The Title Race of Neighbors


Mario Balotelli, Aguero….ooooo.. Staggering just staggering he won the league with 90 seconds of stoppage time to play. Where football go from here. The blue moon has risen, city is champions, and they did it in most staggering fashion. – Peter Drury (after Aguero’s goal against QPR).

Manchester United had to win and hope Manchester City doesn’t. In 2012 the premier league was in Red hot zone where neighbors were competing for the title. Man City was waiting for their first title after 44 years, while United was trying to add one more in their cabinet. In 20th min Wayne Rooney scored for United against Sunderland AFC and put the United front. The scoreline was 1-0 which remains throughout the match.

Manchester City was facing the pressure of losing from the top of the table. But at 35 min Pablo Zabaleta put the ball behind the net and they were again table topper. Djibril Cisse stun city with an equalizer. The city was capitulating after Joey Barton is sent off for QPR, Jamie Mackie put the Londoners ahead against all the odds, 1 man down QPR scored at 66 min. And this header crushed all the city’s hopes. Now United was 3 points clear with 24 minutes of normal time remaining.
