Today's match between Manchester United and Liverpool FC will be very pivotal in determining whether Premier League's title will be taken or delayed. Manchester City are just a hand's grab away from the title.
Pep Guardiola's side saw off an aggressive Crystal Palace 2-0 in a match lethal scorer Aguero had an opener. This was his 258th goal for the City team.
The title will be clinched by City as their 3rd one in four seasons if Liverpool FC are going to see off the red devils at Old Trafford. Uncertainties pop up obviously here, looking at previous United's home games' performance- if it's anything we can go by. It is a matter of hours to sink everything in as the answer to - Will United delay the crowning of City as the Champions today?
Following Saturday's game against Palace, it is evident Pep has already acknowledged to carrying the title now unlike previous comments he was giving about the same. It all commenced with the stubborn Roy Hodgson's side bracing tirelessly to earn Guardiola's side a barren rough and scarpy first half of nil goals.
Sergio Aguero saves the day!
The Argentine raised the spirits high from the dust when he netted at the 57th minute . And as it is said, within no time, at the 59th minute, another goal! Great thanks to a precise finish by Torres. Palace were surely reduced to nothing but toothless hopeless side. This sunk them indeed and they couldn't even pressure City like in the first half.
Aguero seemed evidently happy to have played the 90 minutes as he stated in the aftermath press. Again, it's something an achievement since he has never scored at Selhurst Park. He too become the 12th player in history to score in 30 and above different sports arenas in the English Premier League.
It is also sad yet that the forward will be a no seen figure at Etihad when the season ends. His contract expires. Remarkably, he has contributed a great deal for the success of the club since joining the year 2011. All credits to his master-class skills and talent indeed.
Here comes a happy lot.
According to BBC Sport, Pep Guardiola hinted of a celebration."We can commence putting champagne in the fridge- but not opening yet-"
My opinion- I am pretty sure they, Manchester City are waiting for the United-Liverpool game to open their champagne. I think so, don't you?
