After four matches, Man City saw the face of victory. Manchester City, the current champion of the Premier League, finally won. On Sunday (December 10), the Citizens came away with a win against Luton Town.
Manchester City had gone four games without a win before their win against Luton Town. City fans received bad news before the match on Sunday after losing 1-0 against Aston Villa in the last match. Before the match, City coach Pep Guardiola said that Holland, the best striker of the team, was knocked out due to a bone injury.
After the start of the match against Luton, the Citizens were ahead in attack, but it was the hosts who scored the first goal. City fell behind in first-half added time. Elijah Adebayo gave Luton the lead with a header from Andros Townsend’s cross.
However, the league champions came back into the match in the second half. 62 to 65, City turned the game around by scoring two goals in these three minutes. Bernardo Silva equalized the Citizens in the 62nd minute. Jack Grealish put the team ahead three minutes later. Grealish-Alvarez wasted many opportunities against Luton despite being ahead in attack today. But in the end, Guardiola’s team left Luton’s Kenilworth Road with a comfortable victory.
