Riyad Mahrez had a golden opportunity to secure 3 points for the cityzens in the 86th minute but he could not convert from the spot just like he did against Liverpool in October, 2018.
Nevertheless, Pep Guardiola side will see this as a point gained after being down 2-0 at halftime courtesy of Bowen’s brilliance. Jack Grealish goal early in the second half and Vladimir Coufals own goal was enough to make sure city did not remain only three points ahead of Liverpool at the top and with a goal difference of +5. It would have presented the Reds with a golden chance to accumulate goal difference in their final two games of this season and possibly win the league on goal difference.
The draw for Manchester City means that they will win the league if they win Gerrad’s Aston Villa side on the final day regardless of the outcome in any of Liverpool’s game.
West Ham are having another impressive season with their escapade in Europa league but they may not qualify for the Europa league next season. They must now win at Brighton in their last game of the season and hope Manchester United lose at home to Crystal Palace if they are to qualify for the Europa League.
If this doesn’t happen, then they will be flying their colours at the European conference league next season.
