League title decider

Monday, May 12, 2014

LONDON - With Liverpool ready to pounce in case of a misstep, Manchester City will look to seize the Premier League title by beating West Ham United on the competition's final day.

After a campaign that has seen Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool all spend time as front-runners, City are now only a point from a second title in three years thanks to a run of four successive victories.

Although City lead second-place Liverpool by only two points, their vastly superior goal difference — +63 to +50 — means that a draw against West Ham will suffice.

It is a situation not dissimilar to the one that confronted City on the final day of the 2011-12 campaign, when Sergio Aguero's injury-time winner against Queens Park Rangers ended the club's 44-year wait for a league crown.

This time around, City need only to avoid defeat, but playmaker David Silva has cited Liverpool's 3-3 draw at Crystal Palace on Monday as a warning sign.

"Everyone is saying we have it won, but we still think it will be very difficult," the Spaniard told the club website.
