Many argue that Manchester City, with it`s difficult but important 1-0 victory over Leicester at “Filbert Street” on Monday night, will again be the Premier League champion, and may have a trial.
Pep Guardiola’s footballers are real against the home team Leeds of Brendan Rogers, who has taken care to guard as much as possible. So despite the possession of a ball by City players, they did not manage to threaten Kasper Schmeichel ‘s fire, albeit a few times. In one of them, the not-too-tall-for goalkeeper-Kasper made an excellent retreat, keeping his home intact.
Guardiola’s players, of course, continued to repeat their own complicated play with the triangles and passes of the opponents when they had free space in front of them. The layout of the Leicester players was very well organized and caused many problems to the guests seeking ways to get closer the smokehouse of Smiley.
Same initial team
Guardiola, once again in recent games, gave young children such as Foden and Zinchenko the chance to show what they can offer. Both of them despite their inexperience went quite well. The first one even shows how everything has gone well enough. His left leg is wonderful. He fits his teammates correctly, and when he gets the chance he is promoted and shot.

Sane is excellent from a technical point of view, with a marvelous left leg, which allows him to dribble one and two opponents and create a rift in the opposing defense.
Sane out, Kompany in
Of course, Pep put him in the battle in the second half and the change was immediately apparent. But this is something that cannot go unnoticed. Sane is not left on the bench when he is one of the best of the club and can judge a game at any time. Guardiolla is not doing well here and he should be told by his partner, Arte for the good of the City. The delayed use of Shane seemed to be a great deal in the UEFA Champions League games, especially against Tottenham …
In any case, Manchester City managed a lightning strike by its captain, Vincent Kompany in 70 ‘to beat Leicester 1-0 and now see the title clearly. Besides, on Sunday in Brighton, Guardiola’s players have every reason to believe they will overtake their opponent and will add the title for the second consecutive season.
However, it is a fact that with the end of the championship, Guardiola and his teammates will have to sit together at a table and look at what went wrong, not in the championship but in Europe, which for a second season they were very good at early …
