Man City set to move in on Premier League trophy

7:29 am on 8 May 2014

Manchester City are primed to seal the deal towards the end of a hectic English Premier League football season.

City can lay one hand on the trophy this morning with a home victory over Aston Villa that would put them on top, two points clear of Liverpool with one game left.

Meanwhile Manchester United won't be naming their new manager this week.

The Dutch National coach Louis van Gaal is the odds-on favourite to take over from David Moyes, but he refused to answer questions at the Netherlands World Cup training camp last night.

United's new boss is unlikely to be named before their final Premier League game at Southampton on Monday morning.
