Make a note of it!


Manchester City prevailed 1-0 over Chelsea in the Premier League matchup on Sunday.

The city’s only goal came from Gabriel Jesus, and they came away with all three points.

Aston Villa defeated Manchester United thanks to a missed penalty by Bruno Fernandes.

Manchester City defeated Chelsea 1-0, while Manchester United was humiliated by Aston Villa after Bruno Fernandes missed a last-gasp penalty.

City ended their losing streak to Chelsea with a 1-0 victory over the European champions on Saturday, while Bruno Fernandes missed a last-gasp penalty as Manchester United fell to Aston Villa in an unexpected defeat. Pep Guardiola’s men needed a second-half goal from Gabriel Jesus to beat Chelsea and avenge their three previous defeats at the hands of the Londoners, the most recent coming in last season’s Champions League final. In addition to Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester United, the defending champions now have 13 points after beating Aston Villa 1-0 and missing a penalty kick that would have given them the lead.

Chelsea’s record signing Romelu Lukaku and Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo both have weapons in the box that can help their teams win games.

Brazilian forward Jesus, however, was the difference-maker for City, who could have won by more margin had it not been for some impressive last-ditch defending and wasteful finishing.

In the opening minutes, City dominated Chelsea, who had been unbeaten in all competitions so far this season. Aymeric Laporte’s header went just wide with City on the attack.

After Jorginho’s deflection allowed Jesus to get the break City deserved to open the scoring, Edouard Mendy was caught off guard.

The visitors had numerous opportunities to extend their lead. Thiago Silva’s goal-line clearance denied Jesus a second after Jack Grealish had drawn a fine save.

Guardiola told the BBC, “Sometimes we believe we need a proper striker to finish, but the important thing is the way we play.

“Doing it as a team and as a unit is critical. It’s the same as last year. Although Sergio (Aguero) was sidelined for much of the year, we still managed to win the Premier League.

PSG and Liverpool are on tap for us this week, and we’re off to a good start thanks to this win.”

Fernandes is out of the picture.

When Aston Villa played Manchester United previously in the Premier League, they had a dreadful record of one win and 33 losses.

In the beginning, United had the upper hand, but Villa had two excellent chances to go in front. Matt Targett’s close-range volley went wide, while Ollie Watkins came perilously close to troubling David de Gea.

Harry Maguire and Paul Pogba both had chances for the hosts, but Hause buried Douglas Luiz’s corner with two minutes left.

In stoppage time, Hause gave away a penalty for handling a cross, but Fernandes missed the target from the spot, despite his track record from the spot.

It was only United’s second missed a penalty in their last 23 attempts.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that Aston Villa’s goal was offside and criticized the way Fernandes was surrounded before his penalty. Solskjaer’s team has lost three of their last four matches in all competitions.

To begin, he expressed his displeasure with the manner in which they approach the penalty spot, including how they go around Bruno and such. “Bruno usually does a great job in those positions, but he squandered this opportunity.

“Bruno is immune to the influence of it. He’s mentally tough, and he’ll take another step forward. Before the game, the decision is made (on who will take penalties).”

Coach Dean Smith said the victory at Old Trafford had given his team a huge boost of confidence.

“We came here and went toe-to-toe with Chelsea,” he said. Despite the fact that they had more opportunities than we did, those opportunities were of a lesser magnitude, and we took advantage of them and earned the victory.

Reds are three points ahead of second-place Brentford with a win at Brentford on Saturday night.

Norwich, who has no points from five games, will be desperate to get off to a winning start against Everton at 1400 GMT, while Leicester needs to get back to winning ways after two consecutive losses in the 1400 GMT kick-offs.
