Manchester City’s victory with Burnley will be witnessed by the Blues as a good result after the Blues’ were successful in their pursuit to return to the summit of the Premier League.
For City to ensure they can recapture a third Premier League crown, they must start putting their errors behind them and learn from their constant mistakes.
The contest opened with Burnley dominating proceedings, and their determination, intensity, and aggression caused havoc for City in the opening stages.
After a controversial penalty decision was waved away for reasons unbeknownst to everyone, they finally managed to open the scoring on 14 minutes. Dean Marney’s beautiful volley from the edge of the box gave Burnley a deserving lead.
City’s pressure after going behind reaped its rewards as Aguero managed to get City back in contention on 38 minutes, prodding home from five yards out to ensure City went into half-time level.
Shortly after half-time, arguably the scrappiest goal of the Premier League season occurred as Aguero bundled home the winner after some kamikaze defending from Burnley.
The result cannot be underestimated, but City does have some progression to make. Here are four things we learned from Saturday’s contest.
