As the fight for Premier League supremacy comes to a spectacular conclusion on Sunday, Pep Guardiola urged history-chasing Manchester City to embrace their title “destiny”. Thanks to an eight-game winning streak, Guardiola’s unbeatable squad enters the last day of the season with a two-point lead over second-place Arsenal. With a victory over West Ham, City will have won a record fourth straight English title.

In 17 league games this year, Arsenal has been almost perfect themselves, with 15 victories and one draw—away against City. But it appears that the Gunners’ expensive 2-0 loss to Aston Villa last month will be the deciding factor in an exciting title fight that included Liverpool up until their recent collapse.

To snap their 20-year title drought, Arsenal, which finished second last year, needs to defeat Everton at the Emirates Stadium and hope City loses. Guardiola will concentrate on making sure his players complete the task on their own rather than relying on Everton, who have nothing to gain, to do a favor.

The choice we make will determine our fate, so forget about expecting Everton to take any action. All season long, I have seen Arsenal,” he remarked. “We just concentrate on what needs to be done to defeat West Ham. I am not thinking about anything else than what needs to be done to defeat West Ham.”

In the tremendous heat of the final stretch, City has excelled consistently once again. Since mid-December, Guardiola’s team has only lost six points in draws with Chelsea, Liverpool, and Arsenal.

The world’s most watched league has been questioned for its competitiveness as City approaches its sixth championship in seven seasons under Guardiola. However, the Catalan coach has responded angrily to claims that the Premier League has become dull and that City’s success is only because to their Abu Dhabi-based owners’ vast financial resources.
Guardiola declared, “It’s not boring, it’s difficult.”

Even though Arsenal has won 27 Premier League games this season, a club record, they may not be able to overcome City. “We have to give ourselves the opportunity to live a beautiful day on Sunday, where the dream is still alive and is possible,” Mikel Arteta, the Gunners manager, stated.

“It’s football and once we are there we just have to live the moment.” Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, will have an emotional send-off to cap off his incredible nine-year tenure, but the Reds will still finish third no matter how they play Wolves at Anfield. “I spoke before about how hard it will be to say goodbye,” Klopp stated.

“I really adore everything about this property. I carry wonderful memories and relationships with me that I will always have.” Manchester United’s terrible season puts them in danger of not playing in Europe at all.

In order to avoid ending outside the top seven for the first time since 1990, Erik ten Hag’s team, currently ranked ninth, needs to improve on Newcastle’s performance at Brentford when they face Brighton. A point against demoted Sheffield United will guarantee fifth place for Tottenham, while a draw against Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge will guarantee a top-six finish for in-form Chelsea.

All six of the top teams will undoubtedly advance to Europe, and if Manchester United does not surprise City in the FA Cup final the following week, finishing seventh may be sufficient.

If Nottingham Forest wins at Burnley and Luton loses to Fulham, they will drop to the bottom.

Because of their significantly worse goal differential, the Hatters will require a mathematical miracle to win, even if Luton wins and Forest loses.
