Pep Guardiola praises Kevin De Bruyne for scoring four goals against Wolves

Man City boss Pep Guardiola has already revealed that a final-day showdown with Liverpool for the Premier League title is his “dream”.

The current champions are a point ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s men who head into the season finale after the Reds’ narrow 2-1 win in Southampton on Tuesday night. Should City beat Aston Villa on the final day, they will be confirmed as champions while any points lost open the door to their next challengers who take on Wolves at Anfield.

It’s going to be an anxious Sunday afternoon for players and fans alike, but it’s actually a situation that has already materialized.

Ironically, both Liverpool and Manchester City were heading towards exactly the same scenario on the final day of the 2018/19 season. Guardiola’s men were once again a point clear ahead of their trip to Brighton, while the Reds took on Wolves on home soil in fascinating fashion.

Ahead of the crucial clash with the Seagulls, Guardiola revealed he enjoyed the challenge of lifting the trophy on the final day of the season. He said: “It’s a dream, a privilege. I love it.

“All of England will be watching, probably Europe. There is no top 4 [battle, with three places secure and Arsenal needing a miracle to pip Spurs]no relegation problems, just this title.

Who do you think will win the Premier League on the final day of the season? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

“It will be a pleasure to speak to the players on Sunday. And my message to them is: ‘Go out there and play like you’ve been playing the last two seasons. Be yourself and whatever happens, it it’s unbelievable what you did.’ That’s it.”

Man City were of course successful in their quest to lift the title, although after a brief 1-0 deficit against Brighton there was a brief scare from Glenn Murray’s opening goal. Rapid-fire goals from Sergio Agüero and Aymeric Laporte got the visitors back on track before Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gündogan ensured after the break – rendering Liverpool’s comfortable win over Wolves meaningless.

This meant City became the first team to win consecutive Premier League titles, while Guardiola has personally guided the club to three crowns and hopes to add a fourth on Sunday. Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp has already warned his opposite number that in the event of any major slip-ups, his side will be ready to pounce.

After the win at St Mary’s he said: “I’m second and I’m like, ‘Yeah, of course, City wins.’ But this is football. And we still have to beat wolves and have an ear in Manchester that’s not far away. If we win the championship it would be deserved too but we have to win. Whatever happens is going to happen because it’s a pretty special group.”
