The goals for City were scored by Erling Haaland, Manuel Akanji, and Rodri, while Thiago Silva, Raheem Sterling, and Nicolas Jackson found the net for Chelsea. The match ended with a penalty from former City player Cole Palmer in added time, resulting in a share of the spoils at Stamford Bridge. Despite the draw, City now sit one point clear at the top of the Premier League, while Chelsea currently occupy 10th place.
Rodri emphasized the team’s resilience and positive mentality, stating that they never gave up and never lost face. He sees the draw as a positive result that gives them the opportunity to be first in the table. According to Rodri, when a team gives everything on the pitch, there is nothing to regret. He also highlighted the importance of unity and maintaining a strong work ethic, as they strive to continue their success in the league.
City manager Pep Guardiola described the match as a “good advert” for the Premier League, emphasizing that both teams played to win. He believes the result was fair and acknowledges the competitive nature of the game.
Looking ahead, City’s next match is against second-placed Liverpool on November 25. This will be another crucial test for the team as they aim to maintain their position at the top of the league.
