Manchester City coach, Pep Guardiola has said he is ready for a battle as he hopes to seal the EPL title against Brighton tomorrow.
City will end just two points below their outstanding 100 points last season if they win their final game.
However, they will need all three points to guarantee the title as any slip up can hand their rivals the trophy.
Pep is not thinking about relaxing though as he revealed that he plans to prepare his players immensely for the title decider.
His words, “We must play well and be strong mentally, knowing it will be tough – it’s how we react even if we have bad moments,”
“We have to focus on the game – how we want to play – and not worry too much [about the rest].”
“If the game is running into problems, be calm and think about what you have to do. You may have to go crazy in the last five, 10, 15 minutes but before that we have a plan and must follow the plan to win the game – that’s what we have done all season.
“Experience [of winning the title] is important but it’s only one [factor]. The most incredible moment in the history of this club was when Sergio scored that goal and, of course, they [Aguero, Vincent Kompany, David Silva] are important players but everyone has to contribute in the last game.”
“We’ve talk about the two options – if they play like they did recently so defensively, using set pieces, using long balls, using the counter-attack with [Anthony] Knockaert and [Solly] March, the build up with the two central defenders who are so good,”Guardiola added.
“But maybe at home in the last game they decide to go more forward but we have talked about what we can expect and how we handle both situations.”
