They are out of the equation. 3 more places are up for grabs. Yes, 3 not 2. City aren't home and dry yet remember that.
9 points clear of 5th placed Arsenal is not safe with 21 points to gain.
Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal, Everton and even Liverpool have a chance of qualifying for next season's Champions League.
3 of those teams above will not get a place, but still.
Manchester City are not out of the title race despite being 12 points behind, but they are not safe in the top 4 yet... a couple more wins and that will be solved, but City have been up and down all season. Not winning a match in this season's UEFA Champions League, losing in the 3rd Round of the Capital One Cup to Aston Villa.
Lost a couple of matches that they should have won, against Sunderland, Southampton and Everton hence why the gap at the top is what it is.
So.. in conclusion the finale to this season's EPL will be fascinating, dramatic and very interesting. Watch out over the next few weeks.
