Man City one win from EPL title
    2018-04-02  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    MANCHESTER City is one win away from being crowned English Premier League (EPL) champion after a swaggering 3-1 victory over Everton, while Mohamed Salah was Liverpool’s hero yet again as the Egypt star clinched a 2-1 win at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

    Pep Guardiola’s men maintained their 16-point lead at the top thanks to a scintillating first half display at Goodison Park.

    City, on a five-match winning run in the league, can look forward to the delicious prospect of sealing the title when bitter rival Manchester United visits Eastlands on April 7.

    Leroy Sane put City ahead with a sumptuous volley from David Silva’s pin-point cross in the fourth minute.

    Gabriel Jesus increased City’s lead eight minutes later, the Brazil forward heading in from Kevin De Bruyne’s cross.

    Thrashed 4-0 at Everton last season in one of the worst defeats of Guardiola’s glittering career, City players underlined their vast improvement since then as Raheem Sterling finished off a ruthless counter-attack in the 37th minute.

    Yannick Bolasie drilled home for Everton in the 63rd minute, but City’s club record 13th away league win means the side has  84 points and can break the previous record total for Premier League champions — Chelsea’s 85-point haul in 2005 — if the side beats United.

    Having already won the League Cup, City next faces a Champions League quarter-final first leg against Liverpool on Wednesday.

    In rainy south London, Liverpool trailed when Luka Milivojevic drove struggling Palace into a 13th-minute lead from the penalty spot after Loris Karius fouled Wilfried Zaha.

    But Senegal winger Sadio Mane leveled four minutes after the break with a close-range finish.

    Salah, in the midst of an incredible debut season at Liverpool, proved the match winner as he smashed home in the 84th minute. Salah, who has 37 goals in 42 games in all competitions this term, has scored in the joint-most Premier League matches (21) in a single 38-match season.

    That ties the mark set by Robin van Persie in 2012-13 and Cristiano Ronaldo in 2007-08.

    “I think the moment you see it is Mo on the ball you feel good. It was a very cool finish and long may that form continue,” Klopp said.

    Liverpool was unable to hold onto second place as Manchester United moved two points ahead of the side with a 2-0 victory against Swansea at Old Trafford. “Lots of players played internationals, so they were tired in the second half. Every point is vital because we want to stay in second place,” United manager Jose Mourinho said.
