Manchester City’s 3-2 loss at Etihad means City will have to wait a little bit longer for their crown.
So when can Man City lay their hands on Premier League title?
Man United win means City cannot lay their hands on title at Wembley the following week. Man City still need at least six points of remaining matches to overrun Manchester United maximum possible total of 89.
If City’s beat Tottenham Hotspur and United slip up and draw against West Brom the following weekend, The Blues would still need a point mathematically, to claim the crown.
But if United lose against West Brom it means a victory at Wembley will be enough to clinch the title.
Premier League table: Top two
Liverpool’s 0-0 draw with Everton means Liverpool could not surpass City’s tally at any cost.
