It makes sense that Chelsea fans were anxious before this match, but Mauricio Pochettino’s team soon showed the enthusiasm required to demonstrate that they were ready to battle throughout the match.

Furthermore, The Blues shown their ability to pose a threat to Pep Guardiola’s team when they broke. But beyond those initial moments, there was a deficiency in quality as both Raheem Sterling and Nicolas Jackson blew excellento opportunities.

However, at the Etihad Stadium, it was those same two players who combined to score the first goal. Jackson released his other England teammate in the middle after a fantastic one-two with Cole Palmer.

When the former Manchester City winger was released one-on-one with Ederson, he did not exactly cover himself in glory, but this time he made no mistakes with a curling finish into the far corner.

Throughout the game, the visitors rode their luck at the other end of the field, letting many enormous Erling Haaland opportunities pass by. Nevertheless, Pochettino’s team played outstanding defense, with Axel Disasi leading numerous strong interventions.

But Chelsea became weary as the game went on. With multiple defensive substitutions, Pochettino tried to shut down the opposition, but it just gave the hosts more opportunity to exert pressure, which ultimately resulted in an equalizer.

A ball into the Chelsea box was cleared to the edge of the box, whereupon Rodri thundered in a deflected strike to steal a point.

Although Pochettino’s players showed some significant improvement in the match, they were ultimately forced to settle for a draw after failing to overcome the reigning Premier League champions.
