Aston Villa vs Man City results: Premier League scores, goals and reports

If this is an “emergency,” it’s the kind that many others want. Pep Guardiola‘NS trauma crisis prove anything but important to City of Manchester as a show of power and excellence was armed by an inevitable strike by Ruben Dias and a beautiful goal from Bernardo Silva.

Steven Gerrard tended to be a word for spectacular in his playing days, so perhaps a great goalscorer was beaten by the dazzling form he almost became. brand. Gerrard’s first loss as Aston Villa the manager arrived courtesy of the club, who denied his title in 2014; The chants of City fans, when it comes to Demba Ba, show that they have not forgotten that.

For Man City, sixth straight win in all competitions came when Silva’s golden goal was taken Jack GrealishReturn to Villa Park an extra location. Grealish’s pre-match reception was largely appreciated, although there were a few unfriendly gestures. The chorus of “Super Jack Grealish” rang out from the crowded corner of the visiting fans. But he was limited to a three-minute cameo, which began on the pitch with chants of “Villa ’till I die” and a few boos.

It was another occasion when City rarely needed him. They may be relatively short on numbers but they are a team with many potential goalscorers. Dias became their 17th player to find the net this season. The hole in the shape of Sergio Aguero in their goal was filled not just by one person but by almost everyone. If it brings the level of Dias to Harry Kane, the striker they hope to sign, on a Premier League target for the campaign, it also tied him to the £100m man.

On the bench, Grealish, who has vowed not to celebrate if he scores, smiles, perhaps in surprise as Dias sweetly connects with his swinging player, facing a save. by Raheem Sterling with a left-footed shot from 20 yards. It slipped after Emi Martinez.

Perhaps the culmination was then, when he was innocently beaten by a delicate, sensational volley from Silva. He picked up Gabriel Jesus’ pass to open a superb counter-attack, started by Fernandinho with a sharp pass from the edge of his box.

It’s an illustration The city comes with quality, if not quantity. On Guardiola’s bench there are 5 young players, 2 goalkeepers and a pair of central defenders Phil Foden and Grealish. City could have found the game more comfortable if he had felt confident to make the changes sooner but his starting number 11 was so capable that few would sympathize with him.

Ilkay Gundogan and Kyle Walker were unexpectedly absent, with John Stones, Kevin De Bruyne, Ferran Torres and Aymeric Laporte suspended among the missing, but City started with three shots in the first four minutes. It was such a statement of intent in a performance so powerful that it didn’t seem like they were willing to use the injury list as an excuse.

But Villa contributed much. Gerrard started with two of the trio bought with Grealish sales but Leon Bailey lagged. Emi Buendia, another Grealish-funded company, wasn’t successful but Villa still had the spirit. They looked to the side with confidence in the belief that they could return to a 2-0 lead and seemed gilded by their manager’s first-half talk with the team. Their goals provided proof of Gerrard’s good work on the training ground.

A professionally taken corner, Douglas Luiz found Ollie Watkins, whose volley denied Ederson’s half in his 100th clean sheet for City. Watkins is brilliant, as he was under Gerrard. Ederson had to make a brilliant save for Carney Chukwuemeka to equalize as he was brought on by Luiz.

That means City don’t need to worry about the chances Jesus missed. For Villa, however, their relentlessness speaks volumes to the faith Gerrard has instilled. They don’t tire but Silva proved to be an inspiration and that was the difference in the end.
