A little more patience for Manchester City. The announced coronation of the Skyblues in the Premier League is delayed with the victory of Manchester United, this Sunday, over Aston Villa (3-1). There are three games to play in this championship for the players of Pep Guardiola, against four for the Red Devils, who are ten points behind the leader. After winning the League Cup at the end of April, City will therefore, barring a huge surprise, clinch a second trophy this season. And perhaps a third with the final of the Champions League to be played on May 29 against Chelsea.
Manchester United, for their part, are on course to end the season in second place. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are six points ahead of the Blues, so one game less. But she was not sovereign at Villa Park. Because it was the locals who opened the scoring thanks to a former resident of Ligue 1: Bertrand TraorÃ ©, scorer of a cross shot after having taken speed Victor LindelÃ¶f (24th) . Led to the break, Manchester United changed everything in four minutes after returning from the locker room. First with a penalty obtained by Paul Pogba and transformed by Bruno Fernandes (52nd). Then with a second goal signed Mason Greenwood (56th), came to confirm his good form of the moment.
Also on fire, Edinson Cavani is responsible for killing all suspense at the end of the match, with a pretty head stuck in the area (87th). His ninth goal in the league, the third this week after his double against AS Roma (3-2) in the semi-final second leg of the Europa League. The Red Devils are not going to have much time to breathe as they meet Leicester on Tuesday and then Liverpool on Thursday.
