City seal English title with final kick of season


It could hardly have been more dramatic, or more fitting that Manchester City should win their first English title in 44 years with almost the final kick of the season after a see-saw campaign.

Two stoppage time goals, the winner from one of the season’s outstanding players Sergio Aguerro, sealed QPR’s fate after Joey Barton was sent off and the remaining 10 men came within seconds of a heroic draw.

United won one-nil at Sunderland to finish the season trophyless, while Arsenal secured a last-gasp third place and Champion’s league football next season.

Tottenham finish fourth but will only be in the Champion’s league if Chelsea lose the final. Bolton’s draw consigned them to the second division to join Blackburn and Wolves in the drop.
Everton finished above Liverpool, and get the Europa League along with Newcastle.
