Manchester City inched ahead of Liverpool in the Premier League title race after overcoming a stern test to beat Burnley 1-0.

City were frustrated for an hour at Turf Moor, but Sergio Aguero broke the deadlock in the 63rd minute when his shot from close range went just over the line before Matt Lowton could clear.

Goal-line technology showed the ball was 25.3 millimetres over the line and it was that fine margin that proved decisive as City held on for a tense win, their 12th in a row in the Premier League, to move one point ahead of Liverpool at the top of the table.

City, who also had a Gabriel Jesus shot blocked on the line by Ben Mee, will retain the title if they win their final two games against Leicester and Brighton. Liverpool travel to Newcastle and then host Wolves on the final day, but former Liverpool captain.
