EPL GW 36 Results: Manchester City Set to Win EPL Title as Arsenal Lose Out on 3 Critical Points
The loss for Arsenal means that they have now lost out on the English Premier League title, having only two games left to play and being 4 points behind Manchester City.
Gameweek 36 of the English Premier League just happened and Manchester City are now set to win the EPL Title after Arsenal lost out on 3 critical points. Man City were lethal as always and beat Everton as Arsenal lost out to Brighton. Here are EPL GW 36 results.
Manchester City Set to Win the EPL Title After Beating Everton
Man City are well on their way to another EPL Title win and are set to retain the title after beating Everton 3-0. The win now puts Man City at the top of the EPL Table with 85 points, 4 points more than Arsenal who are currently second with 81 points. City also have a game in hand and this means that Arsenal, who have played 36 matches so far, only have two remaining games this season and are unlikely to upend City's lead.
Another Brace for Silky Ilkay as City Beat Everton
City's Ilkay Gundogan scored a brace against Everton, doing the most to secure City's league lead. 'Silky Ilkay' scored his first in the 37th minute, following it up with a second in the 51st minute.
Erling Haaland scored the other goal in the 39th minute continuing his goal domination. Everton were grossly overpowered and did not manage a reply goal.

Arsenal Lose Out on EPL Title
The loss for Arsenal means that they have now lost out on the English Premier League title, having only two games left to play and being 4 points behind Manchester City who have three games remaining. City need only win one or two of their remaining games, and Arsenal have no hope of catching up with them even if they win both of the remaining matches.
It is a disappointing end to what has been a phenomenal season for Arsenal, and a very thrilling come-from-behind for Manchester City who are looking to win a treble: EPL, FA Cup, and the UEFA Champions League. Read more on how Man City performed in the UCL Semifinals 1st leg below.
