In the eleventh minute, the Netherlands international courageously channeled his inner John Terry by sliding along the turf to head the ball – despite the danger of receiving one or two blows to the head.McCoist, who witnessed the peculiar occurrence, remarked, “Am I perceiving things here, or did Ake simply head the ball to the ground?” “Oh my, my.”Although it was an exceptionally tumultuous moment from the Dutchman, it demonstrated how willing he is to risk his life for Manchester City. Pep Guardiola must have been delighted to witness it.


Against Tottenham, Manchester City No.6 hardly placed a foot wrong.

Ake’s performance in the FA Cup victory over Tottenham was outstanding.


SofaScore indicates that with the exception of the game-winning goal, the 28-year-old completed 57 of 63 passes attempted against him, for a success rate of 90%.Additionally, Ake executed a successful dribble, and his ground pace assisted Manchester City in containing Brennan Johnson, Richarlison, and Timo Werner.


Due to the defender’s quickness, Josko Gvardiol consistently had the ability to advance down the left flank, secure in the knowledge that Ake would occupy the resulting space.The Netherlands international is not only a refined footballer; his 11th minute deft cross-field header indicates he also possesses considerable strength, and he is also capable of converting crucial goals.
