Esteemed Kompany host Steven Mcinerney goes over 5 things we learned from Manchester City’s 4-all draw with Chelsea. Pep Guardiola’s side left Stamford Bridge with a point following a thrilling encounter with Mauricio Pochettino’s side. The draw sees City go to the international break with a one-point lead at the top of the Premier League.
Over the past month, Phil Foden has put in a quality month of performances. He has been one of Manchester City’s most consistent players throughout the season so far. With the departures of Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan in the summer City has needed Foden to step up. Foden has more than done that so far this season as he begins to mature as a player. His maturity has been one positive of City’s season so far.
Another former City academy product has excelled since leaving the club. Cole Palmer scored a late penalty to help his side claim a deserved point against the reigning Premier League champions. Palmer does appear to be a player that got away from the treble winners. But with the youngster keen to leave the Etihad and City signing Jeremy Doku Palmer’s move to Chelsea appears to have benefited all parties.
As the thrilling draw played out it was clear that Manchester City couldn’t control the game in their regular fashion. Chelsea deserves credit for unsettling City and having a go at the European champions. As much as Pep Guardiola wants his side to control the game it isn’t always possible as this game showed.
