Noel Gallagher Rues Missing The Last Two Minutes Of The Game
Gallagher ran into Guardiola as he left the stadium. He didn’t want to bother Pep during his moment in the sun. Noel Gallagher said that Pep asked him about his condition and the City manager to be with his players. He said that it looked like he had just returned from a game at Elland Road in the eighties when the rivalry between Manchester United and Leeds United led to many injuries.
Gundogan, the German midfielder, turned out to be the difference as his two goals made the difference. Manchester City was behind with goals from Philippe Coutinho and Matty Cash. The title appeared to be slipping from their hands before Gundogan and Rodri turned the game and the championship on its head with three goals in a little over 5 minutes.
