The Light at the End of the Tunnel?

Could this be the light at the end of the tunnel for Manchester City?

With two draws and two losses in their last seven Premier League games, Man City surrendered the top spot to arch and city rival Manchester United. While earlier this month, ManU opened an eight point advantage after six successive wins that started last month during the course of Man City’s mishap. And after Manchester City’s loss to Arsenal on 8 April, many have thought that it would be the end of their English Premier Championship bid while Manchester United doesn’t stop winning also.

After Man City demolished West Bromwich (4-0) at Etihad Stadium last Wednesday, this time they crushed Norwich (6-1) at their own turf with Tevez leading the goal scoring with his first treble after coming back from a long suspension and self exiled situation. Fellow Argentinean and team-mate Aguero almost got his own hat trick as well if not only of the post. The win cut Manchester United’s lead to just 2 points although they still have a game left to play on Sunday at home against Aston Villa. Another loss or a draw will surely blow their chance of securing their 20th English league crown. And if both have the same points at the end of the season, the winner will be decided with the goal difference and the goals scored. As of this time Man City had the upper hand with eight better than their arch rivals.

The back-to-back win, rekindles Manchester City’s hopes into the title race and of winning their first title since 1968. Thus putting some pressure on Manchester United with their surprise defeat at Wigan and ahead of their game tomorrow at Old Trafford.
