After losing 2-5, they drew a 1-1 draw with newly promoted Leeds United. After these two games, the Manchester City duo may really become Manchester City Double Bears. Think about the recent Bundesliga giants Bayern and Dortmund were abused, this year the five major league giants overturned or become the norm.
Tottenham have played a total of 1 English League Cup and 1 Europa League play-off and 2 Premier League games in the 7 days from September 27 to October 4, while Manchester United only played 1 English League Cup and Two Premier League games, from the perspective of the schedule, Spurs played one more game than Manchester United with one day off, but in the contest between the two sides, Spurs was the team that looked more physically fit. Manchester United has lost control of the situation on the field since the second minute of the game. After achieving a dream start, the opponent chased 6 goals in a row to complete a shocking reversal. If Sun Xingmin had not been replaced in advance, he might have won again. One chance to complete the big four.
This game fully exposed all the problems of Manchester United’s defense line. Manchester United’s defense on the left was like the main road at 3 in the morning. As Tottenham’s right back, Olier may not have played in his life. As comfortable as today, the huge gap turned the Tottenham players into De Bruyne. Throughout the audience, Manchester United did not have any stats except for more fouls than Tottenham. The ball possession ratio was 62%-38%, the number of shots was 22-5, and the number of shots was 8-2. From the data point of view , Manchester United’s threat to Tottenham hasn’t been the Israeli team’s Maccabido Haifa two days ago. The Israeli team’s Maccabi Haifa lost to Heat 2-7 in the Europa League play-offs on October 2. Thorn, the ball possession ratio of the two sides is 52%-48%, the number of shots is 23-13, and the number of shots is 13-6. If Maccabi’s opponent in the Europa League play-off match is Manchester United, they may be able to advance. Up.
As a team that is also in Manchester, Manchester City has had a hard time recently. After being beaten 5-2 by Leicester City at home last week, they went to the away game and were tied by newly promoted Malitz United. Who would have thought that The second in the Premier League of the season, now ranked 14 after the first three rounds. Guardiola's tactics seem to have been thoroughly understood by other Premier League teams, giving possession of the ball to Manchester City, and counterattack with peace of mind has become the best way for other teams to play Manchester City. Obviously this method is very useful. Take the game that Manchester City lost 2-5 to Leicester City as an example. Manchester City's possession rate is as high as 72%, but facing Leicester City's iron barrels, Manchester City seems a little weak. , Leicester City had only 7 shots in the game, and these 7 shots were all within the range of the goal frame. The inability to deal with the counterattack is now the goal of Manchester City.
Guardiola has spent £400 million on Manchester City's defense since taking office until now, but he has not even won a Champions League trophy. If no changes are made, Manchester City may continue to be upset. Manchester United have a total of 5 games in October, Newcastle, Paris, Chelsea, Leipzig, Arsenal, so it seems that Tottenham’s 6-1 seems to have just started.
