PostSubject: Drama as Man City clinch title.(Football/Soccer)   Mon May 14, 2012 3:11 am

Manchester City clinched the Premier League crown following a 3-2 win over Queens Park Rangers which was awash with drama.

Needing to match Manchester United's result at Sunderland, City
surrendered a first-half lead to 10-man Rangers before roaring back in
added time to deny their neighbours the title in spite of their 1-0 win
at the Stadium of Light.

Pablo Zabaleta's 39th minute goal seemed
to have put City on the road to victory and a first title in 44 years
but the home side struggled to add a second to give them breathing
Within three minutes of the break they were punished when
Djibril Cisse took advantage of Joleon Lescott's awful mistake to bring
Rangers level.

The game took another swing in City's favour when
Joey Barton was sent off for retaliating to a tangle with Carlos Tevez.
His offence was compounded when he kicked out at Sergio Aguero as the
QPR midfielder was dragged from the field.

But with City laying
siege to the Rangers goal and ready for the coup-de-gras, the visitors
broke away through substitute Armond Traore and his cross was headed in
by Jamie Mackie.

City threw everything at the Rangers defence and
with the title seemingly slipping away, Edin Dzeko gave them hope before
Aguero fired in with just a minute of stoppage time remaining to send
the Etihad faifhful into sheer ecstasy.
