A Stroke of Luck

It would have been a draw. For once Manchester City would have taken one point home. Instead they took advantage of an opportunity which opened the doors to a late win against Norwich.

The fans were made to wait anxiously as the goals began to roll in midway through the second half. Manchester City took the lead when Otamendi netted a goal in the 67th minute! All three points were close to staying at the Etihad.

However, there were some complications. Jerome equalised for Norwich in the 83rd minute. As the goal came so late in the game, there was little sign of recovery.

Manchester City found a way, as they always do. A red card and a penalty kick. That was what they needed and that was what they got. Yaya Toure converted a penalty in the 89th minute to claim back the win that had been earlier stripped from them!

Manchester City remain at the top of the Premier League table. Arsenal have the same points as them, so it was a good thing they didn’t lose. The competition is only getting hotter!
