Chelsea showed Courage Against Manchester City To Keep The Scoreline 1-1

Sterling scored the first goal for Chelsea against Manchester City to pick one point against the defending champions.

The Premier League is the best football league in the world because of the type of matches that happen in the league. No team is weak here. Even if the team is sitting at the bottom of the table, they can still defeat the top leader or draw, which happened in the last match when the struggling Chelsea club held a draw with defending champions Manchester City to make it hard for them to win the league titles this year.

Chelsea is one of the teams who can defeat anyone on their day and can lose to anyone on their off day, but against Man City, they woke up and decided to show their real strength. The way they defended and created so many open chances which should have been converted into goals is amazing, but still, it was way behind the level of what Chelsea is known for because, in the last match, they had only 29% of possession, which gave a lot of time for the Chelsea player to attack them.

It was a rare day off for Haaland when he had 8+ chances to score a goal but failed to put even one in the whole 90 minutes of the match. Manchester City took 31 shots, of which only five were on target, and had 71% of possession. That clearly shows that the efforts Chelsea defenders made were immense, which is why the player of the match was given to Axel Disasi, who found his foot in the Chelsea defense. Sterling scored the goal for the Chelsea side against his ex-club, and Rodri got a lucky goal to save the City.

Chelsea had a great last three matches in which they defeated Aston Villa in the League Cup by a 3-1 scoreline and then defeated Crystal Palace by 3-1, gave them enough confidence to draw against the Man City team in the last Premier League match on Sunday, 18th 2024.

One of the most important matches for Chelsea will be on Monday when they face Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final because they have only this chance to win something in the season as they are already out of contention to finish even the top six. The only target Chelsea should have is to win the Carabao Cup to qualify for the UEFA Conference League next season, so they will have at least something to fight for next season.
