Manchester City came from 2-0 down to salvage a vital point in a 2-2 draw at West Ham to move one point ahead of Liverpool and keep the Premier League title in their hands. Catch up with the highlights from all of Sunday’s action.
City travelled to the London Stadium knowing they needed a maximum of four points from their final two games of the season to guarantee a fourth title in five years.
However, the Hammers took full advantage of City’s injury crisis at the back as the pace and poise of Jarrod Bowen put Liverpool right back in the title race.
Bowen burst on to Pablo Fornals’ ball over the top to round Ederson and put City behind in a league game for the first time since February. City did not learn their lesson as Bowen broke the offside trap once more in the final seconds of the first half to fire low past Ederson.
Jack Grealish hit back quickly after the break as he found the back of the net with a deflected strike before Vladimir Coufal turned Riyad Mahrez’s free kick into his own net to level the scores.
Guardiola’s men then missed the chance to complete the comeback and move to the brink of the title when Mahrez’s penalty was saved by Lukasz Fabianski four minutes from time.
