With just a single game week remaining, most prizes available have been seized but the ultimate one. This is the most competitive season yet. Manchester City just a point ahead of Liverpool with 95 and 94 points respectively. Liverpool’s current points would have been enough to win the league in 25 of the past 27 years of the Premier league with the exception of Chelsea’s 04/05 and City’s 17/18 centurions. It’s a shame that one will lose despite a stellar campaign.
City travel to Brighton and Hove Albion knowing just a 1-0 win is enough to lift the trophy. Pep Guardiola has offered injury updates on Kevin De Bruyne and Fernandinho. The Belgian midfielder trained well and is eligible to play the final game. A string of hamstring injuries have thwarted his season drastically. Fernandinho on the other hand will be unable to feature due to his knee injury.
City’s recent wins have been by a fluke just to add on skittish title race. Captain Vincent Kompany’s belter against Leicester ensured their summit on the league. A win will cap a stellar campaign.
Liverpool host an obstinate Wolves side known for toppling premier league giants. Their record against the top 6 is tremendous having won or drawn against all sides in all competition. Nevertheless, the title-decider will be at Anfield fresh from humiliating Barcelona to progress to the Champions league final two years in a row. Liverpool will look to channel motivation from the noisy home fans. Liverpool’s confidence will be over the roof following the midweek madness. A solid win will clinch them the title only if City loses.
Regarding injuries Jurgen Klopp has provided positive on Salah following the the concussion suffered during the win against Newcastle. Henderson and Robertson are also confirmed to be able to feature.
With City and Watford battling it out in the FA Cup final, a win for Watford will ensure automatic qualification to the Europa league group stages. A city win on the hand will gift seventh placed Wolves a place in the Europa league group stages.
Arsenal will look to clinch the Europa league title as they face Chelsea in another all English European tie. A win for them will ensure Champions League football for them next season rather than trying overturning an 8 goal difference to beat Spurs to the top four.
As the Premier league concludes, many(except United fans) will agree that it has been nothing short of exhilarating. See you at the cup finals.
