Leicester – M. Metropolis: A genius from De Bruyne provides victory and management to a Metropolis with out Haaland

Erling Haaland missed his first recreation on the King Energy Stadium resulting from damage at Manchester Metropolis. Final yr he did not play 16 for Borussia Dortmund resulting from bodily issues… however that is one other story.

The Norwegian’s foot illnesses prevented him from touring to Leicester to proceed including to his Premier numbers (17 objectives in 11 video games). However they didn’t stop Pep Guardiola’s crew from profitable (0-1) and ‘grabbing’ the management with a degree of benefit over an Arsenal that performs towards Forest. Extra strain for the ‘gunners’.

The ‘cityzens’ survived earlier than some ‘foxes’ that bit. They did it because of a genius of Kevin De Bruyne. Julin Álvarez, who was the ‘9’ within the absence of Haaland, couldn’t beat Ward because the Belgian midfielder did. KDB nailed a free kick by the squad, which entered hitting the publish, uneven the crash.

Within the absence of Haaland… De Bruyne’s stratospheric free-kick aim

A hazard from afar

De Bruyne is the most effective ‘sniper’ within the Premier. Of the gamers who’ve scored greater than 50 objectives from exterior the world within the historical past of the event, solely Beckham (55% of objectives) and Eriksen (44%) have scored extra from distance than the Belgian (42%). His precision is excessive.

As much as that time a Metropolis arrived offensively that had plenty of ball, however that suffered (considerably) towards a Leicester that matches and scores quite a bit. That’s the reason it touches the relegation locations. Tielemans bumped into the crossbar and Iheanacho was the ultimate agitator who made the visiting protection ‘work’. In reality, Pep put in Dias as an alternative of Julin Álvarez to shut the victory. Metropolis had misplaced two of the 4 video games during which Haaland had not scored (each towards Liverpool). And the one one I did not play in (Copenhagen) was a zero. They needed to win in Leicester… and so they did. Now it is Arsenal’s flip.
