Manchester City will clinch the Premier League title at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday as they clinch the title for a third consecutive time this weekend.

Arsenal’s punishing 3–0 home defeat to Brighton all but ended their fight to win the league, leaving City four points ahead with a game in hand going into the final seven days of the season.

City’s coronation will be confirmed if they beat Chelsea at home on Sunday, but could come 24 hours earlier if the Gunners lose at relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest.

Mail Sport understands that the glittering silverware is ready in the North West for those eventualities, with a choreographed post-match lift.

Pep Guardiola’s side travel to Brighton next Wednesday, but would not accept the trophy at the Amex Stadium if that were the night that sealed victory.

A win at Brighton would see Captain Ilkay Gundogan – whose future hangs in the air – lead the final day festivities at Brentford instead.

Still aiming for a historic Treble, City face Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final on Wednesday evening.

“It’s about keeping the group calm and not getting too excited,” Gundogan said. “It’s a game every three or four days, so there’s not much time to recover, so we have to try to make the best of it.

“We know that in the final stages of the season we need every player. It doesn’t matter who plays, it’s about the group and the support for each other.

“As a team we have to focus as much as possible on what we need to do and get the job done and with that group we can be very successful. If we can keep our spirits up, it can be a great end to the season for us.’ City hope the league will wrap up next weekend, with another chance to enjoy the glory in front of their own supporters.

Last year’s dramatic final day, when Gundogan scored twice in what appeared to be a lost cause against Aston Villa, led to an emotional trophy presentation at the Etihad Stadium.

The moment in 2020-21 was shared with 10,000 supporters who were allowed to attend the final match against Everton after coronavirus restrictions were lifted, which also marked Sergio Agüero’s farewell.
