Manchester City was held to a 2-2 draw by Arsenal on Sunday which has threatened its chance to be in top four in English premier league.
Sergio Aguero put City ahead in the eighth minute but Olivier Giroud quickly levelled.
Kevin de Bruyne made it 2-1 early in the second half with a fine individual effort, only for Alexis Sanchez to fire in an equaliser from the edge of the box
Wilfried Bony almost restored City’s lead when he volleyed against the bar but there was to be no late winner in Manuel Pellegrini’s last game in charge at the Etihad.
While the draw means Arsenal need just a point on the final weekend to secure a top-four finish, City are in danger of being without Champions League football in Pep Guardiola’s first season in charge.
Manchester United could move a point above their rivals into fourth if they win their game in hand at West Ham in midweek. United then host Bournemouth in their last fixture while City go to Swansea.
However, Manchester city boss Manuel Pellegrini still hopes that his team can still do better.
“It’s not finished. When things are not in your own hands you need to depend on other teams, but in football you never know, we will have our heads up and not give up until the last day, he said.
