Gerrard's title? Man City could be stripped of 2014 Prem crown

Manchester City could be stripped of their 2013/14 Premier League title.

City have been banned from European competition for the next two seasons by UEFA due to "serious breaches" of their financial fair play rules.

The club have appealed against the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, but if it is upheld it is likely that the Premier League will also investigate their past dealings.

And the Daily Mail says a commission could deduct points retrospectively, meaning their 2014 title win may be in danger.

City won the league in the 2013/2014 season in one of the closest title races in recent years, finishing on 86 points- just four ahead of their nearest challengers Liverpool.

But UEFA have stated that the period between 2012-2016 was when City overstated their sponsorship income, meaning that in theory the 2014 title win could be stripped and handed to Liverpool retrospectively.
