The moment of truth is here for Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City side, who travel to Brighton on Sunday knowing victory will secure them consecutive Premier League titles.
Vincent Kompany's stunning strike against Leicester on Monday night means they remain one point above Liverpool, who face Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield looking to pounce on any slip up by the champions at the Amex Stadium.
For the home side it will be a day of celebration, with Cardiff City's defeat against Crystal Palace last weekend confirming that Chris Hughton's team will be in the top flight again next season.
All eyes will be on Guardiola and his host of superstars however, as they seek to become the first side to retain the Premier League since cross-city rivals Manchester United

Head to Head Record
The two clubs have faced each other 21 times in their history, with City
Brighton have been in a poor run of form and are without a victory in the league since they beat Palace
They have picked up a point in each of their last two outings but have only scored twice in their last eight Premier League
Guardiola's side are in scintillating form, winning 13 league games on the bounce since defeat at Newcastle United
Despite being known for attacking football, City have conceded just once in their last seven fixtures in the competition and, if they can keep another clean sheet on Sunday, with the attacking talent at their disposal they will be heavy favourites to get the three points they need to lift the trophy.
Here's how each side has fared in their last five games:
|Arsenal 1-1 Brighton (5/5)||Manchester City 1-0 Leicester (6/5)|
|Brighton 1-1 Newcastle (27/4)||Burnley 0-1 Manchester City (28/4)|
|Tottenham 1-0 Brighton (23/4)||Manchester United 0-2 Manchester City (24/4)|
|Wolves 0-0 Brighton (20/4)||Manchester City 1-0 Tottenham (20/4)|
|Brighton 0-2 Cardiff (16/4)||Crystal Palace 1-3 Manchester City (14/4)|
City have been relentless in their pursuit of consecutive titles and, although Brighton are sure to try and make things as awkward as possible, they could not have picked a much better team to play against on the final day.
City have had to work incredibly hard to stay above an excellent Liverpool
It's time to put the champagne on ice.
Prediction: Brighton 0-2 Manchester City
