Premier League title race: How can clubs catch Manchester City?

  • Pep Guardiola hints injured Sergio Aguero may not make the World Cup

Ederson's unconventional but reassuring presence has underpinned the Premier League's most miserly defence, one led by Otamendi - the most remarkable transformation of them all.

Probably because I won eight championships, I was not in the moon with the victory against them.

Only the injured Sergio "Kun" Aguero was missing among the regular starters.

Aguero makes it 2-2 on the hour, but in the sixth minute of added time David Beckham finds Roy Keane in the box from a corner, and the captain nods it in at the far post to win it.

"It is one title and we are all delighted but there is a lot more to do to unlock our full potential".

More comfortable playing at Highbury where their swashbuckling football often caught overconfident teams on the break, Arsenal come out and play for the visit of City.

But Guardiola wants to see his team get back to where they were before their dip in form with three successive defeats in the last week.

But they moved within touching distance of the title in the 72nd minute.

A United victory would keep City's champagne on ice for a few more days at least. Now on 87, they need just nine more points to break Chelsea's Premier League record set during the 2004-05 campaign. City's away winning run stretched from May 21 to December 27 and ended with a 0-0 draw to Crystal Palace.

Here are some of the records that City have broken and some they could manage to break by the end of the season. If not for wasting opportunities, six or seven goals wasn't out of the question.

He also won three Super Cups in each country and will have the chance to compete for next season's Community Shield against this season's eventual FA Cup winners.

Manchester City were confirmed as Premier League champions without kicking a ball on Sunday as rock bottom West Brom stunned Manchester United with a 1-0 win at Old Trafford.

It's for that reason that they beat their rivals again in this mini-league.

Arsene Wenger's side took an early lead through Alexandre Lacazette, but Ayoze Perez equalised before Ritchie bagged the second half victor.

Despite the efforts of an industrious Wayne Rooney, United are frustrated. "Premier League Champions 17/18", City posted on their official Twitter account.

Ronaldo puts the hosts ahead 20 minutes in, before De Bruyne lobs Edwin van der Sar from forty yards before half-time.

"But he has to go for that stability and to go for that stability, the first thing is stability at training level, stability during the working week". It was always a matter of when rather than if City would be champions after they led the way for most of the season.

"I will tell you what I told him after the (City) match and it's exactly what I told him - I don't expect you to be man of the match every week, I don't expect you to score two goals every week", said Mourinho.

With that in mind, who would win this hypothetical division?
