The victory lasted only nine minutes for City when the referee sanctioned a push by Joao Cancelo inside the area and sent off the defender, awarding a penalty to Fulham. Andreas Pereira scored the equalizer for the visitors, and with Guardiola’s team with one less player on the pitch, the match began to lose aggressiveness. After the break, Álvarez came on in the 63rd minute and came in as his replacement Haaland, who had the equalizer at his feet, but the VAR annulled the play by advanced position. Only thirty minutes later, the Norwegian striker managed to put the Citizens up to reach the top of the tournament partially. Tomorrow, Arsenal – with one point less – visit Chelsea in search of returning to the leadership.
