Manchester City looks set to clinch the Premier League title after a 2-0 win against Crystal Palace, while Chelsea maintained their hold on fourth place after beating Fulham by the same scoreline.

Pep Guardiola’s side moved 13 points clear at the top, thanks to second-half goals from Sergio Aguero and Ferran Torres at Selhurst Park.

City will be crowned English champions for the third time in four seasons if second-placed Manchester United loses at home to Liverpool today.

If United avoids defeat, City can seal the title with a victory against Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium next Saturday.

City, who surrendered the title to Liverpool last season, overcame a mediocre first half with two goals in 84 seconds.
