    Make no mistake, city have dropped only 3 points since boxing day.

    Remarkable really. Truly astonishing. If United had such a form world media would be salivating every match day.

    I live near the city centre on Ordsall Lane and can hear a load of pissed up United fans singing we hate Man City and Liverpool etc. Love it.

    Amidst all the drama & excitement of the Champions League this week it seems to have been forgotten that there's still the little matter of a title race taking place here in England. Man City look destined to win back-to-back Premier League titles. But waiting in the wings are a Liverpool side buoyed by their heroics of Tuesday night. Got to be a comfortable win for City at Brighton surely ?

    Sleep tight everyone :angel:

    How many Premier League goals have City conceded since they last lost in the League? I don't think it'd be many.

    Just 3 since Newcastle, all in 3-1 wins to Arsenal, Watford and Crystal Palace. Not bad in 13 games really.

    Impressive. Those numbers are why City fans and those adopting the 'Anybody But Liverpool' approach should be confident City will retain their title tomorrow.

    Don’t get me wrong I believe City probably will win tomorrow.

    But I’m not buying that it will be comfortable and Brighton have nothing.

    City are the team playing under pressure, Brighton can play with absolute freedom, they’ve been scraping victories of late City, Brighton’s latest result 1-1 away to Arsenal for me tells me it’s not a full gone conclusion City will win, granted Arsenal aren’t exactly outstanding atm and a totally different kettle of fish to the amazing City, but at home Brighton could even though unlikely, have the potential to hold them to a draw.

    The traits of a good side is scraping through to victory when not at ones best, but who knows.....maybe tomorrow is the day they don’t

    I’m not holding my breathe like but ya never know

    Plus, with the run off consecutive victories they've had they're due a blank game.

    Wouldn't this apply to both Liverpool and City?

    Title is citys they’ve been relentless this second half of the season and barely look like conceding never mind losing or drawing. No team can keep them out. Been a hell of a race though and it’s a shame all our clutch goal moments are likely going to be for nothing. We’ll have to improve and go again next year not sure it’ll be enough mind against a juggernaut that can hit 95+ points a season comfortably and go through runs where they beat almost the entire division.

    The one certainty about tomorrow: the manager who doesn't win the title will be called a 'bottler'.

    The last time we played Wolves in our final match of the season was back in 1976. We won that day which meant we clinched the title. Strangely enough, it was the same season we beat Barcelona in the semi-finals of the UEFA Cup. We won that too.

    These things always crop up in a season we’re challenging, means nada really. I remember the supposed omens in the 13/14 season and we know how that turned out

    Even if Brighton go 1 up tomorrow and City have a man sent off I would still bet on them to turn it around (obviously provided it's not too late in the game). Because they keep the ball so well, it wouldn't change the game so much that they would be massively exposed at the back. They're a possession machine who in that instance could easily go 3-3-3 and it would be barely noticeable. I think our only hope tomorrow is a worldie performance from the keeper, combined with an off day for their strikers and multiple shots hitting the woodwork. Highly unlikely all that will happen but if someone had told me that Liverpool and Spurs would qualify for the final in the way they did I would have laughed in their face. Football is a funny old game.

    Truly unreal form since their mid season blip. They've proved last season was not a fluke, and they are setting an unprecedented standard. It's going to take a herculean effort for anyone to stop them while Guardiola is there, and even that might not be enough, as Liverpool are probably going to prove tomorrow.

    Imagine finishing with 97 points in a 38 game season and still not winning the league. Incredible. Under normal circumstances Liverpool would have wrapped up the title in early April.

    Klopp won't, as he's engineered an absolutely phenomenal position in the media where he literally cannot lose due to being the underdog story. (despite spending the most this season)

    Tottenham in the Euro final is a different story though, as it's the first time since he's been here where his boys are favourites. He won't like that at all. It defeats his whole MO.

    He spent the most last summer granted but he wasn't exactly tweaking a title chasing squad, it was an overhaul from a position of only just making the top 4 last season.
    To gain 27 points on this Man City team in one season is remarkable whether we win the league or not. Honestly wouldn't swap Klopp for anyone else right now and that includes Guardiola

    Planning to avoid the footy all day today, go and enjoy the weather, occasionally check the scores on my phone.

    The very real danger of them winning it today is too much to face.

    Hope City are at least two up by half time.

    Would love it if Wolves surprise Liverpool as well, everyone seems to have written them off even though they’ve been one of the teams of the season.

    The title race coming down to the last day of the season with both teams on 90+ points. Unreal stuff.

    Liverpool will likely have a stroll v Wolves. If Wolves weren't certain of 7th place it might have been different. Brighton at home will be going all out to get a result. They drew away to Arsenal last week and but for a pop shot in the 88th minute they would have drawn away to Spurs also. Important that City score an early in that game and then close the game out mid way through the 2nd half.

    If Man City don't win the league today and Chelsea win in Europe, we had a better season.

    If Liverpool don't win the league today but do win in Europe, they've had a similar season to Chelsea (fail in the league, win in Europe).

    If Liverpool win the league and in Europe, I'll think of something to cling onto in order to carry on.

    It's City's to lose really. Can't see how Brighton are getting anything from today's game. The Foden goal against Spurs n obviously the Kompany goal against Leicester will be the season defining moments in the run-in, as those are the only games where they could have dropped points since they last lost a game.

    It really is pretty funny that a team is going to get 95+ points and not win the league.

    Hahaha, losers.

    Why would Brighton go all out? Just to spoil the party?
