Manchester City and Liverpool players dominate shortlist

Manchester City and Liverpool players dominate shortlist

The victory moved the Citizens back above title-rivals Liverpool by a point heading into the last game of the season.

Two such historic campaigns at the same time is extraordinary, but the nature of the duel has also been remarkable.

"At the end of the season we are going to talk to him", said Guardiola on whether Kompany will be handed a new deal. The last team to pull off such a feat was Arsenal in 1988-89, when they famously beat leaders Liverpool at Anfield 2-0, to win the title on goals scored.

Having secured 100 points in the Premier League a year ago, they now look on course to finish with season with 98 points with 90 minutes separating them from retaining their league title.

Nor is there the slightest indication in the way Liverpool and City are ending the season - they have won their combined last 16 games - that Pep Guardiola or Juergen Klopp's side are likely to drop their standards.

The 1963-64 Serie A title race was so tight, the Scudetto had to be decided via a play-off for the first and only time in history, after Bologna and Inter finished with 54 points. If City at least match Liverpool's result, they will be crowned Champions, but one slip-up would open the door for the Reds to steal the trophy.

However, things are not easy for Manchester City as they seem, because the final matchday of the Premier league always offer surprises. He helped me a lot since I've been here.

Liverpool entertain Wolves on Sunday and know anything but three points at Anfield will mean City once again claim the Premier League title.

"Don´t shoot! Pass the ball, pass the ball!", said Guardiola when asked about his thoughts as Kompany took aim. "I'm happy for him, for the club, for everybody".

But the club captain, whose contract is up in the summer, then shed a few tears as he set out on the end-of-season lap of honour ahead of his team-mates.

And if we take a look at the semifinals, not only will we see some incredible drama that could not be scripted, but we will see two teams playing against one another, after overachieving massively to reach the round of final four.

But if City do drop points and Liverpool beat Wolves - which is also live on Sky Sports and kicking off at 3pm - the Merseyside club will deliver their first league title since 1990.

"But it is in our hands, don't forget but we could have been 10 points behind if we lost to Liverpool here [on January 3]".
