Manchester City’s 19th Straight Win Says It All, Really

Manchester City reached the preposterous milestone of 19 straight wins across all competitions following Wednesday’s 2-0 Champions League Round of 16 “away” victory over Borussia Mönchengladbach. Goals either half from Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus turned it into a training exercise at Puskás Aréna in Budapest as Gladbach only landed one shot on target. 

The Numbers Don't Lie When It Comes To Ranking Premier League Goalkeepers

Life as a goalkeeper is difficult. A keeper can have fantastic game, but if one ball gets past them, they receive all of the blame.

Stats like goals against or save percentage have been used haphazardly to evaluate goalkeepers for years, but they fail to paint the whole picture.

For instance, if a goalkeeper plays behind a good defense they will be expected to allow fewer goals. Conversely, if opposing teams keep hitting top-corner screamers, the keeper allows goals that they can do little to prevent.

Zack Steffen, Jordan Morris And Paul Arriola All Feature In Man City Vs. Swansea

An FA Cup last-16 tie between Premier League leaders Manchester City and Championship promotion hopefuls Swansea took on significant importance stateside on Wednesday as USMNT No. 1 Zack Steffen started in goal for City while Seattle Sounders loanee Jordan Morris got his first Swansea start and D.C.

This often leaves current players wishing they had played in a previous decade and former players wishing their career had started a little later. Ah, what could have been.

Alisson Goes Full Loris Karius To Effectively End Liverpool’s Title Defense

Fireworks Land On Field, Causing Delay In Man City’s FA Cup Match

Most expected to see fireworks when Manchester City visited third-division Cheltenham Town in the FA Cup on Saturday. Few expected they would be literal fireworks.

The FA Cup fourth-round match, which the Premier League side rallied to win 3-1, was suspended for five minutes late in the first half as a fireworks spewed above Jonny-Rocks Stadium on Saturday. The referee halted proceedings as some of the sparks actually landed on the pitch. Fortunately, nothing caught on fire, even if players were left bemused by the display.

Man City To Use Bar As Locker Room Ahead Of Cheltenham Town FA Cup Clash

Manchester City players will be getting changed in the bar at Cheltenham Town's stadium when they visit for an FA Cup clash on Saturday, but their fourth-tier hosts aim to make Pep Guardiola's men as comfortable as possible, manager Michael Duff said.

City, whose market value is estimated at over 950 million pounds ($1.3 billion) by specialist website Transfermarkt, play its fourth-round clash at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium where away teams have used the Victory Bar as a changing room during the COVID-19 crisis.

Was This Manchester City Goal Offside? World Weighs In On Controversial Call

Manchester City’s first goal in its 2-0 Premier League victory against Aston Villa on Wednesday will go down as one of the most controversial goals of the season.

A goal had yet to be scored heading into the final 11 minutes of normal time. Controversy struck when a City player headed the ball up the field to no one in particular. The only City player nearby was Rodri standing in an obvious offside position.
