What we learned from Manchester đô thị vs Crystal Palace

City making basic defensive errors: They conceded three at Newcastle last weekend và two against Palace on Saturday và they have just been really sloppy. The needless mistakes need to lớn be cut out & Pep Guardiola will probably focus on that after the game. Palace didn’t have a lot of the ball but scoring from their first (and only) two chances isn’t good enough defensively from the reigning champs as they allowed crosses into the box lớn cause unnecessary chaos.

Peak Haaland drags city to win: A header, tap in và a powerful turn and finish. This was peak Erling Haaland and this is exactly why Manchester thành phố signed him this summer. Just when city needed their new star striker lớn stand tall he answered that bat gọi with minimum fuss. He bullied Palace like the honey monster and made the Etihad Stadium seem lượt thích his back yard. Haaland did all of this with the help of his slick thành phố teammates but in the past they may have only drawn this game. Haaland’s clinical edge is something they haven’t had since Sergio Aguero left và now it gives them an even bigger boost in their push to lớn win it all.

Palace miss talisman Zaha: Palace somehow found themselves in a 2-0 lead và had they had Wilfried Zaha fit và available, this could have been a very different outcome. Palace just couldn’t keep the ball & were put under constant pressure. They held out until the 53rd minute before đô thị scored but had Zaha been around they would have surely found him up top & he would have taken the pressure off them.

Tactical focus

This was a dominant win for City, in the end. The fact that Palace were 2-0 up early on meant that đô thị had even more of the ball than usual, as Patrick Vieira’s side sat back và tried to hold on khổng lồ their lead. Good luck with that. Thành phố did struggle to lớn create chances in the first half but the rest of the game saw Kevin de Bruyne, Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva dictate the tempo (City had 75 percent possession) & Erling Haaland was on hand lớn finish off the chances created for him.

Three games into his Manchester city career, Haaland has three goals và one assist lớn his name, with Kevin De Bruyne off khổng lồ a similarly red-hot start (one goal và three assists).

Injuries at center back are something of a concern, with Aymeric Laporte expected khổng lồ miss a few more weeks và Nathan Ake currently battling the groin injury he suffered in the 21 minute against Newcastle. Ruben Dias và John Stones are the last two remaining central defenders at Guardiola’s disposal.

As for Palace, results have steadily improved through three weeks (loss, draw, win) as Patrick Vieira’s side finds its footing & navigates a difficult starting series of fixtures.
