Manchester City wins, as Chelsea coach, Pochettino, leaves fans guessing over pre-match incident


Manchester City is back to its glory days after beating Newcastle in a match that ended 2-3 at St James’ Park on Saturday.

Newcastle opened with a clean 2-1 lead in the first half, with goals from Alexander Isak and Anthony Gordon that canceled Bernardo Silva’s 26th-minute goal.

However, the home team failed to hold on to their lead when Kevin De Bruyne returned from an injury and equalised the game with his goal.

The Citizens, known for seizing every opportunity, secured victory in stoppage time through Oscar Bobb.

The sky-blue team now stands second in the Premier League chart, two points behind Liverpool.

Meanwhile, Cole Palmer gave Chelsea a 1-0 edge over Fulham after scoring a penalty in added minutes to halftime at Stamford Bridge on the same day.

This victory is significant for the Blues as it places the team in 8th place in the Championship title race.

Nevertheless, Mauricio Pochettino alluded mysteriously to an occurrence that impacted his team.

According to a British media house, despite his team winning the match, Pochettino mentioned that something happened before the match that he could not explain.

When the media pressed him about the incident, he simply added: “No, no. Nothing. Nothing, sorry. It’s nothing big. Small details that sometimes affect the team. You need to know that something affected the performance in my opinion, but it’s not important for you or our fans to know, sorry.”
