MANCHESTER, England -- The Premier League trophy could be out of reach for Manchester City after a 2-2 home draw with last-placed Sunderland on Wednesday that capped a demoralizing four days for title chasers. Philip Rivers Jersey . Samir Nasris 88th-minute equalizer at Etihad Stadium will be of little consolation to City, which is now six points behind league leader Liverpool and four points behind second-place Chelsea. Third-place City has a game in hand but the surprise result against Sunderland, coupled with Sundays 3-2 loss at Liverpool, may be a setback too far in its bid for a second championship in three seasons. "I think we are more mentally tired than physically tired," said City manager Manuel Pellegrini, who is still not giving up hope. "Remember this team, two years ago, were six points behind the leaders and ... won the title at the end. So it is difficult, but it is not the last game we play." Pressure also seems to have struck Evertons battle for the last Champions League spot with Arsenal. Everton became the latest team to slip up against Crystal Palace, losing 3-2 at home to end its seven-match winning run and miss the chance of reclaiming fourth place from Arsenal, which is one point ahead with four matches remaining. "We wanted to win so much that we stopped being ourselves," Everton manager Roberto Martinez said, "and that is what we have to learn from." Palaces fourth straight win means the side can surely start preparing for another season in the top flight and lends further weight to many pundits argument that Tony Pulis is the manager of the season. When Pulis took over in November, Palace was bottom and six points from safety -- now, it is 11th and 10 points above the relegation zone. Sunderland is six points from safety with a game in hand, but could have been a lot closer if goalkeeper Vito Mannone had gathered Nasris shot rather than fumbled it into the back of the net. That could be the difference between staying in the Premier League and being relegated. "Its one more blow," Sunderland manager Gus Poyet said. "I tell you what, Im testing my heart this year." Without the injured David Silva and Yaya Toure and with star striker Sergio Aguero lacking match sharpness, City lacked its usual creativity going forward and was sloppy in possession. Fernandinho gave City the lead in the second minute, running onto a short pass from Aguero that was dummied by Alvaro Negredo and scoring inside Mannones near post, but Sunderland had the better of the chances for the rest of the first half. Connor Wickham finally took one of them in the 73rd minute, volleying in a cross from substitute Emanuele Giaccherini, and the same players combined for Wickhams second that came on the counter-attack in the 83rd. City escaped with a point thanks to Nasri, but Liverpool and Chelsea will be celebrating another twist in the title race. "We believe we can win the title," Fernandinho said. "Chelsea and Liverpool have four games and they may drop some points -- we think we can still win the title." At Goodison Park, Jason Puncheon scored his fourth goal in three games before Scott Dann added a second for Palace for a 2-0 lead after 49 minutes. Substitute Steven Naismith reduced the deficit in the 61st before Palace restored their two-goal advantage through striker Cameron Jerome in the 73rd. Kevin Mirallas scored Evertons second goal in the 86th. Nick Dzubnar Jersey . The All-Pro left tackle agreed to a five-year contract with the Eagles on Wednesday. Peters was signed for 2014, and his new deal adds four years through 2018. Dan Feeney Jersey . In mens doubles, Vancouvers Vasek Pospisil and American Jack Sock reached the quarter-finals with a 7-6 (3), 7-6 (3), 6-4 win over Croatian Mate Pavic and Andre Sa of Brazil. . Almost 40 years to the day, the two teams will meet again, this time at BC Place, to celebrate the past and try to earn important points for the present.KAMLOOPS, B.C. - Natalie Spooner thinks about it a lot, the game crosses Brianne Jenners mind every so often, and Haley Irwin wants to move on.Canadas dramatic come-from-behind 3-2 overtime victory against the United States in the womens gold-medal hockey game at the Sochi Olympics added another memorable moment to the rivalry between the two countries.The stage is a smaller, but another chapter will be written on Saturday night.Irwin, Jennifer Wakefield and Rebecca Johnston scored for Canada on Friday in a 3-1 victory over Finland at the Four Nations Cup tournament that ensured a rematch against the U.S. in the championship game.Its easy to get excited for those games, said Spooner. Those are the games we want to be in and want to play in, so I think were all looking forward to it. Theyre always close games so weve got to bring our best game of the tournament.Canada had all but mathematically clinched a spot in the final after beating the Americans in round-robin play on Thursday. Finland needed an unlikely blowout victory over Canada to advance after the U.S. guaranteed its own spot in the showcase with a 3-0 win over Sweden earlier Friday.Its going to be an awesome game, said Irwin. I think youre going to see again both teams giving it their best effort. The rivalry is there and its for a gold medal.Anything other than a showdown between Canada (3-0) and the U.S. (2-1) at the tournament was never really in doubt as the giants of the womens game again dominated their European opponents.Its always an exciting game — should be a great one, said Canadian head coach Doug Derraugh. You dont have to give them the rah-rah motivational speech for this one.The rosters for the North American teams in Kamloops are missing a lot of the big names from that memorable game nine months ago in Russia as the U.S. and Canada continue to evaluate younger talent with an eye towards next years world championship and the 2018 Olympics. Hayley Wickenheiser and Jayna Hefford are among the 10 veterans not taking part for Canada, while the Americans left 11 of their Olympians off the roster.That doesnt in any way lessen the importance of Saturday.Its huge. Every time we have an opportunity to play against the U.S. its a big deal, said Jenner, who scored the first goal in the Sochi comeback. Weve got a lot of young players here that are just getting their first taste of this rivalry.For their part, the Americans are looking forward to getting another crack at Canada, especially in what will surely be a hostile environment at the Interior Savings Centre.Any time you get a chance to have a U.S.-Canada game its fun, said head coach Ken Klee. It was great for me as a player, its great now as a coach. It will be good atmosphere.Its a hockey game and when theres energy in the building I dont care if youre the visiting team or the home team, you feel the energy and its exciting. Those are the games you want to be playing in.Canada also left it late against the U.S. during round-robin play at the Four Nations, scoring twice in the final five minutes as part of a 3-2 victory that again sent the Americans home unhappy.Thats our goal — to play a full, solid 60 minutes of hockey, said U.S. forward Hilary Knight. We didnt plaay that the other night and were looking forward to the opportunity of playing it again. Rayshawn Jenkins Jersey. In Fridays late game that wrapped up round-robin play, Emerance Maschmeyer made 11 saves to get the win for Canada.Wakefield opened the scoring with 5:14 left in the first period, capping off a nice passing play with Tara Watchorn and Jenner.Finnish goalie Meeri Raisanen, who finished with 46 saves, held her team in during a first period that saw Canada record the first 11 shots before Finland directed one at Maschmeyer.Laura Fortino hit the post on a 3-on-1 short-handed break for Canada early in the second period before Jillian Saulnier had another good chance off the rush with nine minutes gone.Jenner and Irwin then had back-to-back shots from in close, and Spooner tried her luck on a breakaway, but Raisanen was equal to the task on all three occasions.You have to hand it to Finland, theyre a tough team to play against, said Irwin. Even though we generated a bunch of shots I thought there were areas we can definitely be better in.Maschmeyer didnt even face a shot in the period until there were under three minutes to go, but she had to be careful on a scramble in front as Canada held a 34-9 shot advantage though two periods.Irwin, Canadas captain, finally doubled her teams lead at 3:53 of the third on a nice deflection off a Fortino shot past a helpless Raisanen.Riika Valilila scored Finlands second goal of the tournament, swatting a puck home from the slot on a power play at 10:36 to give her team hope, but Johnston iced things into an empty net to seal it with under a minute to go.It wasnt our best total 60 minutes of hockey, but I thought there were some good things, said Jenner. Its a short tournament and weve got to learn from every shift.In Fridays other game, Knight, Emily Pflazer and Brianna Decker scored in the American victory over the Swedes.Brianne McLaughlin-Bittle stopped all 11 shots she faced for the U.S., while Shiann Darkangelo picked up two assists. Sara Grahn made 47 saves for Sweden (0-3), which has yet to score a goal in Kamloops and will play in the third-place game against Finland (1-2).Their goalie played a really great game, said Knight. She made a lot of really great saves, but it wasnt frustrating for us at all. Were a relentless team.Knight gave her team a 1-0 lead at 5:12 of the first before Pfalzer scored on a 5-on-3 power play at 14:25 of the second. Decker then put things completely out of reach with a nice short-handed effort with 31.7 seconds remaining in the period.We had a lot of energy, said Klee. Great chances, moving the puck, moving our feet — those are the things we have to pride ourselves in.It was a fun game.Notes: Canadian forward Jamie Lee Rattray, who has a goal and two assists in two games, sat out against Finland. Derraugh would not give a reason why, adding that she would be a game-time decision for Saturday. ... Canada and the U.S. have played in all but two Four Nations Cup finals. The Americans were upset by Finland during the round-robin portion of the tournament in Lake Placid, N.Y., last year and settled for a disappointing third. ... Canada has won the tournament 13 times, while the U.S. owns the five other titles.
