The 2017-18 Premier League title could be wrapped up on Saturday night, as champions-elect Manchester City host arch rivals Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium (17:30).
The Citizens, who hold a huge 16-point lead over tomorrow’s opponents and runners-up, need a victory against The Red Devils to lift their third Premier League title in seven years.
Pep Guardiola’s side, who surprisingly lost 3-0 at Anfield to Liverpool in their UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg clash in midweek, have won their last five league outings on the bounce.
Meanwhile Jose Mourinho’s visitors, who face Tottenham Hotspur in the semi-finals of the FA Cup later this month, have won their last four Premier League games, maintaining their two-point lead over fellow rivals Liverpool in third place.
With just seven league fixtures remaining this campaign, only all three points will see City claim the 2017-18 title on Saturday night, as rivals United look to delay their neighbours’ celebrations.
