After a long and frustrating 2015-16 Premier League campaign, we've finally arrived at the final match of the season. City take the pitch at the Liberty Stadium today knowing that a draw will get them to the Champions League qualifying stage for next season, with United still 2 points and several goals behind. It's also Manuel Pellegrini's final match in charge as well as likely several players who have been part of the core of this club for quite some time.
As we sign off for the season and put the disappointment into a box tucked away in the basement for a few months, let's also take a moment to remember the good memories that old core of players has brought us over the years. Yes, they're past their prime now, but it's been a damn good ride if you ask me. Hopefully, Pellegrini gets the send off he deserves as well, and not the absolutely pathetic 1/4 filled Etihad from last weekend's farewell speech after the Arsenal match. As mixed as the opinions on him are, he's filled the manager's role with nothing but class and integrity over his three years, and you really cannot find that at any of the other top English clubs during that time. Onwards and upwards next year, but let's close this one out right.

City remain unchanged from the side that faced Arsenal last week, the only exception at all being the return of Samir Nasri to the bench. 4-4-2 one last time from Pellegrini and Kelechi gets another start.
