The month of December for many represents a time of peace, joy, and drunkenness, for the City is quite the opposite, although after losing 2 matches in a row and being 7 points behind Liverpool a drunken stupor would not hurt.
Three defeats of the English champion in the last four days tells us the bad moment that crosses the whole of Guardiola, touched on the psychic plane: «We have to help them to regain confidence,» said the Catalan coach yesterday.
In the Christmas match Manchester City, opened the scoring with a goal from the Portuguese Bernando Silva in the 14th minute of the first half, after an assist from Agüero, but Leicester turned it around with the goals of the Englishman Marc Albrighton at minute 19, after a center of Vardy and the Portuguese Ricardo Pereira 10 minutes to go. The Right back Ricardo Pereira took a rebound from a corner kick, took a cross from outside the box and goalkeeper Ederson Moraes could do nothing to stop it. For the end, the «citizens», led by the Catalan Josep Guardiola, ended with ten players for the expulsion of Englishman Fabian Delph to 88′, which ended the match for Leicester.
The City after his bad run, fell to third place in the standings, behind the leader Liverpool and Tottenham of Pochettino. The team of Pep is paying the lack of effectiveness, without Agüero for several weeks, to a Gabriel Jesus who lacked that point of maturity that is required to assume the responsibility of the goal. Beyond the two that scored against Everton, the young Brazilian has not yet taken the step forward that was expected. With the ‘Kun’ back but without the competitive pace of before, City clings to the Argentine international to get out of this small crisis.
