Football has been an English tradition for the past century and a half. Ever since the Oxford Rules were first drafted in the mid-1800s, the sport has blown up in the country, and more broadly the world. Today, it has become the number 1, most watched sport in the entire world, with over five billion fans the globe over.

In England, football is by far the most popular sport, with millions of fans attending games, or watching from their homes or sports pubs. England’s national football team is one of the most successful teams, according to FIFA, and taking a look at the official rankings reveals they are among the top 5 best European teams.

The country is also home to some of the most popular football clubs, including Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City, and, most popular of all, Manchester United.

The Premier League

When it comes to English football, the most prestigious competition, without a doubt, is the Premier League. Usually starting in august and ending in May, the Premier League consists of twenty-six teams facing off against each other, the players pushing themselves to the limit in order to make sure their club remains in the first tier.

For the past couple of years, the dominant team in the Premier League has been Manchester City. The club have really proven themselves deserving of the title of best, having competed in 23 matches so far, of which they have won 18, and lost only 2. But how are Manchester city doing in the Premier League current match?

In this article, we are going to take a look at a few of the most recent Manchester City matches and talk about the club’s track record.

15 January 2022 – VS. Chelsea

The first match we are taking a look at, is the match against Chelsea, played on 15 Jan. This was their second-to-last match played during the current season, and the last match in the season that they won. For most of the match, the score remained at a tie, with neither team able to score a goal against each other’s valiant defense.

Once kickoff began, the first notable shake-up was Marcos Alonso receiving a yellow card, for bringing down Man City’s left flank. The next yellow card is, once again, given to the Chelsea team, earned by Mateo Kovacic, who delivered a challenge on the ankle of a Man City player.

The half time ended with a score of 0-0, however, in the second half of the game, Kevin De Bruyne managed to push through Chelsea’s defense and score a goal in the 70-minute mark. With this he clenched a victory for the champions.

Manchester City is one of the best clubs in the football world. They would have been far stronger if they had managed to land Lionel Messi who later went on to join Paris Saint-Germain. The Argentine is undoubtedly one of the greatest footballers of all time and his name is so famous that even a piece such as is Messi autistic generates a great deal of interest among fans than anything else.

22 January 2022 – VS. Southampton

The latest game played by Manchester City came on 22 January, played against Southampton. Both team played their hearts out, and the match ended in a 1 – 1 draw. The Southampton team came out strong, managing to score a goal in the very first 10 minutes of game. The heart-pumping excitement of the first half ended with a 1 – 0 Southampton lead. However, Manchester City would recover in the second half.

For twenty minutes of the second half, Manchester City could do nothing to break through the Southampton defense. This changed, however, in the 65th minute, when the Manchester City team pulled off a fantastic play, allowed Aymeric Laporte, a defender for the Man City team, to equalize the score.

The match went on with neither team able to penetrate each other’s defenses, and ended in a tie.

9 February 2022 – VS. Brentford

Manchester City’s next match is scheduled to happen on 9 February, and they are going up against Brentford. Fans are expecting a Manchester City win, however, Brentford has their own supporters. The outcome of the match remains to be seen.
