MADRID, 21 May. (EUROPA PRESS) –
Manchester City will try to conquer this Sunday its fourth Premier League in the last five years on the last day of the 2021-22 season that it faces in the lead with a point advantage over Liverpool, which will be on the lookout for a possible slip of the ‘ citizens’.
Pep Guardiola’s team is very close to continuing to make history in England with a brutal dominance in the last five seasons. Only Liverpool, two years ago, was able to interrupt City’s dominance, which is beginning to approach the list of winners of the most historic teams in the country that invented this sport.
The ‘sky blues’ do not depend on anyone and a victory would without further ado give them a well-deserved Premier after their dominance for almost the entire championship. But victory is not only useful for a City that would also be champions as long as it achieves the same result as Liverpool, who will play everything in less than a week for the Champions League final against Real Madrid.
A priori, City have it very simple because they play at home against Aston Villa who no longer have any goals. Those from Birmingham occupy the fourteenth position – they are already saved – and for days they have not had enough points to reach the European positions.
Liverpool, who may have their minds set on the final in Paris, plays at Anfield against some ‘Wolves’ who will defend eighth place -also without access to the Conference League- and trusts a possible tie with City to get a slice in a day which will be played in a unified schedule.
In addition, Chelsea will certify third place, which is virtual from this week, and Tottenham will try to defend their Champions position against a relegated Norwich. The ‘spurs’ are squeezed by an Arsenal that receives a relaxed Everton at the Emirates after sentencing their salvation in postponed matches last Thursday.
