Manchester City moves closer to the title as they beat Crystal Palace

Manchester City could secure the Premier League title on Sunday after two goals over the course of about 83 seconds saw off a difficult Crystal Palace. 

Manchester City will get a third title in four seasons if second-set Manchester United lose at home to Liverpool. 

After a rough first half at Selhurst Park, Sergio Aguero pounded City ahead with a clinical completion before Ferran Torres bored in a low shot. 

That finished the opposition of Palace, who stay in thirteenth spot. 

Roy Hodgson's side had chances in the initial half through Christian Benteke, who flicked a header wide and had a short proximity shot impeded by City attendant Ederson. 

In any case, when Manchester City made their advancement when Aguero crushed high into the net, immediately followed by Torres' exact completion, the outcome was not in question. 

Presently it is an issue of when, not if, Pep Guardiola's side will be delegated support again subsequent to giving up the crown to Liverpool last season. 

"We can begin to place the champagne in the refrigerator - not to open yet, but rather to consider everything," said Guardiola, whose side moved 11 focuses clear of United. 

"The Premier League is as of now there - it is in our grasp. We need one more triumph, two additional focuses."
