Alan Shearer gave an evaluation of Kevin the Brawiner’s opening goal scene.
Manchester City won 3-1 against Arsenal in the 12th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Emirates Stadium in London, England at 4:30 am (Korean time) on the 16th. Man City, who won three points, tied Arsenal on points and climbed to first place in the league with a lead on goal difference.
The protagonist of the opening goal that broke the tense flow of the game was The Bruiner. The Brawiner’s goal came from a mistake by Takehiro Tomiyasu. In the 24th minute of the first half, Tomiyas, who was trying to handle the ball from the right side, attempted a back pass to goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, but the pass was weak. De Bruyne, who snatched the ball, took advantage of Ramsdale’s empty goal and scored the first goal with a sharp shot. It was a moment of mixed joy and sorrow between Tomiyas and The Bruiner.
Afterwards, Man City allowed Bukayo Saka to equalize through a penalty, but Jack Grealish and Erling Haaland scored back-to-back goals to secure a pleasant victory.
After the game, Shearer evaluated De Bruyne’s opening goal scene. In particular, a harsh evaluation was given to Tomiyasu, who made a mistake that led to the first goal. Tomiyas, who provided an excuse for the opening goal that changed the course of the game, became the player who made the worst mistake.
Shearer said: “De Bruyne was really cool. It was an amazing finish, and he anticipated (the ball’s path) well. It’s a really, really difficult finish. He knows where he is and where the goalkeeper is and where he is heading. It’s like a world class finish. It’s a finish, but it was also a big mistake made by Tomiyas,” he praised The Bruiner’s finish and pointed out Tomiyas’ mistake.
Meanwhile, Manchester City’s win gives them a slight edge in the title race. The points are tied and Arsenal still have one game to go, but it’s quite encouraging that they won a head-to-head match for top spot. Also, Man City has one more head-to-head match against Arsenal, and as it is held at home, we will aim for victory in the first and second place matches again with the confidence gained from this match. 메이저놀이터
