History favours Manchester City as title race hots up



The English Premier League title race has entered its final day but pundits believe the omens are not good for Arsenal if they are to stop Manchester City from making history.

City’s 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday, their eighth league victory in a row, means they will arrive on the final day of the campaign with a two-point lead over Arsenal.

Victory over West Ham United will seal a fourth successive title for Pep Guardiola’s side, an unprecedented feat in English football.

Arsenal, will host Everton and need a huge favour from West Ham if they are to claim their first title in 20 years.

The Premier League title race has gone to the final day nine times with City involved in the last four, each time they were crowned champions.

City beat West Ham 2-0 at home in 2014 to seal the title under Manuel Pellegrini but it has not always been that straightforward.

In 2012, they needed Sergio Aguero’s stoppage time goal to claim a 3-2 win over Queen’s Park Rangers and deny Manchester United the opportunity to lift the trophy.

City will hope that Kevin De Bruyne recovers from the ankle inury he sustained at Tottenham while goalkeeper Ederson is a doubt after suffering a head injury.

Arsenal will hold out a little more hope as their goal difference is better than City’s, meaning should they beat Everton and City draw, the London side will take the title.
