Already off the hook at the head of the Premier, in which City and Liverpool remain intractable. And it has been precisely in the last few days that the blues have squandered their chances of competing: one win and two losses in the last three days. If it was painful for Brentford (1-4) before dealing with Madrid in the Champions League, last week’s derby against Arsenal (2-4) is not far behind. Now Tuchel’s men will have to fight to settle in that third place, as there is little difference with the teams that come from behind.
Ace to follow: Timo Werner. It seems that the German has rediscovered the goal. He has scored four in the last four games he has played. And also, handing out two assists.
