Manchester City can win the Premier League title in Saturday’s derby against Manchester United, breaking a number of records in the process.
City beat 3-1 Everton at Goodison Park in Saturday’s late kick-off which means Pep Guardiola’s side can be crowned champions as early as Gameweek 33, beating United’s 2000-01 record of earliest title win by a week in terms of both games played and in the calendar.
With a number of other records still up for grabs – total points, goals scored, etc – for City, Mourinho will hope to delay the coronation for another seven days for when Guardiola & Co. travel to Wembley to face Tottenham.
City will have more than one eye on their Champions League quarter-final second leg against Liverpool after losing the first leg. For United, losing local bragging rights aside, they will want to keep hold of second place with Liverpool and Spurs hot on their heels as the seasons enters the final few weeks.
Manchester City are only missing Sergio Aguero and long-term absentee Benjamin Mendy (both knee) as they look to win the title.
Manchester United are similarly blessed in the medical department as Phil Jones (thigh) is nearing a return.
Otherwise, it is just Sergio Romero (knee) and Daley Blind (ankle) sidelined.
Manchester City likely starting XI:
Ederson; Otamendi, Kompany, Danilo; Walker, De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Gundogan, Zinchenko; Bernardo, Jesus
Manchester United starting XI:
De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, Bailly, Young; Pogba, Matic; Alex, Lingard, Rashford; Lukaku
So its the grand finale of course. Manchester City will grab the title if they can beat a Jose Mourinho side surely eager not to make that happen against them. The first side to score will surely win it. 3-1
