A year without an Etihad loss was ensured by goals from Rodrigo and Julian Alvarez in our first home match following our title as Champions of the World.

In the 14th minute, the Spaniard broke the tie with a well-placed finish from 20 yards, and an elegant move by Alvarez on the hour marked the completion of the points.

The most impressive example of our dominance was probably the staggering 938 passes we completed, which is only second in Premier League history to our 942 against Swansea City in 2018.

It’s a welcome three points for Pep Guardiola’s team after draws in our previous three Premier League home games.

After winning the Big Five trophies in 2023, this victory puts us two points behind Liverpool in the Premier League at the halfway mark of the 2023–2024 campaign.

There was a celebration to start the afternoon, followed by some introspection.

The crowd at the Etihad was first shown all five of City’s trophies along with enormous banners commemorating the victory.

A moment of silence was observed for anyone connected to either club who passed away in 2023 after that.

From the start of the match, City led all early runs.

After just two minutes, Julian Alvarez nearly broke the deadlock with a lovely left-footed volley that whistled past Wes Foderingham’s far post.

The match got more tangled as we failed to score during the half while we passed and probed.

As halftime approached, Sheffield United was able to attack because of that.

It took a swift move by Manuel Akanji to deflect William Osula’s shot, and Ederson was forced to make a save from the subsequent corner.
