This weekend could see an enthralling English Premier season draw to a dramatic end with either Manchester City or Manchester United being crowned as champions following the closest title race in 20 years!
It was always a given that the very first match-up between the Manchester rivals which saw Mancini’s side topple the Reds 6-1 at Old Trafford would become a telling factor in the race to the title.
With a nine goal difference City certainly now stands in good stead to clinch their third title after 44 years, and with just ninety minutes (and stoppage time) left of the season, they’re most likely to get their hands on the title, a privilege they’ve been deprived of since 1968.
Two things stand in their way though, 1. A motivated QPR manager and former Manchester United stalwart in the form of Mark Hughes who will have a vivid memory of his embarrassing departure from City not to long ago, and 2. A nine goal haul from Man United over whatever City slot in come this weekend.
Mark Hughes will certainly want to make a statement at the Etihad Stadium this weekend and leading his Queens Park Rangers chargers to a win or even a draw away from home could not only see City lose grip of the EPL title, but it will see QPR possibly deny themselves relegation as well.
Both teams have 86 points while City have an eight-goal better goal difference over their neighbours. City have scored 90 goals vs United’s 88 and even in this goal-crazy season such a huge winning margin is highly unlikely.
