Manchester City edge closer to the Premier League title after victory at Burnley

Burnley 0-1 Manchester City

Manchester City edged closer to the Premier League title with victory over Burnley at Turf Moor.

Sergio Aguero‘s second-half goal helped City regain top spot – a point ahead of challengers Liverpool – with two matches of the season left.

Argentina striker Aguero put City ahead when his close-range effort was deemed to have gone in by goalline technology despite a last-ditch clearance by Matt Lowton.

Gabriel Jesus almost scored a second for City, only for Ben Mee to brilliantly deny him on the goalline.

City were unfortunate not to be awarded a penalty immediately after the interval when Bernardo Silva’s shot struck the arm of Ashley Barnes inside the area.

Burnley rarely threatened as City dominated the possession, although Chris Wood broke clear in the first half only for a poor touch to let him down.
