2023-12-06 22:09:28

At the end of a fantastic match, Aston Villa won the summit match of the 15th day of the Premier League against Manchester City (1-0) and took the opportunity to take third place in the standings.

In a series of three consecutive splits, Manchester City traveled to Aston Villa with less certainty than usual, especially as they had to do without Jérémy Dokuinjured, but also Rodri et Jack Grealish for suspension, without forgetting Kevin De Bruyne. The trip to Aston Villa, despite John’s return Stones, looked like a trap on the lawn of a team which remained on a series of thirteen consecutive victories at home in the Premier League. With Yuri Tielemans holder, men ofUnai Emery wanted to continue and take the opportunity to beat their evening opponent in the rankings.

From the start of the match, Aston Villa demonstrated why the Birmingham team were the attraction of this first part of the season and could have opened the scoring via Pau Torres (7th). In the process, Erling Haaland thought to silence Villa Park but the Norwegian cyborg was the victim of two superb paradesEmiliano Martinez (11th). The rest of the first half was largely to the advantage… of Villa who came close to opening the scoring on several occasions. Without careful intervention from If Guardiol in front of Tielemans, the Red Devil could have taken advantage of an opposing error to open the scoring (33rd). The supporters still thought they would finally open the score (meritoriously) in added time with a header. Douglas Luiz but the ball had gone out of bounds just before the center (45th+2). The two teams therefore returned to the locker room with a score of parity, almost flattering for City as Villa was impressive in sequences even if the precision sometimes faltered.

Returning from the locker room, the match continued at a similar pace with a Villa team stifling their opponent but not lacking in success, notably John McGinn, after finding himself alone against Ederson (63rd). His total domination was finally rewarded at the end of the match. Taking advantage of a somewhat lucky pass from Tielemans, Leon Bailey erased Gvardiol with a superb technical move before trying his luck with his wrong foot. On the trajectory of the shot which was going to be on target anyway, Ruben Dias deflected the ball against his side, blowing up Villa Park (73rd). Almost immediately, Luiz came close to hitting the nail on the head but a superb saveEderson allowed the Skyblues to stay in the match (77th). At the end of the match, the Brazilian showed himself again but his curling shot at the entrance to the area ended up hitting the post.
