After ending their Everton hoodoo, Manchester City now look on course to claim the Premier League title after moving ahead of Liverpool on goal difference. Although they have two games to play, the Sky Blues look unlikely to slip up at home to Aston Villa and West Ham, meaning they have eight fingers on the trophy. Although some will point to the massive money pumped into City’s squad, there is little room for arguing against their credentials. Here are three reasons City deserve to be crowned Premier League champions.
Even when City lost Aguero to injury they still had Dzeko to call on. The Bosnian has to be best the best backup striker in the league, and showed just why today with two goals.
Now that is some performance by a so called ‘back up’ striker after Aguerro. Dzeko. #SquadStrength

3rd-choice strikers: Dzeko at City, Ba at Chelsea, Aspas at #lfc. Results this season show it’s so important to have a back-up plan.

City have assembled a squad of top names with experience at the very highest level.
Suarez pfa player of the year? How many big games has he tipped up on? And then how many yaya toure tipped up on? And his goals from mid?

Sergio Aguero, star man for City, big moments require big players and he scored the goal. 1-1.

Having won the title two years ago, Vity have the experience and know-how as they showed at Everton.
Title is firmly in city’s court now, there’s to lose. Don’t see them slipping up with the riches & experience in their squad.
