Aguero strikes as nervous Manchester City hold firm for crucial win at Burnley

Pep Guardiola’s side now need to win their final games at home to Leicester City and away to Brighton and Hove Albion to retain the title and deny second-placed Liverpool.

City got the breakthrough in the 63rd minute with an uncharacteristically scrappy goal.

Aguero’s shot was chested out and cleared by Matt Lowton on the goalline but technology ruled the effort had crossed.

City struggled to get into their usual rhythm in the first half but came out strongly after the break.

Burnley keeper Tom Heaton did well to keep out a fierce blast from Sergio Aguero at the near post.

Burnley were fortunate to escape a penalty appeal when a drive from Bernardo Silva appeared to strike the arm of Burnley’s Ashley Barnes.

Heaton did well to keep out another fierce drive, this time from Bernardo Silva, before City finally took the lead.

Raheem Sterling went close to a second but Burnley defender Ben Mee produced a wonderful goalline clearance to keep the Clarets in the game.
