Press Notes:

“It’s a pleasure to be in this position. You don’t often have chance to win back to back titles, after the game like I said it remains six games, we’ve already qualified for the Champions League which is a big success and now we have the target of the Premier League.”

“Roy Hodgson is an incredibly experienced manager, when at Palace we always struggled to break them down and do good games.”

“We try to avoid extra energy and keep it for the right time. We finished the game [Brighton] at 10pm and we play at 3pm tomorrow. I

“In that time it’s just [about] refreshing the head.”

It will be a grinder of a match, but City need this win and need to take this one seriously. We’ll see how the team responds.
