The Pep Guardiola team fits the first defeat of the 2019/2020 championship against a courageous Norwich.
He fought until the end of the City, but conceded the first defeat (3-2) in the 2019/2020 Premier League. The Norwich forced the team to row against the current with two goals in the first half. Agüero cut distances in the last action before the break, but the same local calmed the reaction. Rodrigo's first goal with City came too late.
Pep Guardiola warned that the Norwich was not newly promoted to use. A brave team that likes to play, which dominated the indomitable English second division last season and remains true to its principles among the best.
The premises were not locked despite the positional dominance of the City and the meeting turned in their favor, taking advantage of their first two arrivals to open a gap of two goals on the scoreboard. The first came at the exit of a corner kick, in an impeccable header from Kenny McLean. The second was scored by Todd Cantwell at pleasure against one.
In the last action before the break, Sergio Agüero headed a Bernardo center to the net. The so-called psychological goal did not obtain the expected effect after passing through the changing rooms.
An imprecision of Nico Otamendi in the construction allowed the locals to take possession of the ball at the edge of the area. Emiliano Buendía only had to serve the ball to Teemu Pukki so that the Finn, author of six goals so far in the championship and named Best Agostos Player, will freeze the team's spirits.
A little more than two minutes more added for the final, Rodrigo opened his scoring account with the City with a cross shot from outside the area. Sergio and Gabriel Jesus had occasions to save a point. Tim Krul intervened without complications to guarantee the three points for the Norwich.
Sergio Agüero's goal was unsuccessful this time and City left with empty hands from Norwich, but Kun continues to add records for the story in his own account. With the goal in Carrow Road, the Argentine has become the third player capable of scoring in the first five days of the Premier League.
Always him. @aguerosergiokun shorten the local advantage with a header.
