Manchester City’s hopes hit despite late draw with Sunderland
Manchester City salvaged a point with two late goals to draw 3-3 at home to Sunderland on Saturday but the result helped tip the balance in the Premier League title race in Manchester United’s favor.
With seven matches to play, City, chasing their first top flight title since 1968, moved on to 71 points, two behind United who would go five clear at the top if they beat lowly Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Monday. Arsenal’s seven-match winning league run ended when lost 2-1 at strugglers Queens Park Rangers while Chelsea maintained their push for a top four spot with a 4-2 win at Aston Villa. Wolverhampton Wanderers are beginning to look doomed following their seventh successive home league loss as they went down 3-2 against Bolton Wanderers. That result left Wolves on 22 points, six adrift of Blackburn, QPR and Wigan Athletic, who continued their revival with a 2-0 home win over Stoke City.
