THE BALL – Burning title: City lost, drew and missed a penalty (see the goals) (England)

Emotions in the Premier League continue to run high and the title fight is pushed back in the final games.

An afternoon of great suffering in London and a relative surprise just before half-time, with West Ham beating Manchester City 2-0 at rest, in a match of the 37th day. City’s reaction came in the second half, managing to equalise, but Guardiola’s side ended up missing a penalty that would surely win the game.

Liverpool are four points behind (the schedule will be settled on Tuesday with Southampton), but also seven goals clear. City will face Aston Villa on the final day, Liverpool will face Wolves.

Bowen scored both of West Ham’s goals, the first in the 24th minute, in a counterattack that started with goalkeeper Fabianski, and in the 45th minute, in a similar move: kicking forward, dominating Antonio and passes to clear Bowen above the City defense. .

From the start of the second half, City reacted, Grealish reducing it in the 49th minute: Rodri fixed the header, the ball grazed a London defender and deceived Fabianski.

In the 1960s, from a direct free kick, DeBruyne brings the ball slightly over the bar, then Fernandinho makes a huge mistake in the 64th passing the ball to Antonio, but the West Ham striker ends up shooting slightly to the side.

The 2-2 was predictable and it came in the 69th minute, with right-back Coufal deflecting a header in the worst possible way towards his own goal, after a free-kick from Mahrez.

At 83, after viewing the monitor and warning the VAR, for Dawson’s foul on Gabriel Jesus, the referee awarded City a penalty, but Mahrez allowed Fabianski to save.
