We are less than 24 hours away from determining the Premier League champions. Reigning champions Manchester City are in pole position to lift the title with a win in their last game enough to secure the title. Meanwhile, rivals Arsenal are still in contention for the title and will hope that City win their game against West Ham while the Gunners secure a win over Everton to break City’s vice grip on the silverware. Former Manchester United star Rio Ferdinand was full of praise for Manchester City ahead of the final day. However, despite his praise, the Englishman still wants Arsenal to lift the title!

The Manchester United legend was present on TalkSPORT where he touched down on the tussle between Manchester City and Arsenal during the final day. Ferdinand stated, “I’m actually going to the Emirates on Sunday, so I’ll be there to dry the tears. I can’t see City fluffing it from here, not really with the experience they have got. I think it would be a miracle to fall away for City. I’d be delighted if Arsenal won it. I don’t want City to dominate like they have been and break the record for four in a row.”

Well, it makes sense for Ferdinand to be an Arsenal supporter for the night considering Manchester United holds the record for three consecutive title wins. If City win the title tomorrow night, they will become the only team in English history to win the title for four consecutive seasons.

While Manchester City are on the cusp of making history, their manager wants to leave nothing unchecked. The Spaniard had a message for his team during his latest press conference, where he stated while the team is in pole position to win the title, their job is not done yet, and the team needs to give their 100% to get past West Ham tomorrow night. While Guardiola and his men are surely the favorites heading into the fixture, soccer has seen bigger dogs fall when it isn’t their night!

Manchester City is no stranger to pressure situations on the final day. The 2022 edition of the Premier League saw the Sky Blues come back 2-0 from behind against Aston Villa to secure the league title, ripping it away from Liverpool’s grasp. While City would love to stay in the lead tomorrow night, it would be a mistake to count them out even if they concede the opening goal.
