Is it an ‘ugh man’ scenario again?


Manchester City (Man City), who are looking to win their fourth consecutive English Premier League (EPL) title this season, started the season with six straight wins, but then slumped to fifth place after 18 rounds, six points behind leaders Liverpool. However, as the saying goes, “ah man, they’re the champions,” and they’ve bounced back to climb to within a point of Liverpool.

City defeated Brentford 3-1 away in the 23rd round of the 2023-2024 EPL on June 6 to extend their league winning streak to five games. With one game less to play, City moved into second place with 49 points (15 W, 4 D, 3 L, +29 goal difference), two points behind first-place Liverpool 토토사이트 (51 points, 15 W, 6 D, 2 L), who lost 1-0 to Arsenal the previous day. The Gunners are tied with Man City for third place on points and third in goal differential (+25). With 60% of the EPL schedule played this season, Liverpool, City, and Arsenal are all in contention for the title.

Phil Foden (24-England) was the man behind City’s fifth straight win.

Foden, who joined City’s youth team as a nine-year-old in 2009 and has been with the club ever since, with only one loan spell, completed his hat-trick with goals in first-half stoppage time and the eighth and 25th minutes of the second half. With City striker Elling Holan (24-Norway), who is tied for the EPL’s top scorer with Liverpool’s Muhammad Salah (32-Egypt) with 14 goals, unable to find the back of the net since returning from injury and hasn’t scored in the EPL in more than two months, Foden’s outburst allowed City to run away with the victory.

The biggest spark for City’s charge to the top of the table was the return of EPL staple midfielder Kevin De Bruyne (33-Belgium). Since his return from a lengthy injury last month after a five-month absence, City have been on a winning streak. It also helped that none of City’s first-team players were away on international duty at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations and Asian Cup of Nations. On the other hand, 파워볼실시간 title rivals Liverpool have been dealt a blow with star striker Salah injuring his thigh at the Nations Cup and will be out for a while.
