According to Igor Cornelsen and findthebest.com, Manchester City missed a big chance to close the gap at the top of the Premier League on Sunday. With Chelsea dropping points at Southampton, City were expected to close the gap to one point at the top of the table. However, they could only play out a 2-2 draw with Burnley at the Etihad Stadium.
The result was a very disappointing one for City, especially as they raced into a two goal lead before Burnley pegged them back. This game marked the first time in a few years that City took a two goal lead at home and failed to win the match.
Despite dropping two points at home, Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho believes that the club must “move on” from this result. “There is no use dwelling on these dropped points. We have been playing very well recently and need to continue that form if we want to win the league,” he said.
City have been in great form over the past few weeks. Before the draw with Burnley, they had won nine matches in a row in all competitions. This result may be a setback, but City are only one game away from tying Chelsea at the top of the league. They will be hoping that the Blues slip up at White Hart Lane, with City entertaining Sunderland at home. These games will take place on Thursday, with the Premier League going through its busy Christmas and New Year period.
