City has a firm grip on the title race having amassed a whopping 62 points from 22 games. While rivals Manchester United are second with 47 points and Chelsea third on 46.

The visitors had opened the scoring with a penalty just before halftime after central defender John Stones had fouled Bobby Reid, who dispatched the spot kick with aplomb.
Kevin De Bruyne’s equalizer soon after the break turned the tide. But Manchester City had to wait until the 92nd minute to grab the winner when Argentine substitute Aguero darted in to head home.
“My players were fantastic because in football you can win, you can lose, but we try until the end, ” City manager Pep Guardiola said.
The hosts enjoyed the majority of early possession and came close to taking the lead when Bernardo Silva’s deflected effort rippled the side netting in the 15th minute before De Bruyne forced visiting keeper Frank Fielding into a sharp save.
