Manchester City have tightened their grip on the leadership position in the Premier League. While the competition was low on points, City scored a frugal win on a visit to Brentford, courtesy of Kevin De Bruyne.
After the defeat of Liverpool and the draw of Chelsea, Manchester City managed to deepen the gap with the first pursuers. It had to be won in the field of a doctoral student Brentford.
After a few chances from the home team, City fired mercilessly in the fifteen minutes. With one of his typical cross passes, De Bruyne found Phil Foden, who left Brentford goalkeeper Fernandes without a chance.
With 0-1 on the scoreboard, the guests controlled the match. After the break, City made the net two more times, but Foden and Laporte’s goals again were disallowed for offside.
So a frugal 0-1 result – the 10th consecutive league win – and that was enough to slip a bit further away from the competition. The difference with Chelsea is already 8 points. He follows Liverpool with 9 points, but still has one match left.
