Fernandinho scores and City beat West Ham in a match with a lot of snow and -1 degrees Celsius - November 28, 2021

Manchester City and West Ham faced each other in the 13th round of the English Premier League in the city of Manchester Stadium And in a very crowded match, the hosts won 2-1, which is one of the goals of the Brazilian Fernandinho.

The city’s temperature fluctuated between -1 and 0 degrees according to the Met Office, the UK’s national weather service.

The victory makes the team led by coach Pep Guardiola reach 29 points and touch the leaders Chelsea, who have the same result, but are still playing against Manchester United in the round. Hammers are still in fourth place with 23 points.

City’s next game this season will be against Aston Villa away from home, as well as in the National Championship. The match will take place on December 1, the same day that West Ham host Brighton.

Best: Mahrez

The striker performed well, especially in the first half. Necessary for City to create chances, he ruled out a goal and also hit the post by goalkeeper Fabianski.

Worst: Antonio

In a nod to West Ham’s attack, Antonio produced little in the weekend’s game. Delivery on the field wasn’t a problem, but it didn’t bother goalkeeper Ederson and when he had the chance, in the first stage, he didn’t take the chance.

Snow is everywhere

Snow was a very prominent figure in Sunday’s duel, constantly falling during the match and taking control of the field lawn, and thus was an opponent of the players. However, the match was crowded thanks to the technical quality of both teams.

It started hot

Both teams knew the match was worth a lot (due to their close position in the table) which is why the match started so intensely for both sides. With 15 minutes of play, both teams created real goal-scoring opportunities, with Laporte Walker on the home side and Antonio on the London side.

Target, canceled more

In the 16th minute, City opened the scoring, but the goal was disallowed. Mahrez received a good pass, hit a cross and inflated Fabianski’s net. However, the assistant pointed out an offside and the VAR confirmed in the sequence the erratic position of the striker.

It was so worth!

The cancellation of Mahrez’s goal did not discourage the team led by Guardiola, who maintained the intensity and control of the offensive operations. Perseverance paid off. In the 32nd minute, Gundogan took advantage of the Algerian striker’s shot and sent it into the net, opening the scoring.

Almost from Jesus!

A few minutes into the goal, Manchester came close to expanding, this time with Brazilian Gabriel Jesus. He kicked the ball and the ball didn’t go in because Johnson, the West Ham defender, took it over the line. Soon another big opportunity with Mahrez, who hit Fabiansky’s post.

control for the second time

The second stage of the match was marked by City’s control, which increased their possession of the ball and virtually eliminated any chance of reaction from West Ham, who spent more time scoring than attacking.

A goal with a Brazilian touch

In the final stage of the match, the hosts expanded with Brazilian Fernandinho, who had just joined. Assistance was provided by fellow countryman Gabriel Jesus.
