That’s the way to do it. No alarms and no surprises greeted Manchester City last night.
It was tense, for a while, but the best team won — the match and, most probably, the league.
A point against West Ham United on Sunday will do it, given the plus-13 goal difference advantage over Liverpool.
The fourth goal of the game was Manchester City’s 100th in the Barclays Premier League this season, an amazing achievement no matter the budget.
There are plenty of teams who have spent a few quid winning the title but, if the finale goes according to plan, few will have done it with as much style as City.
They need four goals to overtake the 103 scored by Carlo Ancelotti’s Chelsea team in 2009-10.
