Manchester City and Everton suffer setbacks

1:13 pm on 17 April 2014

Manchester City's Premier League title hopes in English football have been dealt a major blow, held to an upset 2-2 home draw by bottom-placed Sunderland.

Third-placed City are now six points behind leaders Liverpool with only one game in hand.

Everton's suffered a setback too, losing 3-2 at home to Crystal Palace.

That's dented the Toffees' chances of a top-four finish and automatic Champions League qualification. Everton's first defeat in eight games leaves them a point adrift of fourth-placed Arsenal, with four games remaining.
