Manchester City regains top spot in English Football League

Spanish coach Josep Guardiola’s men were only able to open the scoring in the second half, with goals from Algerian Riyad Mahrez in the 53rd minute, Phil Foden (65) and Portuguese Bernardo Silva (82).

With the victory, City adds 77 points and leads Liverpool by one, with only six games to go in the Premier League.

In another of the postponed matches, Arsenal, fifth in the championship, led Chelsea (third) 4-2, a result that brings the team led by the Spanish Mikel Arteta closer to qualifying for the next Champions League.

The Gunners achieved victory with two goals from Eddie Nketiah in the 13th and 57th minutes and one per capita from Emile Smith-Rowe (27) and Bukayo Saka from a penalty (90+2).

For the Blues, the German Timo Werner (m. 17) and the Spanish César Azpilicueta (32) drilled the nets.

Arsenal has 57 points, the same as Tottenham, fourth in the table and closing the Champions zone.

Thanks to a goal from the Brazilian Richarlison after 90 minutes, Everton (17th in the tournament) tied 1-1 against Leicester (9th), but the Toffees are still threatened by relegation, quite the opposite of Newcastle (11), winner this Tuesday 1-0 from Crystal Palace (14) with a goal from Paraguayan Miguel Almirón (m. 32).
