Matokeo ya EPL leo Chelsea vs Man city, November 13, 2023,
After Manchester City beat Chelsea in the last 6 matches in a row, the teams finally drew 4-4 at Stamford Bridge in the PremierLeague
As a result, Man. City has reached 28 points, continuing to remain at the top of the standings while Chelsea is in 10th place with 16 points.
The last time Chelsea beat Man. City was on May 29, 2021 in the Champions League Final (1-0) after which Chelsea lost the next 6 matches without scoring a single goal
This was one of the most exciting games in recent seasons and it is fair to say that those encounters rarely involve City. That does not mean City do not play well, but it means that when they win (and usually even when they lose) they have control of the game.
The most likely City game to rival this one for thrills would be the 3-3 draw at Newcastle United at the start of last season when Guardiola noted that Jack Grealish, who was injured, would have helped them have more control in the game because the England international takes more touches and allows City to be close together, so they do not get counter-attacked so easily. It was not quite as simple as that today because Chelsea played fantastically to force mistakes, but the thrilling nature of the game would not have pleased Guardiola one bit — even had they held on for the victory.
Both Chelsea and City continued to push for the win in a chaotic game, but it was the visitors that went ahead again just 90 seconds after the break when Haaland bundled the ball home. But the game was far from over. Nicolas Jackson scored with a close-range finish, Rodri scored via a deflection in the 86th minute, but 21-year-old Palmer showed nerves of steel against the club he left over the summer to seal a point for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
The draw puts City a point ahead of Liverpool at the top of the table, with Chelsea in 10th.
