WHO WILL WIN? Powered by BET9JA
The Premier League usually presents the trophy following the champions’ final home game, where possible, but that will not be the case this season.
Brighton will be the final team to visit the Etihad Stadium, after the original fixture was rearranged due to the Seagulls’ FA Cup involvement, but the decision has been made to stage the celebrations after the clash with Huddersfield instead.
Several factors have been taken into account, including the fact the game will be shown live on Sky Sports in the United Kingdom, allowing fans around the country to tune in.
City may have already been named champions but they can still set a number of records this season depending on their results in the next five games.
Should the Blues win three matches they will beat Chelsea’s total of 95 points, and if they win all five they will be the first team to top 100 points in a season.
