Esteemed Kompany host Steven Mcinerney goes over 5 things we learned from Manchester City’s 3-1 win over Young Boys. The European champions seized control of Group G in the UEFA Champions League with the win.
Jack Grealish had his best performance of the season in the win. The England international had made a slow start to the season but returned to his best with a quality display on both flanks. It was a welcome sight for Pep Guardiola and his side ahead of this weekend’s derby against Manchester United.
Erling Haaland stole the show as his brace secured the win for the treble winners. He cooly converted a penalty in the 65th minute and put the game to bed with a world-class finish in the 86th minute. Haaland’s performance reminded everyone to never doubt the Norwegian striker. It also means City’s number 9 will head to Old Trafford in ominous form ahead of Sunday’s derby.
City’s World Cup winner Julian Alvarez also provided a brief cameo off the bench in the win over Young Boys. The Argentinean has been one of the treble winners best players so far this season and he again showed why. It was his and Bernardo Silva’s introduction that sparked City with the game delicately poised at 1-all before their introduction.
