Man City need one win to clinch title

April 02, 2018 00:00:00

LIVERPOOL, Apr 1 (AP): Manchester City cruised past Everton 3-1 to ensure Pep Guardiola can seal his first English Premier League title by beating Manchester United next Saturday.

Goals from Leroy Sane, Gabriel Jesus, and Raheem Sterling set up the chance for City to become the quickest side to clinch the Premier League with six matches remaining. A win next week will beat United's 2000-01 season record by one game.

Guardiola has already won domestic titles with Barcelona and Bayern, but he's won the Champions League only with the Catalan club.

European duties are next for City and a return to Merseyside for Wednesday's Champions League quarterfinal first leg against Liverpool, which inflicted City's only league loss so far this season.

Last season, Everton was the scene of Guardiola's heaviest league defeat at City but there was never any chance of that 4-0 reverse being repeated on Saturday.
