West Bromwich Albion 2-3 Manchester City - Four Talking Points From the Game en Rishabh
Choudhary 29 Oct 2017 Manchester City continued their thrilling run of form after recording a 3-2 win at the Hawthorns. The first fifteen minutes saw three goals being scored, as City took the lead two times, subsequently going on to win the game. Leroy Sane, Fernandinho and Raheem Sterling made it to the scoresheet for the Citizens as Jay Rodriguez and Matt Philips fizzed two at home against the mighty league leaders. Here are the major talking points from the game.
1.Tony Pulis will rue the missed chances City's stellar attacking prowess didn't deter West Brom from playing an attacking brand of football. They had a remarkable number of shots and chances under their belt, considering the scarcity of possession. Albeit West Brom netted twice, they could have held City to a draw. Rondon and Krychowiak had two headers denied by keeper Ederson, and they proved to be decisive in the fixture.
2.The Sensational Sane Leroy Sane provided another Man-of-the-Match performance for his team after scoring the first and setting up Fernandinho for his deflected goal against West Brom. Having played 600 minutes in 10 Premier League games, the 21-year-old has notched an impressive 5 assists and 6 goals. Should he continue his exploits, why, Sane might as well win the PFA Player of the Year this season.
3.A tough November for the Baggies Following a poor run of form, West Brom are now 14th in the league with 10 points, just two above the relegation zone. West Brom have four league fixtures in November. After a trip to Huddersfield, they have tough fixtures with Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur coming up in the weeks following the international break, before they take on Newcastle United.
4. Can they be the Invincibles Pep Guardiola's men have lost only two points in a home draw against Everton this season, Since then, they have been breath-taking, winning eight games in a row. Having a glimpse at the statistics compels people to compare them to Wenger's Invincibles. Though they are being touted to equal the feat, similar things happened to them last season when their performances dwindled unexpectedly in the second half of the season. Transfer News
