Man City comeback keeps EPL title in their hands

Manchester City came back from a 2-0 deficit in a 2-2 draw against West Ham to keep their Premier League title hopes alive.

Man City knew they needed a maximum of four points from their final two games to secure their fourth title in five years.

The Hammers, on the other hand, took full advantage of City’s defensive injury issue, while Jarrod Bowen’s quickness and finesse propelled Liverpool back into the title fight.

Bowen pounced on Pablo Fornals’ over-the-top pass to round Ederson and give Man City their first league loss since February.

Bowen slipped the offside trap again in the waning seconds of the first half, firing low past Ederson.

Jack Grealish has fallen short of his £100 million ($123 million) price tag, but he scored his best City goal four minutes into the second period to spark the comeback.

Bowen missed the side-netting from a tight angle and Michail Antonio’s lob drifted wide with just Ederson to beat, but West Ham still had chances to regain their two-goal lead.

When Vladimir Coufal turned Riyad Mahrez’s free-kick into his own net, City had luck on their side.

When Mahrez’s penalty was saved by Lukasz Fabianski four minutes from time, Guardiola’s side missed the chance to complete the comeback and move to the edge of the title.

Man City now leads Liverpool by four points at the top of the league, but the Reds have a game in hand against Southampton on Tuesday.
