Chelsea are keeping Manchester City in check, and Haaland's nose for scoring goals is temporarily blocked

Chelsea are keeping Manchester City in check, and Haaland's nose for scoring goals is temporarily blocked

Manchester City came back down to earth after 11 straight wins. Former City player Raheem Sterling gave Chelsea the lead, a lead that the visitors defended tooth and nail. Erling Haaland had several chances to equalize, but it was Rodri who did it for City.

Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland are back and suddenly Manchester City is running like an unstoppable machine again. They have won 11 matches in a row, starting with the Club World Cup in December.

But Chelsea are also showing signs of improvement after several months of doom and gloom. In any case, they accepted the challenge against City and also took the lead shortly before half-time.

Kyle Walker was unable to stop his former teammate Raheem Sterling, and Ederson had no chance in his attempt.

Ederson himself then had to make two saves to save his team. But then it was City who did the talking.

Haaland got chance after chance, but we got confirmation of what we saw earlier in Copenhagen: the Norwegian has been missing him for some time.

Rhodri seems to realize this and then starts getting involved in the matter himself. Just like in the Champions League final, he shot the ball into the goal from the second row.

With only one point, City remains in third place, two points behind Arsenal and four points behind Liverpool. City have played one game less.
