Sergio Agüero Strikes to Put Man City on the Brink of Premier League Title


Sergio Aguero set Man City on course for a priceless victory at Crystal Palace as they move to the brink of the Premier League title

Quickfire goals from Sergio Aguero and Ferran Torres have put Manchester City on the brink of the Premier League title after beating Crystal Palace 2-0 at Selhurst Park.

Pep Guardiola made eight changes from the midweek victory at PSG and it showed in the first half as City failed to register a shot on target.

Gabriel Jesus had a goal ruled out for offside, while Palace also had chances of their own, beating City’s tally for on-target efforts (2) in the opening 45 minutes.

But 12 minutes after half-time, Man City had their first two shots on target – both of which resulted in goals. The first was an emphatic finish from Aguero (57) into the roof of the net before Torres (59) fired home from the top of the area 83 seconds later to seal the victory.

It sees City put one hand on the Premier League trophy. They will secure their fifth Premier League title if Manchester United lose against Liverpool on Sunday, live on Sky Sports. For Palace, it is a third successive league defeat – although all against teams in the top four – and keeps them in 13th place.
