(CNN) – This Sunday it all boiled down to this: a win City of Manchester Pep Guardiola’s team is set to retain the Premier League title against Aston Villa at home in the final of England’s top-flight season.
However, City will allow a draw or defeat Liverpool Chance of winning and snatching the title from the reigning champion.
Three years ago, City beat Liverpool by one point for the Premier League title, and they are eager to do it again.
Since a 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Etihad Stadium on April 10, City have comfortably won their next three home games by 13 goals.
Prior to Sunday’s matches, Cardiola’s side had a week off, while Aston Villa played on Thursday and drew 1-1 with Burnley. Liverpool also beat Southampton 2-1 in a midweek match.
Statistics indicate that Liverpool will beat the Wolves at Anfield on Sunday. Since losing to Leicester on 28 December, Liverpool have not lost in 14 of their last 17 league games.
If Liverpool can win the title, Jurgen Klopp’s team has a chance to get an unprecedented fourfold victory over Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 28 in the State de France in Paris.
“We basically reached the ‘final’ in everything we competed for,” Globe said before Sunday’s game against the Wolves.
“Taking the two domestic trophies, the European Cup and the Premier League campaign to the finals is tantamount to a final. It’s an understatement to say how proud I am of our team and our club.”
Ten years ago, in a similar situation against Queens Park Rangers at home, until Sergio Aguero made his mark in the 94th minute, City caused almost a catastrophe.
With City trailing 2-1 in the 92nd minute, Edin Dzeko equalized as they needed a win over QPR to win their first English top division title in 44 years.
Then, at 93:20 in the final minute of the game, a composed Aguero pushed his way through QPR’s frantic defense and secured the victory to capture the 2011/12 Premier League.
Aguero’s goal is immortalized in the form of a statue outside Etihad Stadium, which opened earlier this month.
“Fight to the End”
Sunday’s game at Etihad has the potential to deliver several plot twists.
The manager of Aston Villa is former Liverpool great Steven Gerrard, who will certainly help in awarding the title to the club that failed to win as a player.
The current Aston Villa squad includes two former Liverpool players: Philip Goodinho And Danny Ings.
“Still difficult [ganar la Premier League]Guardiola City’s website, he said.
Referring to Globe’s team that won the Premier League title in the 2019/2020 season, Cardiola added: “Liverpool have always been successful in the last five years, except for the unstoppable year.
“Every day when you fight in the Premier League and fight to the end, it gives you joy, and you’re happy when you win.”
“It’s not a drink, it’s a routine. Doing a routine is the hardest thing in our lives.”
After 370 Premier League games this season, eight of the 10 games played on Sunday have implications for the title, qualification for next season’s European tournament or exit from the Championship.
Tottenham Hotspur can secure a place in the Champions League by avoiding defeat to already relegated Norwich.
With Norwich City and Watford already out, Burnley will have to equalize Leeds United’s decision to ensure security in the Premier League.
But if this season has taught us anything, expect the unexpected at both ends of the table.
According to Apta, this is the first match in the history of the tournament, where it is mathematically possible for each level to advance to the final round of the tournament.
