in total, but the former Tottenham Hotspur striker has scored for 32 clubs.

Haaland continues to break records in his second season in England. This is a good indication of his scoring ability. and the impact on Pep Guardiola’s team since moving from Borussia Dortmund

Kevin De Bruyne is injured.

Pep Guardiola confirmed after the game that Kevin De Bruyne had a hamstring injury. As a result, he decided to drop the Belgian midfielder as just a substitute in this match.

De Bruyne started 4 out of 5 matches before this game. And showed excellent performance, scoring 1 goal and 4 assists during this period. However, Guardiola confirmed that he did not want to take the risk of using De Bruyne.

Guardiola said: “Today we didn’t use Kevin because he had a hamstring injury. He’s OK. We’re just being careful and taking precautions.”

“He doesn’t look well. And doctors say there’s a slight risk. We don’t want to risk this after he’s been on a break for five months.”

Oscar Bobb starts?

Jack Grealish is injured. The media also expects Jeremy Doku to start in this game. After being almost the main character of the โปรโมชั่น ufabet team since moving from Rennes last summer.

However, Guardiola surprised him by sending promising 20-year-old Oscar Bobb into the starting XI instead. The Spanish trainer reasoned that Dogu had just started in a high-intensity game when he drew with Chelsea.

Bobb is almost certainly a goal scorer. By showing off his fluency at the visiting team’s defense before shooting past Flecken’s hands, but in the end he was narrowly intercepted by former Manchester City defender Ben Mee on the line.

“Jack is injured and Jeremie has just played a very demanding game against Chelsea and we don’t want to risk fatigue,” Guardiola said.

Manchester City’s next game

After playing the remaining games, Manchester City will focus on this weekend’s matches, leaving for Bournemouth on Saturday night.
