report:Phil Foden Has been suspended today and He’s no longer playing for Manchester City till January…

Manchester City ended their recent losing run by taking down RB Leipzig 3-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday.

 

After falling to Newcastle and Wolves in Premier League action, the Citizens looked set for a comfortable evening after Phil Foden fired them in ahead in the first half.

Lois Openda’s equalizer with RB Leipzig’s first shot on goal changed that, however late goals from Julian Alvarez and Jeremy Doku were enough to see City maintain their perfect record in the competition.

 

How Man City earned victory in Leipzig

City controlled much of the early possession and should have taken the lead after Rico Lewis found space in the box near the 20-minute mark. His shot was blocked and came out to Foden, whose ball to Bernardo Silva at the far post should have been finished, only for the Portuguese to shin the effort wide of the mark.

 

However, Pep Guardiola’s men wouldn’t have to wait long for the opener as it finally came in the 25th minute. Lewis played a one-two with Silva before cutting the ball back to Foden, who fired home his 11th Champions League goal from inside the box.

 

RB Leipzig offered little in terms of chances despite being behind, with City looking very comfortable despite being up by just one at the break.

 

That’s what made RB Leipzig’s equalizer minutes after the restart all the more surprising. Jack Grealish’s poor pass allowed the hosts to break, with Openda holding off a defender before firing home what was the German’s first shot on target.

 

 

City began to step things up as the half progressed and very nearly took the lead through Foden, only for his freekick to come back off the crossbar, while Erling Haaland’s strike was held by Jani

s Blaswich.
