Liverpool and Manchester City hungry for silverware

Liverpool and Manchester City hungry for silverware

The organisation are pulling towards a bigger format which would see entrants play 14 games instead of the current 6 in the group stages.

After a titanic title race featuring two absolute juggernauts, one of Manchester City or Liverpool will finally be crowned Premier League champions this weekend.

Mills highlighted how a 35-year-old could be the most important player on what promises to be a thrilling end to what has been a remarkable tussle between City and Liverpool.

And when City memorably won their first title in 44 years under Roberto Mancini back in 2012 they had to wait until the last second before sealing the crown.

The two teams have traded places leading the league 26 times this season.

Statistically this is the greatest Premier League title race of all-time, but AFP Sports looks at what rivals it for drama from the history books.

Blackburn and Manchester United were locked in an epic battle with Kenny Dalglish's Rovers side pursuing the club's first top-flight title in 81 years.

But an eagle-eyed WWE fan may have caught HHH red-handed after looking at his "likes" section on his official Twitter page. But he was hell-bent on fulfilling some "unfinished business" on the flagship show and confirmed his appearance.

Chelsea went into the final day just one point ahead of United and needed to beat Wigan at home to make sure of the title. Is he disillusioned and deciding if he wants to stay at Man United?

Arsenal would have to win 8-0 and hope that Tottenham lose to Everton in order to finish in the top 4. Ajax play Tottenham later on Wednesday for a place in the Champions League final against Liverpool on June 1 in Madrid, after Jurgen Klopp's side's remarkable comeback against Barcelona.

Should City seal the title on Sunday it will be the club´s fourth in eight years, a run that was started by Sergio Aguero´s dramatic victor as they came from 2-1 down in injury time to beat Queens Park Rangers 3-2 on the day and Manchester United to the title on goal difference.

In recent seasons, the group stage has featured eight pools of four teams. At the start of the season they were wiping the floor with teams, now they're not but they're keeping clean sheets, being hard to beat and nicking goals. They got maximum points since their last defeat (to Newcastle United in January) so you really can't ask for more.

That it took a spot-kick to get them on the scoresheet speaks volumes about the lack of firepower in Hughton's attack, who have drawn a blank in seven of their last nine games.

Southampton have blown hot and cold in the past few weeks but this game being their final one and at home they should have the quality to be too pacey for Huddersfield and win this game.
