City wins thanks to a penalty kick after Onana's hand against Everton, and Lafia finally makes her debut with Chelsea | soccer

In the Premier League, Manchester City did not falter against low-flying Everton. The Citizens fell behind – without De Bruyne, Doku and Haaland – but they corrected the imbalanced situation in the second half. More than 300 kilometers away, Romeo Lavia finally celebrated his Chelsea debut after four months.

In the penultimate match of 2023, Manchester City travels to Everton, which has been performing strongly in the English Premier League in recent weeks. In addition, the Citizens still have to do without stars Kevin De Bruyne, Jeremy Doku and Erling Haaland. So being alert was the message at Goodison Park.

It also happened just before the half-hour mark. City had dominated the entire match until then, but then Rodri's lights went out – not like usual. The Spanish midfielder simply passed the ball to McNeil, who gave Harrison the score 1-0. The home team also entered the end of the first half with this slight lead.

But after the break, City completely corrected the situation. Foden made it 1-1 with a shot from distance and ten minutes later Alvarez gave the visitors the lead from the penalty spot. This penalty kick came after a handball by Red Devil Amadou Onana inside his team's penalty area. In the final stage, Bernardo Silva scored the final score 1-3.

Against Crystal Palace, he appeared at Stamford Bridge just under an hour later. Thanks to a late penalty goal scored by Madueke (2-1), Lafia was able to immediately cheer on his debut. Chelsea travel to Luton Town on Saturday (1.30pm). Will there be time to play again?
