Brighton & Hove Albion v Manchester City

Brighton & Hove Albion v Manchester City

"One won't win the title, whoever doesn't will come second with an incredible amount of points".

Laporte is hoping to be crowned a champion this weekend when Manchester City travel to Brighton on the final afternoon of the season.

But anything less than that would let Liverpool in to snatch glory if they see off Wolves at Anfield. But I'd much rather be on our side, to know if we win the game, it's ours. I didn't expect it when we were seven points behind against this Liverpool to be in the position we are now.

Furthermore, both sides are outperforming their xG against, which stands at 25.14 for City and 28.26 for Liverpool. It's not just for their kicking and play out from the back that Ederson and Allison are considered two of the best goalkeepers in the world.

Brighton have played 11 top-flight matches against reigning champions without winning (D2, L9), more than any other team.

The two team's most frequently used first XIs cost plenty, but it's no surprise that City's cost more.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes Bernardo Silva has been the best player in the Premier League this season.

With the clubs on 95 and 94 points respectively, whoever finishes second will have the biggest points total for any runner-up in English top flight history.

Liverpool head into the game one point behind Manchester City.

In his final pre-game press conference of te season, Pep Guardiola's looked at the chances of adding another title to his honours.

It sounds wild but there could be a twist ahead.

Mark Lawrenson is backing Manchester City to win the Premier League title by beating Brighton and Hove Albion away from home on Sunday.

"If the Reds win one or two trophies, they will receive a well-deserved heroes' welcome and we will put on a show to make the city proud". Thus, a single game play-off would be required to decide the champions. But now is not the moment to say how well we've done.
