Premier League: Man City fail to win title after United seal 3-2 victory


Manchester City would have to wait for a week or two to be crowned Premier League champions, after they were beaten 3-2 by second-placed Manchester United on Saturday at The Etihad Stadium.

Pep Guardiola’s men needed an outright win and began the match in fine fashion.

Vincent Kompany headed City in front, before Ilkay Gundogan rounded off a fine team move to make it 2-0.

However, United fought back in the second half, with Paul Pogba scoring a two-minute brace to level the match.

Chris Smalling then side-footed Alexis Sanchez’s free-kick past Ederson to claim all three points for Jose Mourinho’s men.

With the victory, the Red Devils have now cut City’s lead at the top to 13 points, with six matches left.
