Quadruple Duple: Man City Lock Horns with Chelsea in an Epic GW 12 Match
Things started as we’d not expected, with both Man City and Chelsea looking very lively and eager to score. We were getting a hint of the exothermic reactions that would come from this game but had no idea the epic clash that was awaiting.
Goal Machine Erling Haaland thrust himself at goal and was brought down by Cucurella in the box, triggering a 25th-minute penalty that he so gracefully converted. Before long, 39-year-old Thiago Silva equalized for Chelsea in the 29th minute, via an impeccable bullet header, becoming the oldest player to score in the PL since Ryan Giggs. 1-1 was the score and on went the fiery clash of titans.
Come the 37th minute, Raheem Sterling put Chelsea ahead in what was a sublime tap-in.
It wasn’t long, however, until Man City’s Manuel Akanji equalized for the defending champs with a swift sure-stricken header in 45 + 1’.
As if the Nordic ponytailed-gods in Valhalla were watching the game, Erling Haaland then went in with another impeccable strike, this time putting Man City 3-2 ahead.
On the game went for halftime, with the Valholl-based gods seemingly happy with their descendant.
Come the second half, New Chelsea star, the unstoppable force that is Nicolas Jackson equalized for Chelsea, putting them level with the defending champs in the 67th minute.
City weren’t relenting, however, with Super Captain Rodri putting in their fourth in the 86th minute. The tides of luck somewhat shifted for the captain and his team, nonetheless, when he conceded a penalty in stoppage time.
Cole Palmer stepped forward to take the kick and was sure to deny Man City a 4-3 win thanks to his impeccable conversion. Cole Palmer strew the penalty in on 90 + 5’ confirming that Manchester City had effectively denied themself a momentous three points, having to contend with bagging only one.
Liverpool Sting Brentford
Perhaps in a case of the bee getting stung, Liverpool beat Brentford 3-0, marking a re-entry of ‘the Reds’ to the league title contenders book for this season.
Mo Salah Brace
The magic happened thanks to a Mohamed Salah brace that kicked off with his first goal in the 39th minute, a quickly executed wonderfully put across left bottom corner goal, and followed by another sublime one, this time a header in the 62nd minute. Before the dust could settle and ‘the Bees’ could get some more honey for strength, however, Diogo Jota put in Liverpool’s third in the 74th minute.
