Pressure is a privilege as Man City look to close out title

508137 at James Street

Manchester City retained the Premier League title on Sunday, securing top spot with an emphatic 4-1 win at Brighton and Hove Albion on the final day of the season.

Foreign coaches are nothing new in English football but the Spaniard and the German have done much more than prove they can deal with the challenges of the Premier League - they have transformed the style of football English fans now expect. 'To be champions you have to score a lot of goals but also concede few, ' says Guardiola, who appears just as happy to gain respect for toughing games out as filtering the genius of Lionel Messi, Arjen Robben or Kevin De Bruyne. I have the feeling next season we'll come back. 'Being so solid is the key point and it has to be the same for our last league game.

Mark O'Haire says: "Fresh from pulling off one of Europe's most memorable comeback victories against Barcelona in midweek, Liverpool will be looking to give themselves the best possible chance of Premier League glory by overcoming a tricky Anfield clash against Wolves on Sunday".

Paying tribute to his mum as his inspiration for "where I get my fight from", he added: "Right now, being here and getting voted the Writers' Player of the Year is incredible and on Sunday, I have the biggest game of my life to go and win".

A wonder strike from captain Vincent Kompany, his first goal from outside the box in 12 years, was needed to see off Leicester 1-0 on Monday, while Sergio Aguero's victor at Burnley the week before crossed the line by 30 millimetres.

City could be boosted by the return of Kevin de Bruyne from injury, but fellow midfielder Fernandinho misses out.

Fighters affiliated to al-Qaeda and the Islamic State group as well as the local Ansarul Islam have been active in the region. Jihadist violence has flared in Burkina Faso since 2016, and this is the third attack on a church in five weeks.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo, whose post-match press conference began with just one reporter seated as Liverpool held their lap of honour, paid tribute to the Reds and City. 'Against Leicester, we were aggressive with the ball and without. We are going to go out there at Brighton at 3 o'clock to win the game. And after one point from their last four games, you would not bank on them fulfilling the first part of the bargain. We all know how privileged we are to do what we do and we know the rewards are totally out of proportion with what other people in society get for doing jobs that are far more important than ours.

Who will be his long term partner hasn't always been clear and in Barcelona they believe Liverpool may have a very ambitious plan indeed.

"City are a fantastic team".

If City come out on top, Wolves will be granted a Europa League opportunity for finishing seventh. "They want to win the Premier League", he said. "He could (be involved)", Guardiola said. 'I love it, the whole of England, even Europe, will be watching.

Here are my two best bets for the final day in the Premier League.
