(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Ahn Hong-seok = English professional soccer Manchester City (Man City) has only one win left to win the Premier League (EPL).
Man City won 3-0 against Everton in the 2022-2023 EPL round 36 away match held at Goodison Park in Liverpool, England on the 14th (Korean time).
Leading Man City, who had won 11 consecutive wins, accumulated 85 points and widened the gap with Arsenal in second place (81 points), which lost 0-3 to Brighton on the day, to 4 points.
Arsenal has only two games left in the 37th and 38th rounds, and Man City will play three more matches, including a 32nd round match against Brighton.
Even if Man City only wins one win in these three games, it will win the ninth division 1 championship and win the EPL three times in a row on its own.
Man City also has the possibility of achieving a treble (three crowns) by advancing to the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) and the FA Cup final of the English Football Association.
Man City stayed in 2nd place after being pushed by Arsenal until the middle of this season, but regained 1st place at the last minute.
Man City took the lead in the 37th minute with Ilkay Gundogan’s goal, and in the 39th minute, Gundogan’s help followed by Elling Hollan’s header made it 2-0.
Hollan, who scored his 36th league goal this season, broke his own record for the most goals in a single EPL season.
In the 6th minute of the second half, Gundoan scored a multi-goal for Manchester City to seal the victory.
Gundogan scored two goals and provided one assist.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said, “It’s like a dream to come this far,” but he did not let down his guard, saying, “But the league is not over.”
Arsenal, who played against Brighton with the slightest hope of a reversal, collapsed by conceding three goals in the second half.
In the 6th minute of the second half, he was shaken by conceding a goal to Julio Enciso.
Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta acknowledged the reality of a ‘mismatch’, saying, “Mathematically, a come-from-behind victory is still possible, but it seems impossible to think of a come-from-behind victory today.”
