The English Premier League will be hitting a crescendo this afternoon after weeks of hostilities between the 20 teams in the top flight.

No doubt the attention is on who will emerge the champion for the 2018/19 season. Other things look sorted including the composition of the top four teams and relegated teams.

City go into the game at Brighton knowing a win would see them become the first team in a decade to win the trophy back-to-back. But any slip-up is likely to be pounced upon by second-placed Liverpool, currently just a point behind. Liverpool host Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Indeed the season has been a phenomenal one with many records set and others broken.

Together, City and Liverpool have amassed 60 wins from 74 games including 40 clean sheets.
