Manchester City clawed their way back to earn a 2-2 draw at West Ham on Sunday, giving themselves a title boost just after it looked like it could slip away. City trailed 2-0 at the break and rallied in the second half to take home a point, but Riyad Mahrez’s late penalty miss means the title winners may not be decided till next Sunday.
A first-half brace by Jarrod Bowen would be cancelled out by a goal from Jack Grealish after the half and an own goal by Vladimir Coufal. City will feel like it was an opportunity missed, however, as Mahrez had a chance to get a winner late from the spot. After a VAR review, Craig Dawson was judged to have fouled Gabriel Jesus in the box. West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski read it the whole way, saving the penalty from Mahrez to see the points shared.
While it’s a significant result in the title race, City being able to salvage a point is important as they are now four points ahead of Liverpool. The Reds travel to face Southampton on Tuesday and will need to overturn things in goal differential where they trail by six while also hoping that City drops more points on the final day of the season.
