7:04 am on 23 April 2012

Manchester City's bid for the English Premier League football title is still alive after cross-town rivals United were held to a 4-all draw by Everton.

City closed the gap to 3 points with 3 matches left after they beat relegated Wolves 2-nil, while Everton scored twice in the last 7 minutes to share the points at Old Trafford.

City's Ivory Coast midfielder Yaya Toure says they had almost given up hope when they heard United were leading 4-2, but now the dream is still alive.

City and United meet at Eastlands next week.

Also today West Brom beat Liverpool 1-nil.
