After Manchester City defeated Wolves 5-1, Arjen Robben was in the team’s locker room.

City closed the gap on leaders Arsenal in the Premier League title race to just one point thanks to goals from Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez. They have now won six straight top flight games, during which they have scored 24 goals and are still in the running for a fourth championship.

And the Daily Mail reports that some legendary football players attended the game. For the first time since his departure in July 2020 owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, David Silva made his way back to the Etihad. The former City midfielder had left without saying goodbye. He was with his family there.

Robben was down in the City dressing room following yet another thrilling victory, so Silva wasn’t the only legendary person present. Robben, who played for Bayern Munich under Pep Guardiola, was able to get a ticket to see City play and was given the opportunity to meet the team after the final whistle.

Having laughed about Guardiola’s habit of calling him at all hours to discuss work, Robben congratulated City on their victory over Wolves and urged them to keep up the pressure on Arsenal. During his career, Robben played for Groningen, PSV, Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Bayern.

Robben’s trip to the UK this weekend included stops at other football venues in addition to the Etihad. Images of the Dutchman with former Bayern teammate Thiago Alcantara in the players’ area at Anfield surfaced on social media. He saw Liverpool defeat Spurs 4–2.

For their part, City needs to win three more games in their remaining games to win the championship for the fourth time in a row. Guardiola stated, “The biggest importance is just two weeks left,” in response to questions about the victory over Wolves and the title fight. Three activities. With nine points, we will win.

Arsenal will win the Premier League even if we only manage to score seven, six, or three points. There can be no goal difference; we are unable to draw. Arsenal has been playing in such a proficient and reliable manner.

“We have three games to play; hopefully, we win the first and second so that we can control our own Premier League fate going into the third.” You may have noticed the 5-1 outcome [today], but I don’t think it was all that great.

“We lost a good number of balls, easy ones. We can run with Phil [Foden], Kevin [De Bruyne], and Julian [Alvarez] when we have teams that press hard. I think Wolves’ patterns are really impressive. Matheus Cunha and Hwang [Hee-chan] were dangerous at all times.”
