Man City and United Victorious in Premier League Match Day 3
Positive results arrived for two Manchester teams on their third English Premier League fixtures as both of them successfully grabbed all three points.
Manchester City snatched a dramatic 2-1 win over Bournemouth, while Man United continuing their perfect run so far by picking up a 2-0 victory against Leicester City at Old Trafford.
Following their disappointing draw against Everton last weekend, City were determined not to lose more points on their travel, but found themselves stunned when their opponent went one goal up after just 13 minutes through Charlie Daniels’ fine finish.
That lead was eventually canceled out though when Gabriel Jesus scored on 21 minutes, forcing both teams to settle for a 1-1 draw as they go into half time break.
In the second half, both sides continue to push forward in search for more goals, but it was City that eventually grabbed that all important winner thanks to a late strike from Raheem Sterling, who unfortunately saw himself sent off for his post goal celebration.
Meanwhile, the red side of Manchester can’t stop winning as just yet, though at some moment their fans might start to think it was close of happening this Saturday.
It was far from an easy game against Leicester, as Jose Mourinho’s men were held into a goalless draw until the first 45 minutes and even up until midway into the second period neither sides were unable to score.
The home team looked to be facing their first draw when Romelu Lukaku missed a penalty, but substitute, Marcus Rashford finally broke the dead lock on 70 minutes as his close range finish from a corner brought delight at Old Trafford.
Mourinho’s men secured their victory thanks to Marouane Fellaini’s effort eight minutes from time, giving his team another three points that keep them at the top of the table for now.
