Man City comeback, Liverpool’s 9-0 win, light up Premier League weekend

By Oviri Kelvin, Sports Editor

Manchester City pulled an extraordinary fightback against Crystal Palace at Etihad Stadium to comeback from 2 goals down to seal a 4-2 win at regular time.

In the spotlight for Pep Guardiola was newbie Erling Haaland who was stunning to record his first hattrick for the club in the second half.

Crystal Palace got an early lead when Manchester City defender John Stone conceded a 4-minute own goal.

Surprisingly, the Eagles doubled their lead against last season’s Premier League champions when Joachim Andersen slotted in an assist from English-Nigerian Eberechi Eze in the 21st minute.

However, City in the second half, became more aggressive, dominating the play to get the first goal from Bernardo Silva which heralded the end for coach Patrick Vieira’s team and the crack of the flood of goals for the Norwegian.

Still trailing behind by a goal difference, Haaland responded squarely to tally the scoreline for City and kept his eagle eyes open to capitalise on rare opportunities.

With much alacrity, the striker turned the game around with a 70th and 81st-minute goals to hand City a comfortable 4-2 win.
