Manchester City are everything except guaranteed of a spot in next season’s Champions League as Manuel Pellegrini’s chance at the club finished with a draw at Swansea.
They were denied a win as Andre Ayew’s avoided free-show counterbalanced Kelechi Iheanacho’s short proximity opener.
The draw abandons them three focuses in front of Manchester United, whose last amusement, against Bournemouth, was surrendered.
City’s immensely unrivaled objective contrast implies United would require a 19-0 win over the Cherries to take fourth place.
From various perspectives, Manchester City’s showcase at the Liberty Stadium was a fitting approach to end a disappointing season that started with such guarantee before limping to a palatable yet less than impressive conclusion.
Iheanacho – the on-field exemplification of a conceivably energizing future – again showed his sharpness before objective to jab home the opening objective after a Sergio Aguero shot had been spared in the fifth moment.
It was the 19-year-old’s fourteenth objective of the season and his eighth from his initial 12 shots on focus in the Premier League.
In any case, he and his side neglected to expand on it, missing various opportunities to put the amusement to bed, with the youthful forward and his normally deadly Argentine accomplice Aguero especially inefficient.
It cleared out them powerless against a Swansea equalizer – which came graciousness of a 25-yard Ayew free-kick that redirected in off Fernando’s head – and a conceivably wrecking second in a strained second half for the away side.
