Pep Guardiola had one eye for next week’s second leg semi-final against Paris Saint-Germain after making eight changes today, but City could enter the game as Premier League champions after being Palace today.
A slice of magic from Sergio Aguero set them on their way to a 2-0 victory at Selhurst Park, where Ferran Torres scored the second just 84 seconds later, leaving them on the brink of the title.
City’s could have had a bigger profit margin when they turned on the style with Raheem Sterling denied by the woodwork and Joao Cancelo getting close too.
With four games to go, City has 80 points, 13 for Manchester United. The current reigning champions Liverpool will head to Old Trafford on Sunday knowing that a win will seal the title for City.
