Manchester City distance oneself from closest pursuers


The victory over Brentford with a minimum score secured undeniable leadership in the English Premier League for the Citizens. Thus, in the match of the 20th round, the Sky Blues took three points in the away game due to the forces of Phil Foden.

This result goes in parallel to the draw by Chelsea, which wasn’t able to beat Brighton. The hosts conceded in the additional time and played 1:1, increasing the gap between the sides to eight points. Another pursuer, Liverpool, lost to Leicester the day before. It left the Reds with 41 points and one game to play due to postponement, while the Blues gained their 50th point.
