With the end of this year just days away British clubs are fighting to secure better positions on the board. After a turbulent season that culminated with their defeat in the match against Wolves last Friday, Manchester City finally came back with a victory at home. The club managed to defeat Sheffield United at home with a final score of 2-0 which leaves them in third place on the Premier League board.  

The first halftime of the match saw a more passive game and both of the teams didn’t manage to score a goal, finishing the half time at 0-0. The game intensified at the start of the second half, with Sergio Aguero managing to score the first goal of the match in the 52nd minute. This goal sparked some controversy since the referee Chris Kavanagh got in the way of John Fleck leading to Sergio Aguero’s opportunity.  

The match saw a pretty solid play and strong possession from Manchester City. Kevin De Bruyne finalized City’s victory scoring the second goal for the club in the 82nd minute of the match. This was City’s second-last match of the season, with Everton facing them on 31st December.
