Manchester City is back in action in the Premier League, and the Citizens have kick-started the campaign in style. QNET is thrilled to be supporting Manchester City in what could be one of their best seasons yet.
QNET partnered with Manchester City in 2014 as the official direct selling partner. During the partnership, QNET has supported Manchester City’s success in the Premier League, as they were crowned the Champions of England on four occasions. Including a successful campaign last year that saw them lift the title for the third time in the last four years.
The stage is set again with some of the best teams going head-to-head, and Manchester City players have made a great start to the campaign.
Manchester City start the season with goals galore
The Premier League commenced on August 13, and Manchester City kicked off its campaign against Tottenham in the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Things didn’t go as planned as City trailed to a Son Heung-min goal, and Spurs prevailed 1-0 in a tough match.
Manchester City players weren’t going to just sit back after that game. They picked themselves up and came back in blistering style against Norwich and Arsenal.
Ten goals in the next two games for Manchester City
Manchester City made a roaring return in their second game against Norwich with a thumping 5-0 win. Gabriel Jesus got the ball rolling with a decisive cross to force an error for the first goal. The ball bounced off Tim Krul as Norwich conceded an own goal. Jesus was on hand again, squaring the ball off for the superstar summer signing, Jack Grealish, who scored his first goal for the club.
Aymeric Laporte scored the third goal with a close-range finish. Cruising at 3-0, Sterling and Mahrez added their names to the score sheet to complete the scoring spree. A great match for the Manchester City players!
A fixture against Arsenal followed this game. The Citizens had a great track record against the north London side going into the fixture, winning nine of their previous ten games. So, Manchester City were the favourites to win the match.
Arsenal began the game with great intensity. However, City took full control of the match as the game progressed. Gundogan scored the first goal with a thumping header past Arsenal goalkeeper, Leno, to give City the lead. Ferran Torres added to the score sheet by converting a close-range finish.
Jesus scored his first goal of the season shortly after that, before Rodri made it 4-0 for the home team with a brilliant side-foot finish. Torres capped off a perfect performance, scoring his second of the evening.
Formidable defence against Leicester City
Manchester City players were in great form with back-to-back 5-0 victories. However, their next game was against Leicester City. They had proven to be tough opponents in recent times, which included a narrow win for them in the Community Shield.
The game started with both the teams playing strategically to maintain parity. In the second half, City broke the deadlock with Bernardo Silva scoring his first goal of the season. While the previous games showcased City’s attacking flair, this game showed their defensive resoluteness.
A touch of class against Chelsea and Liverpool
The games against Chelsea and Liverpool produced some of the best performances from the Manchester City players. The game against the Champions League opponents, Chelsea, was a true battle of wits. Both the teams were locked at 0-0 going into half-time.
However, City emerged victorious with an excellent goal from Gabriel Jesus early in the second half. Manchester City remained resolute throughout the game, not allowing a single shot on target.
The game against Chelsea was quickly followed by an encounter against title rivals, Liverpool. After a tough 2020/2021 season, they were back to their very best, scoring at least three goals in their previous three matches.
