It only took 22 minutes of playing time before Man City sealed another game and back at the top of the Premier League. Many would expect such result considering that Wigan Athletic lies at the bottom of the table. Yet they played a descent and tight game last night and made Man City players sweat out real hard with a 1-0 win.
Dzeko’s timely and precise header at 22 minutes of the game found the back of the net that became the only goal of the match. And the gap between the second and third spot starts to open up a little bit and could be stretched farther when they (Tottenham) face Man City at Etihad Stadium. More so that the odds are not at their side as Man City has still to taste defeat, unbeaten in the last 10 games at their own turf this season.
Lazio and Inter’s game on Sunday 22 January is crucial for both teams. As Lazio’s loss last January 7 became a big blow as it closes the gap and Inter is knocking at its door with only a point that separates them now. An Inter win will knock off Lazio in the fourth spot and Inter’s loss will widen Lazio’s gap by at least four points. Udinese and Milan on the other hand, will try to bounce back from its own defeat though they will face a separate foe. Milan will take on bottom dweller Novara and Udinese will face struggling Catania.
