Man City Near Fourth Premier League Title in Five Years

As Man City near fourth Premier League title in 5 years‚ will the party poopers label stick to them? Despite their 5-0 demolition of Newcastle in midweek‚ Pep Guardiola's side deserves better. This article will take a closer look at Guardiola's XI and their chances of avoiding defeat. But before we get to that‚ we should talk about how Liverpool can spoil the party.

Man City's 5-0 win over Newcastle

After a spirited first half‚ Manchester City eased into the second half and finished the job comfortably. The visitors dominated the game but Newcastle did have a brief spark in the closing stages when Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin combined to create a chance for the England striker. However‚ this late spurt only served to fire up the hosts as Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling headed home goals in the last minute. City were 5-0 up and could have finished even better had they resisted the visitors' late surge. Man City's 5-0 win over Newcastle has given them a crucial three-point advantage over Liverpool in the race for the title. The victory against Newcastle means the Citizens have won nine of their last ten games and are now three points ahead of Liverpool. Liverpool‚ who drew against Tottenham on Saturday‚ now trail City by three points with a better goal difference‚ but they still have a difficult task ahead of them. Pep Guardiola has a secret Twitter account. He logs onto the social network using an anonymous account to monitor discussions about his team. The manager has been missing both Jack Grealish and Rahel Sterling in recent weeks‚ but they were key to City's 5-0 win against Newcastle on Sunday. Liverpool's draw with Tottenham also opens the door for City to win their fourth Premier League title in five years.

Guardiola's faith in his team's response to midweek's defeat

Pep Guardiola insists he has no intention of changing his team's line-up after the disappointing defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final. The Spanish manager has been vocal about his confidence in his players after a series of criticisms from the Madrid press. After several years of quiet silence‚ Guardiola has finally lost his cool and spoken out. Guardiola hailed his team's response to the midweek defeat‚ saying we'll do whatever it takes to win. In fact‚ Guardiola's decision to rest Foden and Bernardo was well-timed. City now face a difficult run of fixtures against West Ham‚ Aston Villa‚ and Wolves. Guardiola is adamant that his team will respond to this setback and get the three points they need to lift the Premier League. If he had rested De Bruyne or Bernardo‚ the team would have lost - and they won't. Johan Cruyff‚ a Dutch legend‚ was sacked from Barcelona in 1997. The manager of the youth team‚ Charly Rexach‚ called him up and asked who he was watching. Guardiola was the young lad on the right side of the pitch. Johan Cruyff was impressed with Pep's ability to adapt and grow as a player.

XI

Manchester City are on the brink of their fourth Premier League title in five years as they begin their season against Tottenham Hotspur. Before they begin their campaign‚ we take a look at Pep Guardiola's strongest XI. You might be surprised to know that he has made changes to his team in the past few months‚ but there's still room for some surprises. The Citizens have an injury-hit Nathan Ake and could be out for the game. The Englishman has an ankle problem and is aiming for a return against West Ham next week‚ which will add to the title race subplot. The win over Newcastle means that City have a four-point cushion over Liverpool and could win the title even if they lose a game or two. David Silva and John Stones are both back in the starting XI after missing seven weeks of the season due to hamstring injuries. David Silva and John Stones are the other key players in the team‚ as the duo were the most influential on Sunday's win over Newcastle. However‚ David Silva has not been at his best this season‚ as he has suffered from a hamstring injury during the last two months of the season. Neither of those two players have scored a goal for City this season‚ and both have a number of key roles in the team. The Premier League is Manchester City's priority‚ but the club is still missing out on Champions League glory. Pep Guardiola has been frustrated with the lack of success in the competition but the club is focused on the Premier League title race for the time being. With four games to go in the final weeks of the season‚ they can win their fourth Premier League title in five years. But it is unlikely that City will reach the Champions League without winning all their remaining league games.

Liverpool's chances of winning

If the Reds win all of their remaining games‚ they have a 14.3% chance of winning the Premier League this season. That would give them 52 points from the 54 available. One dropped point would come from their recent draw at Manchester City‚ which would make it the second-best run of Premier League points in history. No Premier League side has ever collected more points from their final 18 games‚ and only two teams have more if you include Manchester City. Despite their recent loss to Manchester City‚ Liverpool have a small chance of winning the Premier League. And they're coin-flippers to win the Champions League as well. However‚ the team will have to win the FA Cup in order to achieve that. If Liverpool manages to win the FA Cup‚ they'll be the favorites to lift the Premier League. But if they fail to do so‚ they'll have to win the FA Cup to keep their title hopes alive. As for the rest‚ there's not much between the two teams. Their goal differentials are similar (64 points each) but Liverpool's run-in was tougher than Manchester City's. In addition‚ both teams have compelling narratives to justify their high ambitions. The winner of the Premier League will be the only team to defend its title twice. Manchester City‚ meanwhile‚ will become the most successful side in the Premier League era with its sixth title.

Kyle Walker‚ Ruben Dias and John Stones' absences

The absence of Kyle Walker‚ Ruben Dias and Johnstones has left Manchester City short at the back. Walker missed 26 matches this season and had two goals and an assist. Stones missed 31 games and is out until the end of the season due to injury. Without these three senior defenders‚ Guardiola will be short on options in defence. He only has two senior options at full-back‚ Joao Cancelo and Oleksandr Zinchenko‚ and Aymeric Laporte is expected to play in a deeper role. The absences of Kyle Walker‚ Ruben Dias and John stone have cost the Citizens in the title race. Kyle Walker and Ruben Dias were both injured in the Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid‚ but Laporte was a standout in the match. Despite the injuries to the trio‚ the Citizens were able to win 3-0 to move closer to the Premier League title. Liverpool dropped points in their last two games. They were unbeaten in their first 20 Premier League matches‚ but Manchester City came from behind to beat Liverpool 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium and cut their lead to four points. The absence of John Stones‚ Kyle Walker‚ and Ruben Dias is a huge blow for Liverpool‚ but City still have a chance of winning the Premier League again.

Defeat of Liverpool

Manchester City are in a good position to win their fourth Premier League title in five years after beating Liverpool in the final game of the season. The victory secured a four-point lead over Liverpool‚ who have been chasing the title for nearly five years. Manchester City also defeated Newcastle‚ Wolves and West Ham. However‚ they still have games against Chelsea‚ Aston Villa and Brentford to play‚ and a draw could send them down to the fourth place. Manchester City's win against Liverpool on Sunday night means that they are one point away from their fourth Premier League title in five years‚ but still have to play the final four games to achieve their aim. While Liverpool are just one point behind‚ they will be buoyed by the goal difference. Man City can go on winning their fourth title in five years with four wins and a draw in their final league matches. With only two home matches left‚ Man City is incredibly confident of retaining their title. However‚ with the UEFA Cup‚ Liverpool still has to face Tottenham and West Ham at home. In addition‚ Liverpool will also need to beat Manchester United at Anfield to secure a place in the top four. Those three teams will be tough opponents‚ and if they don't‚ they will finish below Liverpool.
