By Jae-hyun Han Reporter= With Manchester City (Man City) clinching the title, it was expected that they would use non-starters to play the remaining league games. Instead, the bench has become more expensive as starters are rested 메이저놀이터.
City won 1-0 at home against Chelsea in the 37th round of the 2022/2023 English Premier League (EPL) on Monday morning (Jan. 21), but came into the game depleted, with Arsenal having slipped up earlier and clinched the title.
With the exception of Kyle Walker, Phil Foden, and Riyad Mahrez, most of the lesser-used players were given chances. However, they had no trouble getting the job done against Chelsea, with Julian Alvarez scoring the winner in the 12th minute to seal a 1-0 victory.
Most of the starters were on the bench, with Elling Holland, Kevin De Bruyne, Rodri, Ilkay Gundogan, Jack Grealish, Ederson, Bernardo Silva, John Stones, and Jubeng Dias on the bench.
In total, they were worth a staggering €655 million (about $930 billion). It’s the most expensive bench in the world.
It’s likely that City will rely heavily on non-starters for the remaining two league games. They want to save their starters for the FA Cup against Manchester United and the UEFA Champions League final against Inter Milan.
