New champions set for strong finish

By Razeen Gutta

Manchester City eye another 90 point tally as they beat Chelsea 1-0 at the Etihad in their final home game of the season. 

Pep Guardiola made nine changes to the team that thrashed Real Madrid in midweek; and even with the title secured, City dominated proceedings. 

It would be the world champion Julian Alvarez who would break the deadlock with Cole Palmer picking up the assist inside just 12 minutes. 

The Cityzens have now scored 100 goals at home this season in all competitions, over 30 more than any other side from Europe’s top five leagues.

Raheem Sterling looked sharp against his former club but could not find the equaliser, with the Blues falling to their 15th league loss of the season. 

In the earlier games, Leeds United went closer to relegation after throwing away an advantage to lose 3-1 to West Ham before Brighton beat bottom-placed Southampton by the same scoreline at the Amex. 


No side has lost more points from leading positions in the Premier League this season than Leeds, with Sam Allardyce’s side only picking up two wins from the last nine games in which they have opened the scoring. 

This past weekend’s results leave them two points behind Everton with Leicester still to play as the three sides battle it out for one survival spot.
