The season 2019-20 has changed the panorama in England, where the Manchester City has happened of king to destronado. With a lot of months by in front, is not mathematical that in the Etihad Stadium have lost the train of the Premier League, but only a miracle would save them and, to complicate the equation, would have to arrive accompanied of a hecatombe in Anfield, something that to day of today the majority considers totally impossible.
Although it does not do so much, the 'sky blues' starred a traced back epic, now do not want to neither think in the distance with the Liverpool. The project directed by Jürgen Klopp advances wind in stern to all sail and only his own errors could condemn him -and would have to be a lot of-. From it does weeks, in the bank of the Mersey enjoy measuring an income that moves between the 10 and the 15 points, and that it could surpass them.
In these circumstances, even Pep Guardiola has surrendered to the evidence, in spite of that it does not renounce to improve to his. The 'citizens' no longer are so precise in attack and, especially, have lost defensive reliability, what turns them into an applicant that no longer intimidates to so many rivals. The half class and drop of the championship already dares to look for him the cosquillas and the worst is that every time they are more opponents those that achieve it.
"We have to follow. To this season still remain him a lot of parties for playing and have to treat to ensure the note to the next Champions", warned the one of Santpedor after the last 'prick' in front of Crystal Palace. The advantage on the Manchester United, perseguidor in places of Europe League, is considerable, but the affirmations of the technician reveal a painful change of aims of the still valid champion.
The City has a lot that say in this season
That the City have thrown the towel in the Premier does not mean that it go to remain in white, and is that it opts still to three trophies of maximum level. It does some months, already reconquistó the Community Shield, and has to shot revalidate so much the FA Cup -will play in fourth round against the Fulham- as the Carabao Cup -has to play the turn of semifinals against the United but carries advantage of 3-1 to Old Trafford-.
Besides, the career by the Champions will return in the month of February, with a decisive examination to know if it is smart to step forward. The draw wanted that his was one of the best eliminatory of eighth, since the crossing will be with a Real Madrid grown after a start of irregular campaign. The calendar dictates that the City has a lot that say, although it will have to speak on the terrain of game.
