Foden edged past Haaland with his hat trick and City stalked Liverpool

Date:

Erling Haaland He started for the first time just two months after his leg injury, but Phil Foden whose extraordinary hat trick beat Brentford (1-3) and put City, who have a game against the ‘Bees’ themselves, two points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Pep Guardiola with all his players available, he came out with his full attacking arsenal, including Bernardo Silva, Julián Álvarez, De Bruyne and Foden behind Haaland. A very offensive line-up despite the threat of Ivan Toney at the spearhead of a Brentford team that won two league games against City last season.


Flekken stopped everything and provided the assist to make it 1-0!

But the great enemy of the first part is Mark Flecken. The goalkeeper of the ‘Bees’ not only released, without exaggeration, seven saves on the shots of Julián Álvarez, Kyle Walker, De Bruyne, Josko Gvardiol and even frustrated Haaland in one-on-one.


Flekken also provided the assist for the goal where Brentford opened the scoring in the 21st minute. The Dutchman gets a long shot on goal, Toney made a ‘clarification’ on the fight with Nathan Aké and the ball went straight to him Neal Maupaywho ran away alone and beat Ederson Moraes on his way out.

Direct football in its purest form

Thomas Frank, manager of a Brentford team that plays direct football to perfection. He showed City that you can also score with a pass. The game of association and pressing seems like a miracle Pep Guardiola It would not result in a goal, but with his players’ 17th shot in the first half came the tie.


This is in addition. De Bruyne put in a chipped pass, centre-back Ethan Pinnock produced a wicked header and Foden brought the ball down with his chest and shot past Flekken.

De Bruyne gave Foden the second

Foden’s recital continued after the break with De Bruyne’s partnership returning to his previous high level. The Belgian gave him a sumptuous ball to the young winger, who was in the ‘9’ position headed to the net with a remarkable Haaland-like turn of the neck (53′).

But Brentford didn’t throw in the towel easily and put City in trouble with their long moves perfectly read down the left wing. newcomer Sergio Reguilón.

Brentford terrorize City

Rúben Dias and Gvardiol, provincial, In just two minutes they prevented Christian Norgaard and Maupay from re-establishing the tie with two point-blank shots.

A 1-3 score ended the hopes of the ‘bees’. This is a good manufacturing purpose and execution. Rodri sent a pass between the lines to Haaland, who played it short Foden will slot in between the centre-backs From behind, he stood alone against Flekken and finished in class (70′). It was his second hat trick for City.

The ‘Bees’, the only team that Haaland has yet to score

It was the most notable intervention by a prolific Haaland who once again missed the mark against the only Premier team he has failed to beat since arriving in England last season. But, with the entire team at his disposal, Guardiola has unlimited resources City, after their fifth consecutive league win, fight for his fourth straight Premier.
