Manchester City simply needed a win against West Ham United to ensure they’d win the 2013-14 Premier League title. Fortunately for them, Liverpool scored an own goal and trailed heading into halftime in their game easing the pressure, but City still scored to take a lead and keep things in their control. Just in case. And what a goal it was from Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri. He stepped up from a bout 25 yards out and booted a ball through traffic towards the bottom left hand corner of the goal, just out of the reach of the keeper. It hit the post and bounced in giving City a 1-0 lead and putting them closer to the Premier League title.   Behind the goal angle:Nasri 1-2   A close up angle: Nasri 1-3
