Below-par Manchester City salvage a point against Chelsea

A below-par Manchester City rallied from behind to secure a point against Chelsea in the last fixture of the Premier League on Saturday.

Chelsea missed a number of open chances in the first half as they tore apart a horrible Manchester City defense, promising a better outcome as time went on.

Jackson who was one on one with Ederson saw him fumble with the ball on his feet before it was taken away by the goalkeeper. Erling Haaland also missed a glorious opportunity as his header went wide.

The Blues continuous attack paid off when Jackson squared the ball to Sterling who comfortably went past Kyle Walker and clipped it to the net to give them a lead just before half time.

In the second half, Manchester City put up a spirited fight but Erling Haaland was kept in the shadows and Kevin De Bruyne could not make his famous pin point passes yield any goal.

Doku who was sitting in for Greelish also had his crosses fall of the mark forcing Pep Guardiola to bring in Bernardo Silva to get the job done. Rodri’s strike brought hope to the host but it was late to mount a comeback.

The results leave Manchester City in third position with 53 points, two points behind Arsenal and four behind league leaders Liverpool. Chelsea settled on 10th position with 35 goals.
