Despite the goal from Argentine Manuel Lanzini, Manchester City defeated West Ham 2-1 on Sunday, as a local, and was only one point behind the leader Chelsea, which for its part rescued a draw against United on the day that closed the date 13 of the Premier League English.
On a game crossed by snow that was felt this Sunday in England, Guardiola’s men (who have already secured their qualification for the Champions League round of 16 and defend the Premier title) went ahead with a goal from the German Ilkay Gundogan and They tried to sentence the game so as not to get a surprise against West Ham that beat Liverpool two days ago. However, they had to wait until added time to score the second goal through Brazilian Fernandinho and secure their third consecutive win.
The former River, meanwhile, had entered 15 minutes into the second period and in full injury time he scored for West Ham, with a forehand shot impossible to contain for Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson. For the Argentine it meant scoring again in the Premier after more than a year, but for his team – a great season, fourth with 23 points – it was not enough to avoid their second defeat in a row.
With the triumph of City, the hero of the day ended up being the Italian midfielder Jorgihno, who with a penalty goal rescued Chelsea at London’s Stamford Bridge and he conquered the last shout of 1-1 against Manchester United (with Cristiano Ronaldo as a substitute), which allowed those led by the German Thomas Tuchel to persist in the lead, although with the minimum margin.
The day was completed with Brentford’s 1-0 win over Everton and a rain of goals delivered by Leicester 4-2 Watford, while Burnley-Tottenham Hotspur (without the Argentines Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso among those called up for the visiting team) it was suspended due to a heavy snowfall that left the playing field blank and impossible.
