Manchester City vs. Lyon - Football Match Report

20 September 2018

A move from the back nearly led to Sterling giving City the lead but a minute later, Lyon went ahead when a cross from the left was not dealt with by Fabian Delph and Cornet sent a half-volley into the bottom corner from a tight angle.

Using their data, we can reveal the estimated values of every player in the current City squad, and it is an incredible list.

Fekir, who was strongly linked with a move to City's Premier League rivals Liverpool in the close season, then made it 2-0 to the French side in the 43rd minute, bursting clear and beating Ederson with a low drive after Fernandinho had given up possession in midfield.

Arteta claimed his side's reaction in the second half was superb, not an adjective that many Mancunians present would have selected, although he was probably correct in saying City created more chances after the interval than before it, even if that was not saying a lot. The creativity was there for much of the match, and with Hoffenheim and Shakhtar Donetsk drawing, City is just in a one-point hole and will be favored to win its remaining matches.

Arteta, linked with the vacant Arsenal manager's job following Arsene Wenger's departure, insisted City were ready for the game.
