In midweek, the Manchester giants beat Chelsea 2-0 at home to reach the last eight of the EFL Cup. A few days before, Erling Haaland netted at the death to give City a vital 2-1 victory over Fulham in the league.

EFL Championship Champions
Last weekend’s home league fixture with EFL Championship champions Fulham turned out to be far more stressful than Pep Guardiola was hoping for.
Things were going to plan when Julian Alvarez gave Man City an early lead, but Joao Cancelo’s 26th-minute red card threatened to turn the game on its head.
Andreas Pereira scored from the spot, but the prolific Haaland bagged a penalty right at the death to win the points for ten-man City.
