City edge closer to title after 2-2 draw at West Ham

London, May 15 (EFE).- Manchester City came back from two goals down to take one step closer to the Premier League title in a thrilling draw against West Ham at the London Stadium on Sunday.

Fielding an unfamiliar back-four due to injury and suspension, City looked vulnerable in defense during the opening period, and West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen’s two goals on the counter attack gave the home side a deserved 2-0 lead at the break.

But Jack Grealish’s deflected shot halved the deficit shortly after the restart, and City equalized when West Ham’s Sofiane Boufal headed Riyad Mahrez’s whipped free-kick into his own net.

The visitors had a golden opportunity to take all three points, but Lukasz Fabianski made a brilliant save to deny Mahrez from the penalty spot after Craig Dawson had fouled Gabriel Jesus.

City – now four points ahead of Liverpool, who have a game in hand – can seal the title with a win over Aston Villa in their final match. EFE
