Forget Real… A match that could deal a fatal blow to Man City’s treble
Jamie Carragher predicted that Everton could deal a fatal blow to Manchester City’s treble challenge.
Everton and Man City will face off in the 36th바카라사이트 round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season, which will be held at Goodison Park in Liverpool, England on the 14th at 10:00 pm (Korean time). Currently, Everton are 17th in the league with 32 points, while Man City are in first place with 82 points.
As the season draws to a close, the competition intensifies. Especially if the team is competing for a title or a ticket to European competition, or struggling to get out of the relegation zone. Coincidentally, both Everton and Man City are in this situation. Everton’s goal is to widen the gap from the relegation zone and confirm their retention, while Man City’s goal is to beat Arsenal and get closer to winning the league.
In particular, Man City is challenging the ‘treble’ that aims to win the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) and England Football Association Cup (FA Cup) in addition to the league this season. Currently, Manchester City is preparing for the second leg at home after drawing 1-1 in the first leg of the UCL semi-final against Real Madrid, and preparing to face Manchester United in the FA Cup final. If Manchester City win the treble this season, they will become the second English club to have won the treble since Manchester United in 1998-99.
It is argued that the team that can break Man City’s will is Everton. Carragher said in a column for the British ‘Telegraph’ that Everton would be a tricky opponent for Manchester City, saying, “Everton could be the toughest test to prove whether Man City deserves the treble.”
Everton, who are competing in the relegation zone, dreams of a dramatic stay. With clear motivation, they won 5-1 in the previous match against Brighton. It happens every season when a team in the relegation zone piles up points at the end of a season. It is argued that Man City may be caught up in Everton’s pace.
In addition, Everton is led by coach Sean Dyche, who prefers counter-attacking football after player fees, which Man City is picky about. Although Man City’s recent performance is overwhelming, it is Man City that can not be vigilant as the saying that the ball is round.
