London, May 8 (BUS): Manchester City kicked off the decade celebrations of their first Premier League title by trying to prevent a sixth success from being so tense or dramatic with a defeat initiated and ended by Raheem Sterling.
What used to be a tight title race is now more intense in City’s dominance after their 5-0 win over Newcastle left the defending champions three points clear of Liverpool on Sunday, according to the Associated Press.
How expensive it could be for Liverpool’s only draw with Tottenham on Saturday, as City now maintain a superior 4+ goal difference over their rival with three games remaining.
Between Sterling’s two goals, Aymeric Laporte, Rodri and Phil Foden scored.
The elegant win ensured City could enjoy the luxury of dropping points in the remaining game and still win their sixth English title in 10 years.
City certainly won’t snatch the trophy into injury time in the final like they did in 2012 – a memorable moment in the 2022 jerseys before kick-off on Sunday which included “Aguerooooo 93:20” to celebrate the moment Sergio Aguero scored the title-winning goal.
