Manchester City’s backroom staff member, Carlos Vicens, has been credited as the mastermind behind the corner-kick routine that led to the opening goal against Liverpool on Sunday. The goal was scored by John Stones in the 23rd minute, but Alexis Mac Allister’s penalty in the second half resulted in a 1-1 draw at Anfield.

Stones’ goal was a result of a cleverly worked set-piece, with Kevin De Bruyne providing a brilliant cross and Nathan Ake making a smart decoy run. Despite Liverpool’s efforts to score a second goal, Manchester City managed to hold out for a point. Stones, who hadn’t scored since last season, highlighted the importance of the goal in the title race, with City currently competing with Arsenal and Liverpool for the Premier League trophy.

After the match, Stones praised Vicens for his work on the corner routine that led to his goal. He emphasized the team’s approach to every game as a final and the need to continue their positive momentum. City’s next challenge will be against Arsenal, with the team trailing both Arsenal and Liverpool by one point in the standings.

In their upcoming match, City will face Newcastle United in the quarter-finals of the Emirates FA Cup before returning to Premier League action later in the month. Guardiola’s team is focused on maintaining their form and securing a strong finish to the season.
