Man City stumble in the EPL title race
Mar 15, 2022
Man City’s EPL title hopes have suffered a setback, after they were held to a goalless draw by Crystal Palace this morning.
This is the first time in 18 consecutive league matches the defending champions have failed to score.
A win would have seen City go six points clear of Liverpool…instead, they now hold a four-point advantage over the Reds.
It also means Liverpool can cut City’s lead to just one point if they beat Arsenal on Thursday morning.
Real Madrid have opened up a 10-point lead at the summit of La Liga, after a comfortable 3-0 win over Mallorca this morning.
Karim Benzema scored twice to take his career goal tally to 412…overtaking Thierry Henry as the highest French scorer in history.
Benzema, however, appeared to suffer a calf problem late in the game…making him an injury concern ahead of their huge El Classico clash against Barcelona next Monday.
Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard could make a summer move for another one of his former Liverpool teammates.
Reports say he’s keeping tabs on Luis Suarez, amid reports the veteran striker is seeking to leave Atletico Madrid at the end of the season.
This comes after Gerrard brought in ex-Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho on loan from Barcelona in January.
Rafa Nadal has made the last-16 of the Indian Wells tennis Masters, with a straight-sets win over Dan Evans.
The Spaniard has yet to lose in 2022.
Meanwhile, Daniil Medvedev suffered a third-round defeat to Gael Monfils…and will lose his world number one ranking as a result.
