MANCHESTER CITY can claim their third successive title with a win over a struggling Chelsea side, regardless of Arsenal’s result.
Pep Guardiola’s side were helped by Arsenal’s 3-0 collapse at home to Brighton last weekend with the Gunners four points behind having played a game more.
City’s goal machine Erling Haaland has bagged 36 goals in 33 games so far this season, breaking the Premier League record with a chance at a 40-goal season.
The Norwegian has scored as many goals as Chelsea this campaign, showing the West Londoner’s glaring need for a goal scorer.
The Blues will be hoping for the season to end sooner rather than later with a bottom-half finish confirmed for the West London giants.
With Mauricio Pochettino reportedly set to become Chelsea manager next season, current manager Frank Lampard will hope to give fans a glimmer of hope for the future despite only playing top-half teams for the remainder of the season.
