If Manchester City can get one more win, they will be crowned Premier League champions. It, however, so happens that City’s next opponent is city rival, Manchester United, who are visiting the Etihad stadium next weekend.
And City’s standout player of the campaign, Kevin de Bruyne would like nothing more to lift the title in front of their fiercest rival.
“To make it [win the title] against United would be special,” said De Bruyne.
“It would be so nice to go on and win against United, for the fans it would be something special. It would be wonderful, something different – you know how it goes between them, you know the history, so it would be historic.
“The sooner we do it, the better. Then we can focus on other games. It’s a tough run. We play Liverpool, United, Liverpool again and then Tottenham. It’s pretty impressive, eh?”
When the sides met in December, City ran out 2-1 winners at Old Trafford.
Saturday’s comfortable 3 – 1 win at Everton left City on the brink of lifting the trophy after a stellar campaign in Pep Guardiola’s second season at the helm.
