Manchester City will be crowned Premier League champions if they defeat Aston Villa on a packed day for the Premier League TV schedule.


City sit one point clear of Liverpool in the title race. They must overcome Reds' legend Steven Gerrard's Villa side to guarantee the title on their terms. Anything less would present Liverpool with a tap-in they surely couldn't miss.

Pep Guardiola will be desperate for his side to play their natural game and let their quality do the talking, but as Manchester City fans will be more than aware, nothing is ever straightforward on the final day.

Aston Villa could still achieve a top-10 finish should a host of results fall their way. However, a victory that would take them into the top half would be completely swallowed up by the narrative of preventing a City title victory.

Former Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho will also hope to do his old side a favour, but City head into the game as clear favourites.

Our prediction: Man City v Aston Villa

Gerrard must keep his team focused on Aston Villa. They must forget the narratives, the headlines, the drama of the occasion, and simply focus on the task at hand.

In their three other league encounters against City or Liverpool this season, they've lost all three by a solitary goal. Do not expect City to blow them away.

On paper, City should do the business and they would be crowned worthy champions. They would fully deserve their victory and should be praised for their continuing dominance of the Premier League... but football isn't played on paper.

Villa have shown they can defend and only one team outside the top seven has found the net more often than them this season. This title race isn't over.

Our prediction: Man City 1-1 Aston Villa (14/1 at bet365)
