Liverpool two wins away from winning Premier League title as Man City lose to Man Utd



Football

Liverpool are only two wins away from winning a first Premier League title in 30 years after Manchester United beat Manchester City 2-0 on Sunday.

Goals from Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay secured bragging rights for United over their rivals.

After winning the reverse league fixture 2-1 and beating City in the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg, United have now won three out of their four meetings this season.

The opener came on the half hour mark when Bruno Fernandes’ quick free-kick was volleyed by Martial and past Ederson, who should have saved it.

Ederson was at fault once more when he inadvertently threw the ball to substitute McTominay, whose first time shot sailed into an empty net in injury-time.

Guardiola shows his frustration as a seventh league defeat of the season leaves reigning champions City on the verge of relinquishing their title.

It means Liverpool will get their hands on a long-awaited top-flight title if they beat Everton and Crystal Palace in their next two games.

Should City slip up again in the coming weeks, Jurgen Klopp’s men could well be crowned champions before then.
