Manchester City refused to ease the pressure on the leaders, Chelsea, as they defeated West Brom 3-1. It has been made quite clear that claiming the title won’t be as easy as hoped.
Fernando gave Man City an early lead as he scored a goal in the 8th minute. West Brom weren’t even given the chance to notice the change before Yaya Toure converted a penalty just five minutes later!
Manchester City went on to claim another goal in the first half. Silva added a goal to the scoreline in the 34th minute. Snow showered down to celebrate their achievement of winning and being able to produce magnificent results without Aguero! West Brom were fortunate enough to be able to get one back as Ideye netted a goal in the 87th.
Christmas had been made special for City. Nevertheless, their wish for top spot hasn’t been granted and they can only hope that the new year will bring a more profound type of luck!
