In the 20th minute of today’s mammoth Premier League encounter between Chelsea and Manchester City, Oleksandr Zinchenko spelled danger with a nice pass into Kevin de Bruyne on the left-wing.
De Bruyne quickly threaded a through ball to Phil Foden, which Thiago Silva slid across to clear, but the ball spilled back into the Belgian playmaker’s path.
The Manchester City midfielder was then afforded the time and space to slot a low pass into Foden, who slotted the ball into the back of the net.
CITY DOUBLE THEIR LEAD! ??
In a matter of minutes Guardiola’s men have raced into a two-goal lead, as Foden casually sweeps it past Mendy.
