Liverpool: Manchester City Drop Points!

Liverpool: Manchester City Drop Points!

Sunderland have held Liverpool's title rivals Manchester City to a surprise 2-2 draw at the Etihad...

This season's dramatic title race has taken a new twist tonight with Manchester City dropping points at home to rock-bottom Sunderland.

The Black Cats were even within minutes of a shock win courtesy of a late Connor Wickham brace.

Frustratingly for Gus Poyet's side, who featured on-loan Reds forward Fabio Borini in their line-up, a Vito Mannone error gifted Samir Nasri an 88th minute equaliser.

Earlier Fernandinho had given City, who Premier League leaders Liverpool beat 3-2 at Anfield on Sunday, the lead inside three minutes.

Manuel Pellegrini's men move onto 71 points, six behind top spot but with one game in hand.

Liverpool travel to Norwich City this weekend while the Citizens face West Bromwich Albion and the other main protagonist, Chelsea, take on Sunderland.

Kop boss Brendan Rodgers knows four wins from their remaining four games will guarantee a first league triumph since 1990.

As a consequence of City's latest result, Liverpool can now afford to draw next weekend's match with Chelsea and still lift the trophy if they win their other three fixtures.

The championship chase is likely to go down to the wire and could even be decided on goal difference; City still have the best record amongst the top three in this regard.

The Table As It Stands
1. Liverpool - P34 | PTS 77 | GD +51
2. Chelsea - P34 | PTS 75 | GD +42
3. Man City - P33 | PTS 71 | GD +54

Some will based on the way we've played this season, being the underdogs & having a host of England players. I think the whole of football has had enough of listening to Mourinho talk nonsense
