Manchester City's final three away games could cost them the Premier League title

Manchester City Etihad

Manchester City must overcome a poor away record in each of their last three remaining Premier League fixtures on the road if they are to win the title.

The Citizens are the current favourites to win the Premier League title come May 11, but they have three tricky away fixtures to overcome, starting with Liverpool on Sunday.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side travel to Anfield to take on a very dangerous Liverpool side who have now won their last nine games in a row.

Many view this as a game which will ultimately decide where the Premier League trophy will be heading, but going by City’s Premier League record at Liverpool, the Blues have it all to do.

They have won just one of their 16 games at Anfield in the Premier League era, with their only victory coming at the end of the 2002/03 season, more than ten years ago.

City also travel to Selhurst Park at the end of the month, to take on Crystal Palace, and their record there is not much better.

The Blues have won just one of the three Premier League fixtures at Palace, a 2-1 win in September 2004.

City just edged past Palace 1-0 at home earlier this season, and Palace managed to beat Chelsea at Selhurst Park a couple of week ago, making this another tricky fixture for Pellegrini’s side to contend with.

Manchester City’s final away game comes a week after the game at Palace, when the CItizens travel to Goodison Park to take on an Everton side chasing a Champions League spot.

They must overcome a terrible record at Everton to win this one, as they have one only two of the 16 Premier League games at Goodison Park.

The last win here was five years ago, in April 2009, with the Toffees going on to win the past four home meetings in the Premier League.

City have an abysmal combined record at these three clubs to overcome if they are to have any chance of winning the title this season.

In 35 combined Premier League visits to Liverpool, Crystal Palace and Everton, Manchester City have only manager to record four wins.

Manuel Pellegrini must mastermind victories in these crucial games to ensure City lift the Barclays Premier League trophy in May, starting with an enormous game at Anfield on Sunday.
