Manchester City are two victories from winning the Premier League. Sergio Aguero notched his 20th goal of the season for Manchester City to keep them a point ahead of Liverpool. Manchester City edged closer to the Premier League title with victory over Burnley at Turf Moor. Sergio Aguero’s second-half goal helped City regain top spot – a point ahead of challengers Liverpool – with two matches of the season left. Argentina striker Aguero put City ahead when his close-range effort was deemed to have gone in by goalline technology despite a last-ditch clearance by Matt Lowton. Gabriel Jesus almost scored a second for City, only for Ben Mee to brilliantly deny him on the goalline. City were unfortunate not to be awarded a penalty immediately after the interval when Bernardo Silva’s shot struck the arm of Ashley Barnes inside the area. Burnley rarely threatened as City dominated the possession, although Chris Wood broke clear in the first half only for a poor touch to let him down.
Burnley 0 – 1 Manchester City | English Premier League – Match Highlights
- 1. 63′ 0 – 1 Sergio Agüero shot just crosses line before Lowton can clear! Relief for Manchester City! Sergio Aguero, the man who has won the title for them in the past, finally gets the ball past Tom Heaton. He has his back to goal, scrapes a turn past the defender on his shoulder and shoots with his left foot. With Heaton beaten, Matt Lowton is on the line. The ball hits his chest and is then cleared. In the meantime, though, it’s gone over the line and technology gives it. Aguero mirrors every City fan when he puffs out his cheeks.
