Man City 1st, Liverpool 2nd
Wednesday was massive for Man City.
The Sky Blues are now the firm favourites to win the Premier League title after a 2-0 victory at Man United.
Second half goals from Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane earned City the pivotal win at Old Trafford.
The win lifted Man City above Liverpool to the summit of the league.
Both City and Liverpool have three matches remaining.
If City win all their games they will be crowned champions, regardless of how Liverpool finish the season.

Man United’s Paul Pogba
Undoubtedly the big talking point from the PFA team was the inclusion of Man United’s Paul Pogba.
Should the French World Cup winner have been selected?
Pogba returned to form when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over from Jose Mourinho. However Pogba has also suffered during large parts of the season as his attitude and commitment have come into question.
Social media reaction
Eden Hazard has been a regular on the PFA nominations list since 2012 – 5 times out of 7. First time he doesn’t make the TOTY when nominated.

Just imagine the outcry on here if journalists had included Paul Pogba In their Premier League team of the year?

Here’s why Pogba is in PFA Team of the Year. His purple patch will have coincided with when the votes were cast. Was a fantastic run in an overall bad season… pic.twitter.com/ROT7ybfyE4

I’m absolutely baffled how Pogba gets into the team of the season, he downed tools to get Mourinho sacked, had a few good weeks when he left, and now looks like his head is elsewhere again.

As a United fan there’s no way Paul Pogba should be in the PFA team of the year! 2 months playing well and a load of penalties isn’t anywhere near decent. Embarrassing to be honest
