After a grueling season in which Liverpool pushed them all the way, Manchester City can finally get their hands on the Premier League trophy this weekend. Well, provided Aston Villa doesn’t cause a monumental upheaval.

City lead Liverpool by one point, so a win here will guarantee they claim the title for the fourth time in five seasons. But anything less than that and you can bet there will be anxious eyes on the Liverpool vs Wolves match in the hope that the Reds are wrong as well.

Villa have already played their part in an important game this week, holding Burnley to a 1-1 draw that took the Clarets out of the bottom three. But they didn’t turn around and let Burnley take the three points, and they won’t capitulate here either – not least because manager Steven Gerrard is an Anfield legend!

Here’s how they line up:

Manchester City: Ederson, Cancelo, Stones, Laporte, Fernandinho, Rodri, De Bruyne, Silva, Mahrez, Jesus, Foden.

AstonVilla: Olsen, Cash, Chambers, Mings, Worthy, Ramsey, Luiz, McGinn, Buendia, Watkins, Coutinho.

Can Man City win the Premier League or will they give Liverpool a chance to propel them to the title? Find out by watching Manchester City v Aston Villa live stream.
