2022 has just started, but City is already 13 points ahead of its closest rival (In the absence of Liverpool playing their game this weekend). The light blue team had the ball. More came and hit. Only once, but enough to take all three points from a duel with a direct rival like Chelsea.
The Catalan coach was delighted with his team’s victory. “It was fully deserved,” he explained after the meeting. “For how we played, for everything we’ve done. We can’t forget that we have played against the champion of Europe, they are an incredible team. They defended well, they waited for transitions to punish us, but we won one of them. We’ve had twelve wins in a row, it’s incredible. We have to continue like this.”
“If Liverpool win the games they have to play, the advantage is eight points, so my job is that what people say does not enter the heads of the players. We are more than delighted, but there is still a lot of work to do.”
Kevin De Bruyne was the only one capable of scoring at the Etihad Stadium. A bit, enough to take the three points. He received from Joao Cancelo and started in the direction of the area. He left N’Golo Kanté behind and shot tight from the edge of the box.
“It is a typically his goal. I am delighted for him because he deserves it. He is incredibly humble. He always gives everything for the team. It’s very difficult to find a player like that.”
“Everything we have achieved we did together, and now I want to push him to achieve more. He is a world-class player, and he is humble. He has won the Premier League three times and many other awards, but he wants more, because I know what he is capable of. He lost a bit of confidence this season, it cost him, but he knows what he can do. He has won a lot with this club and he is still the same guy I met the first day. His mother and father must be very proud of him.”
