Manchester City control league title race after comeback 3-2 win over Everton at Goodison Park

Everton did their friends across Stanley Park no favors on Saturday night, as Edin Dzeko scored twice to keep Manchester City's charge for the title alive with a 3-2 win. The result put City atop the table for at least a night on goal difference; Chelsea can take over the lead on Sunday with a win over Norwich City while Liverpool can do the same on Monday with a win at Crystal Palace in London.
But make no mistake: the initiative is firmly in City's hands now. This was their toughest remaining game on the schedule, and if they win out against Aston Villa and West Ham, they cannot be caught. The result also had a cascading effect. Everton automatically qualified for the Europa League and guaranteed Arsenal will finish in the top four and gain a place in the UEFA Champions League next season. That means that Hull are unlikely Europa League entrants as well, as they are in the finals of the FA Cup against Arsenal, and so take the automatic slot win or lose. via Manchester City control league title race after comeback 3-2 win over Everton at Goodison Park | FOX Sports on MSN.
