Top 10: Teams that bottled it with prize in sight (1)

Published Add your comment

After Manchester City’s 2-2 draw with Sunderland at the Etihad Stadium, the title is now Liverpool’s to lose.

Chelsea may be hot on their heels, but given the brilliance of the likes of Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Steven Gerrard they are tantalisingly close to a maiden Premier League title.

For City, barring a late surge and minor miracle, they will finish the season wondering how, with the squad they possess and attacking swagger that has made them so visibly pleasing, they have not won the biggest domestic prize.

Scroll along to see other teams that have appeared to have the trophy in their hands, only to bottle it at the last.
