Zapping World Eleven CAN 2021: the expectations of the Algerian people
Chelsea is holding on! In an intense and rhythmic first half, the Blues were overwhelmed by the onslaught of Pep Guardiola’s men. Jack Grealish notably had a huge opportunity to open the scoring at the end of the first period, but Kepa Arrizabalaga intervened perfectly to deflect the shot for a corner.
A little earlier, Kévin De Bruyne had also tested the vigilance of the Spanish goalkeeper, holder in the absence of Édouard Mendy, who left for the African Cup of Nations. As for Thomas Tuchel’s men, they show themselves dangerous on the counter-attack but struggle to hold the ball.
Chelsea and Manchester City are back to back at the break on behalf of the 22nd day of the Premier League. Pep Guardiola’s men dominate but struggle to find the loophole in Chelsea’s well-organised defence.
