Manchester City Claim Fourth Consecutive Premier League Title

By Score More & Agencies A 3-1 victory over West Ham secured Manchester City another Premier League title, their sixth since Pep Guardiola's arrival at the Etihad and their sixth in the last seven years.

There is an air of inevitability about Manchester City's Premier League titles. Whatever the journey, the stumbles, or the problems, everything seems to magically straighten out when the moment demands it, frustrating those who dream of ending a dominance that, in the last seven years, has only been interrupted by Liverpool in the pandemic season.

Manchester City Faces Familiar Territory with Four-Game Premier League Drought

By Score More Staff Manchester City's recent defeat at the hands of Aston Villa has left them in a rare predicament, marking their fourth consecutive Premier League game without a victory. This uncharacteristic downturn in form raises concerns for Pep Guardiola and the City faithful, who have become accustomed to their team's relentless dominance. The last time Manchester City experienced such a four-game winless streak in the Premier League was during Pep Guardiola's inaugural season in charge. Back in March 2017, City endured a challenging run that ultimately saw them finish in third place, a far cry from their usual title-chasing standards. Guardiola's debut Premier League campaign started on a high note with six consecutive wins. However, vulnerabilities in defense were exposed ...

Klopp Reacts to Manchester City’s Recent Setback: “Writing Them Off Would Be the Biggest Joke”

By Score More Staff Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has dismissed the idea of writing off Manchester City in the Premier League title race, calling it "the biggest joke in the history of football." Klopp's comments come in the aftermath of Manchester City's third defeat of the season, this time against Aston Villa, leaving them in fourth place in the league table. City's recent struggles have seen them go winless in their last four Premier League games, with their latest setback coming at the hands of Villa.

Premier League: Wolves 2-1 Manchester City

By Score More Molineux witnessed fire and fury as Manchester City's flawless record went up in smoke. In a tumultuous encounter, Matheus Nunes faced relentless jeering, Erling Haaland struggled to make an impact, and the reigning champions appeared surprisingly lackluster. Nunes inadvertently played into Wolves' hands, with the persistent and fierce jeering against the former Wolves midfielder Gary O'Neil adding to City's discomfort. The Brazilian midfielder was substituted at halftime, with Wolves already leading. It was a turbulent afternoon, marked by nine bookings and a post-match melee. This is precisely how you defeat a Pep Guardiola side, which looked noticeably weaker without Rodri. His absence in the upcoming match against Arsenal should be a significant concern for City. Wi...

Premier League: Man City 2-0 Nottingham Forest

By Score More Manchester City's scintillating form in the early stages of the season defies their usual trend of gradually finding their rhythm. This year, they've hit the ground running, resembling a team in peak form even in September, with a style of play that's almost reminiscent of their peak performance months later in the season. Nottingham Forest, their opponents, could only watch in admiration until a glimmer of hope emerged with Rodri's red card. Despite this setback, City managed to maintain control comfortably. One Forest supporter in the stands, frustrated with his team's performance, called out, "Come on Forest, work hard," but it wasn't a matter of effort for manager Steve Cooper's side. Facing an opponent that orchestrated an opening goal with an impressive 46-pass s...

Manchester City found themselves trailing for the second time in less than a week on Tuesday evening, conceding a goal just before halftime when Osman Bukari scored to give Crvena Zvezda a surprising lead at the Etihad Stadium. Bukari was played through on goal by Mirko Ivanić and remained composed when facing Ederson one-on-one. A VAR check confirmed that there was no offside. How...

Despite these contentious moments, City, guided by Haaland's brilliance, overcame the challenges with a resolute secon...

The match seemed to be heading for a draw, but Rodri scored a stunning goal late in the game, ensuring a 2-1 victory over Sheffield United away from home.
