The blue side of Manchester celebrates as City close in on title
Following a hard-earned victory over Newcastle, Manchester City maintained their lead in the Premier League, although United still only trail on goal difference.
Inspired by Yaya Toure and Vincent Kompany, City have managed to overturn an eight point deficit and now sit in pole position going into the final match of the season. Only a slip up against relegation battling Queens Park Rangers will, in all probability, see the red devils hold onto their crown. In theory, United can still win even if City overcome QPR, but they would have to win by at least nine goals in order to do so. United also appear to have, on paper, a much more difficult final encounter- a trip to Sunderland, who sit comfortably in mid-table.
If Man City do prove to be champions it will be their first league title since 1968, and will show the improvements the team has made over the last couple of years under the management of Roberto Mancini.
