Abstract: We show that if the universal covering space $ \widetilde{M}$ of a closed 4-manifold $ M$ is finitely dominated then either $ M$ is aspherical, or $ \tilde M$ is homotopy equivalent to $ {S^2}$ or $ {S^3}$, or $ {\pi _1}(M)$ is finite. We also give a criterion for a closed 4-manifold to be homotopy equivalent to one which fibres over the circle.
