Manchester City made the fight for the English championship exciting again. The defending champion of the Premier League did not get over a 2-2 (0: 2) after five victories in a row on Sunday at West Ham United and built his lead in front of FC Liverpool with team manager Jürgen Klopp for the time being to four points and seven goals.
“There is another week, another game, in front of our fans – I assure that it will be sold out and that we will perform the best possible performance to win the game and get the title,” said City coach Pep Guardiola at Sky Sports. “It would have been better to win today, but West Ham fought – it is complicated and so difficult to play against them. It is in our hands.”
The Reds, who won the FA Cup on Saturday, could get on a counter with a win on Tuesday (8:45 p.m.) at FC Southampton. Liverpool competes against the Wolverhampton Wanderers for the season finale, City welcomes Aston Villa.
