Manchester City defeated Chelsea 1-0 on 21st May 2023 and handed the Arsenal fans, a major heartbreak. Notably, Arsenal were touted to be the champions of the Premier League for the majority of the campaign.

Phil Foden has been another incredible player for The CItyzens and he netted 10 goals in the Premier League 2022-23 season. The 22-year-old midfielder is one of the finest midfielders of our generation and he also has 6 assists under his belt.

Ederson who is City’s goalkeeper had an excellent season too and was amazing between the sticks. He has 11 clean sheets in the tournament and the shot-stopper saves several goals for Manchester City.

Ederson’s presence also took pressure off the defenders of Manchester City. In the defence, the likes of Ruben Dias, Kyle Walker and Manuel Akanji were superb with their performances.
