‘It’s okay, Tomiyasu!’ Zinchenko, who ran from the other side and comforted me
From end to end. Oleksandr Zinchenko ran to comfort Takehiro Tomiyas.
Arsenal lost 1-3 to Manchester City in the 12th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Emirates Stadium in London, England at 4:30 am (Korean time) on the 16th. With this, Arsenal gave away the long-held토토사이트 first place to Man City.
It was like a ‘final match’ unfolding in the direction of winning. In fact, the candidates for the league championship this season have been narrowed down to two teams, and those two teams have faced each other. Arsenal built a solo system until the beginning and middle of the season, but recently dropped points and allowed Manchester City to pursue. We had yet to play one game less, but if we lost this game, we would give Manchester City first place for a ‘temporarily’.
With similar play styles, both teams came up with similar tactics. It was Arsenal who took the lead until the first half of the first half. As for the share, it recorded a share of close to 60% against Man City, which boasts the world’s best.
However, I was caught up in a ‘mistake’. In the 24th minute of the first half, Takehiro Tomiyasu, who was interrupted by Jack Grealish, failed to deliver a proper back pass, and Kevin De Bruyne intercepted it and cut Arsenal’s net with an elaborate shot. Fortunately, the pace was not lost and Bukayo Saka’s penalty kick came out in the 42nd minute to balance the game.
However, in the second half, a goal was allowed due to a situation stemming from a ‘mistake’. While some of Pep Guardiola’s tactical changes worked well, the result was a lack of detail in defense. In the end, Arsenal suffered a 1-3 defeat, conceding consecutive goals to Jack Grealish and Erling Haaland.
The culprit behind the defeat was Tomiyasu. It was a big mistake to make a mistake in the first half of the first half. Immediately after conceding the goal, Tomiyasu lowered his head as if he was blaming himself. In response, Zinchenko ran from the other side to comfort him and comforted Tomiyas face to face. It was a short moment, but it was a moment when ‘comradeship’ shined.
