Manchester City finally experienced their first Premier League defeat this season, when they visited Chelsea’s headquarters last weekend. The defeat made Pep Guardiola’s team stepped down from the top of the standings. But, there is still time for this defending champion to return to sit on the throne of the standings. On the 17th matchdays of the Premier League this weekend, Citizen will face Everton, where the match will be held on Saturday night, December 15, 2018.
As we said, Manchester City have just been swept away by their first Premier League defeat this season, after being beaten 0-2 at Stamford Bridge on the 16th matchday last weekend. The defeat was painful for Pep Guardiola’s team, moreover they were forced to go down to 2nd place, while Liverpool took over the standings with a record of 42 points, and are still unbeaten in 16 matches that have been going on.
But however, this defeat should not be responded to by the City with frustration, because of the fact there is still plenty of time and they can still take back the top ranking from the hands of Liverpool. Speaking on paper, Citizen is certainly better than Everton. They successfully packed 3 wins in their last five matches in all competitions, while the Toffees only packed 1 victory among them.
