The one who stopped the ‘monster’ Holland…”I was confident in my speed”
‘Monster’ Erling Holland defends. Felipe was confident.
Nottingham Forest recorded a 1-1 draw with Manchester City in the 24th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at the City Ground in Nottingham, England at 0:00 am (Korean time) on the 19th.
An easy win for Man City was expected. Both objective power and recent flow were ahead of Man City. Nottingham was in a slump with 2 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses in 6 official games, and Man City raised the atmosphere by defeating Aston Villa and Arsenal in a row. Also, in order to gain an advantage in the championship race against Arsenal, it was necessary to quickly accumulate points.
As expected, the match was dominated by Man City. Based on the soccer statistics media ‘Who Scored’, he recorded 73% of the possession and pressed Nottingham, and attempted to score 23 times. In the 41st minute of the first half, Bernardo Silva’s wonder goal took the lead and seemed to solve the game easily.
However, due to the lack of detailed finishing, the score difference could not be widened, which acted as a ‘burden’ for the players. The impatient Man City players allowed a goal in Nottingham’s counterattack at the end of the second half. Chris Wood, on loan from Newcastle United this season, has split Man City’s net. The match ended in a 1-1 draw.
It was a disappointing result for Man City. It was all the more so because the ‘main gun’ Holland was silent. In this game, Haaland had a shot that hit the post, but failed to score. He played full-time, but only shot twice. He had little influence. Whoscored gave Haaland a 6.2, the second lowest rating on the team. It was the result of being tied up in the Nottingham defense. 스포츠토토
The first contributor was Felipe. Felipe, who played as a stopper on the left side of the back four, marked Haaland exclusively for the entire 90 minutes. Every time he got the ball, he harassed him with active defense and never gave up space behind him. Based on ‘whoscored’, Felipe boasted tremendous defensive stats: 1 tackle, 4 interceptions, 10 clears, and 1 block. The GPA was 7.41, the best on the team.
The one who stopped the monster. Felipe told the secret. According to Nottinghamshire Live, Felipe said: “We already knew Haaland’s style. He’s physically strong and has a great ability to find space behind him.”
You covered this part well. Felipe said, “I told Renang Lodi that I wouldn’t be able to cover much, because I decided it would be better to stick with Haaland. I thought I could beat him in a race for speed. It was a good match,” he said.
