Manchester City became too strong for Sheffield United, but Sander Berge is praised by the local newspaper The Star and the BBC.
Sheffield United – Manchester City 0–1
Sander Berge could not prevent Sheffield United on Saturday from the fifth loss of the season in six games in the Premier League. The score that separated the teams came after 28 minutes of play. Then right-back Kyle Walker got a very good hit from distance after being served the ball by Kevin De Bruyne.
For Berge, it is perhaps a meager consolation that he is the best of the home team’s players on the stock exchange at the local newspaper The Star.
“He was brilliant when he served the ball to (John) Lundstram after hitting the tunnel on Cancelo on the right. He looks so dangerous when he gets the chance to storm forward “, the newspaper writes and gives him a grade of 7.
Aaron Ramsdale, John Egan and Chris Basham also get a grade of 7.
BBC readers have voted him the second best of the hosts’ players. Only goalkeeper Ramsdale gets a better grade than the Norwegian.
The victory means that Manchester City climbed to seventh place in the table before Saturday’s other Premier League matches. Up to league leader Everton, who have the same number of games played, there are only two points difference.
The triumph was Manchester City’s 11th victory at the top level on October 31, the day better known as Halloween. It writes the statistics provider choose.
Sheffield United are left with one point after six league rounds. Only Fulham have started worse.

Great Sheffield chances
On Saturday, it could also quickly become a point against City. The guests were admittedly the most dangerous team before the break, but in the second half Sheffield United also came to several good opportunities.
Halfway through the half, City had trouble clearing away a good post from the Norwegian, but the guests escaped the horror. Then Berge served to teammate John Lundstram after dribbling down to the dead line. The finish went over goal.
A minute later, Rhian Brewster came alone with City goalkeeper Ederson, but the Brazilian emerged victorious from the duel that followed. Brewster tried with a tilt, but did not succeed.

Manchester City also created several dangers in the second half and could have won with bigger numbers. Towards the end, the home team also had to take greater chances going forward in the field. It gave extra room to counter in.
However, the match ended without any more goals.
Thus, Kyle Walker won the match against the club he originally played for when he was growing up.
