Well, who would have thought it, a center-back scoring an absolute wonder of a strike last night from 30-yards out? You’d of done well to pick that out in a bet…
With 20 minutes left on the clock, the defending league champions Man City needed inspiration in a crucial game to keep their advantage at the top of the table. Where would this inspiration come from?
An unlikely goal source proved the crucial moment in the contest. Man City’s long-serving captain Vincent Kompany popped up with a magnificent 30-yard strike, and one even his manager Pep Guardiola thought he should have passed the ball instead!
This was the 33-year-old’s first goal in a while and that showed the kind of leadership qualities the Belgian has brought to his side.
Despite the win, Man City was far from impressive and couldn’t break down a tough and relentless Leicester City side. The away side did hold out the current league champions until the 70-yard strike turned the tide in the favour of the Machester club.
Kompany’s 30-yard strike secured the vital three points for the title contenders, who are now just a single win away from retaining the title ahead of rivals Liverpool.
This goal surely has cemented Kompany’s legacy and is a man who was with City from their early days in 2008. His future is unsure at the club, due to the Belgian’s contract running out at the end of the season.
Iconic moments wins titles, is this the pivotal turning point in the title race? There is only one more game left in the title race.
The result leaves City one point ahead of Liverpool with one game to play, and Kompany can lift the Premier League title for the fourth time if City wins at Brighton on Sunday. Liverpool faces a fearless Wolves side in their last game.
Just one point separates the sides, with four goals the difference. One HUGE final day of action ahead this Sunday!
