With 8 goals, including two in time, and football excitement until the last breath of the match, the confrontation between Chelsea and Manchester City in the 12th round of the English Premier League deserves the title of the best match of the season and one of the best in the history of the competition.
The match witnessed every minute a goal or an event, and the fans in the stands and the viewers behind the screens were forced to cling to their places and not leave except during the break between the two halves.
This match was not only entered into the history of the Premier League for its result and excitement, but also for the four goals scored against the “Citizens” during the era of Spanish coach Pep Guardiola, which began in 2016.
The Blues became only the fourth team to score 4 or more goals against the Heavenly Team under the management of the “philosopher coach”:
- Leicester City (2016): 4-2
- Everton (2017): Quadruple clean
- Liverpool (2018): 4-3
- Leicester City (2020): 5-2
- Chelsea (2023): 4-4
