City take on Huddersfield Town on Sunday, and with the title already wrapped up, they will be eager to secure at least two new Premier League records in the amazong season. So what can we expect?
Yaya’s Farewell Begins
Manager Pep Guardiola announced on Friday that Yaya Toure will leave the blues at the end of the season. Given his limited appearances this season, it was always a given that this campaign would be his last. Toure signed a new one year contract last season, but the success of City’s midfield has relegated the big man to bit parts.
Blues fans will get an opportunity to say goodbye on Sunday, with a final farewell on Wednesday against Brighton.
Two more goals will see City break the Premier League goal scoring record, which currently stands at 103. Chances are that record will go tomorrow. Three points will also see City break the all-time points tally for one season. Again, I can see that being achieved tomorrow. But another record has popped into view. With United’s defeat at Brighton on Friday, City can go 19 points clear, and winning the last two games of the season will see the largest winning margin record broken too.
The Premier League Trophy
In fairness, it has only been a matter of time the blues lifted this trophy, with many saying since Christmas that City were going to win it, and United’s defeat at home to West Brom confirmed the title for the blues. City have had two games since then, winning both, but now the trophy will be presented to the blues for the third time.
City legend Vincent Kompany will once again lift the trophy and there can be no nicer person in football to do it. Captain, leader, legend.
Huddersfield have already pushed us hard this season, but I anticipate a win to set the scene before the trophy presentation. I don’t think it will be on the 1987 10-1 scale, but if we get the first goal early enough, it will get the blues hungry for more, so I’m going for decent wining margin, breaking the two records in the process,
City 4-0 Huddersfield.
