Manchester City will be crowned Premier League champions on Sunday if Liverpool beat Man United as ‘deadly’ Sergio Aguero shows his class at Crystal Palace

Manchester City could be crowned Premier league champions on Sunday after Sergio Aguero stole the show during a 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace.

Aguero, who will leave the club when the season ends, reminded everyone of his enduring class with a stunning finish at Selhurst Park on Saturday to break the deadlock.

How many times have we seen this down the years?

Ferran Torres made it two just moments later and now all eyes will turn to Old Trafford, where City could be handed the title by current champions Liverpool.

If Liverpool beat Man United, Pep Guardiola’s side will be confirmed as this season’s title-winners with four matches to spare.

But even if United get a result, it would only delay the inevitable as City showed once again why they’re so far above the rest.

City may not have to play again before winning the title

With the likes of Kevin De Bruyne on a star-studded bench of players being rested for the second leg against PSG, City’s second team still eased past Palace in the end.

His 57th-minute goal, a fierce half-volley smashed in at the near post, was the visitors’ first shot on target and showed there is still a place for the 32-year-old’s ruthlessness at the top of the game.

Speaking on commentary for talkSPORT, former Premier League striker Dean Ashton said: “What it shows is, no matter what’s happened this season, no matter the fact he’s leaving this season, if you switch off against Aguero, he can be deadly.”

Torres scored his tenth goal of the season

Torres curled a lovely left-footed effort from outside the box moments later to ensure the title showdown at Old Trafford tomorrow.

After winning the League Cup, a double is certain for City, the only question is whether they can make it a treble by winning the Champions League.
