In the Premier League, the question is no longer who, but when can Manchester City celebrate the league title. Against Crystal Palace, City managed to increase the difference to 13 points, but coach Pep Guardiola gives priority to the Champions League. Eight major players against Paris Saint-Germain, including De Bruyne, are now left on the bench.
With 8 new pieces, the puzzle town clicked together with difficulty. Visitors collided with a solid wall from the Crystal Palace. As Roy Hodgson, the true general coach, thought himself in “Gladiator”: “Hold the line,” he shouted at his backguard.
Gabriel Jesus found a hole, but the referee’s assistant was within reach. The best chance before halftime was for Christian Benteke, who couldn’t beat Ederson in the short corner.
After fifteen minutes of consulting in the first half, Manchester City found a loophole in the Palas double defense belt. Retired Sergio Aguero has shown once again why he was City’s top scorer ever. The Argentinian popped deliciously in the upper left corner.
Barely a minute and 23 seconds later, he hit City again, this time via Ferran Torres. An eleventh straight win was never in danger again after those two crazy minutes. Man City will not know until tomorrow if he can hold a big party, because the title is only a reality with Man United’s defeat to Liverpool.
