How can Manchester City win the title against Manchester United on Saturday?

SO this is it… the weekend when runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City can actually clinch the title.

It seems like Pep Guardiola’s rampant side have been in full control of their own destiny for months now.

Such has been their control of the championship race it’s long been inevitable that City will clinch their third Premier crown in six years.

It will be their first triumph under Guardiola, who will add the honour to his table-topping achievements in La Liga with Barcelona and the Budesliga with Bayern Munich.

So tell me what can happen this weekend

Victory over neighbours United at the Etihad would mean City are definitely champions.

It would mean the Citizens would be on 87 points and United could only reach 86.

City would also surpass the maximum points totals possible for both Liverpool (84) and Spurs (85).

But if they draw or lose, the issue starts to get complicated.

What do you mean? What happens if City and United draw?

A point apiece would see City on 85 points and United on 69. That would be enough to put Liverpool out of it and also mean that a City win at Spurs the following week would clinch the championship.

Anything less than a win at Spurs, coupled with a United victory over West Bromwich the following day, would mean the Blues still need either two or three points to secure the title.

And what about if United win on Saturday?

This would mean City could not clinch the title at Wembley the following week because would still need six points to surpass United’s maximum possible points total of 89.

But if City beat Spurs and the United somehow slip up and draw with West Bromwich 24 hours later and draw, City would still need a point to mathematically claim the crown.

If United lose to the bottom club, City would win the title without playing again.

If City do bag the trophy with a win over United, how significant will their achievement be?

City will become the first side in Premier League history to clinch the title with five games to spare.

United, twice in 1999/00 and 2012/13, and Arsenal in 2003/04 completed title victories with four games to go.
