Stoke City’s recent fight with Manchester City was an ultimate evidence of the team’s determination. They’ve put potential damage to Premier League’s top 3 after holding Manchester City to a goalless draw.
The Potters may be distant from front runners but the performance they have shown has earned them plenty of credit. Moreover, Ryan Shawcross was the man of the match who helped his team to stand out along with Sergio Aguero to name a few.
The Blues upheld their domestic league ranking as they beat the stubborn Manchester United with 1-0 goal. Man of the match N’Golo Kante’s low 51st minute drive finally ended the deadlock which also marked the defeat of the opposition.
It was a good performance against a really strong team with really good players. It’s probably even safe to say that United has one of the best squads within the Premier League. But with a new obtained success, Conte and his men could not contain how please his team is as they move forward to meeting another club in the next round of competition.
