Manchester City scored three exquisite goals in the first half of Thursday night’s game against Arsenal, practically putting the tie to bed by half-time. The second half, other than Ederson saving a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penalty, was largely a non-event, but Blues are still buzzing about the goals.
One goal that in particular highlighted Pep Guardiola’s philosophy was a sublime team move that ended with Leroy Sané cleverly cutting in front of Héctor Bellerín to finish.
And a new video shows the high level of technical quality and passing involved in a move that led to an easy finish for Leroy. In total, the build-up had 18 uninterrupted passes, 1.74 touches per player, and a total of 6 players involved.
It really was a masterpiece, evidence of what Guardiola has built at City.
