Manchester City players celebrated winning the Premier League title with their WAGs by renting out an entire restaurant in Manchester on Thursday night.

City have broken many league-records this season, and they will have their eyes set on this one too.

FC's Steve Nicol and Shaka Hislop go toe-to-toe in predicting the final slate of Premier League fixtures. Everyone was sad, but it now has changed because we have a game.

"In these last weeks, these numbers have helped us be focused, to play for something", said Guardiola, who side's title success was confirmed nearly a month before the end of the season.

After a crucial win against Swansea earlier this week, Southampton are virtually safe from relegation and only a ten-goal swing between them and Swansea - who host already relegated Stoke - will be able to send them down.

"They have worked from day one to the last one, training with us, being in the locker room, working".

Japanese defender Maya Yoshida is likely to return from suspension, with young Polish player Jan Bednarek injured.

The five at the back system has been efficient recently and has seen only two goals conceded in the last four games and so it will be interesting to see how the system fares against the all time record goal-scorers in a single Premier League season.

There are no fresh injury concerns for Guardiola to contend with heading into the game, with the only major absentee being star striker Sergio Aguero, who has missed close to a month of action with a knee injury. The German speedster is a real threat on the counter-attack away from home, and his last four goals in all competitions have been away from the Etihad. We are backing Pep Guardiola's side to pick up another three points on Sunday. We, at the Hard Tackle, expect an easy 4-1 win for the Sky Blues, but Southampton, despite the defeat, should stay up in the English top-flight. Numerous games are available on fuboTV (Try for free). We'll come back July 9.
