Arsenal still shines, Manchester City frustrated, Gray’s gem, Rashford punished and heroic. For the last game of the year 2022 in the Premier League, Arsenal won on the pitch of Brighton (4-2). Immediately on the right pace, the Gunners were quickly launched by Saka (2nd). Afterwards, Ødegaard (39th) and Nketiah (47th) participated in the demonstration of the London club. If Mitoma (65th) and Ferguson (77th) have saved the honor, Martinelli (71st) has added the nail. With this success, Arsenal remains at the top of the standings with 7 points ahead of the 2nd place, Manchester City.
Manchester City failed to win against Everton (1-1). However, the Citizens opened the score by the inevitable Håland (24th) on a nice service from Mahrez. But in the second half, Gray (64th) equalized with a real gem before several decisive saves by Pickford. The Englishman was thrown in deep and took advantage of Mykolenko’s sharp call to clear Akanji in the box. With a powerful curling shot and the help of the crossbar, the former Leicester player surprised Citizens goalkeeper Ederson, who did not even dive.
Author of the winning goal against Wolverhampton (1-0) this Saturday in the Premier League, the Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford (25 years, 16 games and 6 goals in the Premier League this season) had started this game on the bench because of a disciplinary penalty. At the microphone of BT Sport, the England international explained this story.
“I was a little late for a meeting, I slept too much. These are the rules of the team and a mistake can happen. I was disappointed not to start, but I understood this decision. I am happy with the victory. I think we can draw a line under this and move on,” commented Rashford.
Scorer in the last three games of the Red Devils since his return from the World Cup, the Mancunian talent should quickly be forgiven.
