The day has arrived for Manchester City to seize the day and create history

After 37 games, many twists and turns and a tough and tense title race the day has arrived for Manchester City to seize the moment and create history. After last season’s monumental treble success, Pep Guardiola’s side has fought tooth and nail to get to the final day of the season with their destiny in their own hands. If they beat West Ham today at the Etihad Stadium, they will claim a fourth consecutive Premier League title. The day has arrived for Manchester City to seize their moment and become immortals.

Despite being within touching distance of history, Pep Guardiola and his team know they have one more job to do. While the consensus has been that Tuesday night’s win over Tottenham sealed the Premier League title. It isn’t the case. West Ham is the final hurdle for the world champions to clear. The Hammers will be keen to send outgoing manager David Moyes off in style. While Manchester City are favourites no result is a formality.

Pep Guardiola’s squad must be at their best to create history today. There will be nerves amongst the Manchester City players ahead of today’s game. It is part and parcel of any big game. But backed by their home support, the City squad will be hoping the Etihad crowd can help them create history. Speaking with before the game, Kevin De Bruyne believes the home support could be the difference in today’s game. De Bruyne said: “It’s David Moyes’ last game for them, and they’ll also want to finish the season on a high, so we know it’s not going to be easy. But we are at our home with our fans, and they’re going to be right behind us like they always are to create that special atmosphere to push us and help us get over the line.

Time and time again this season Manchester City has risen to the occasion to keep within touching distance of a fourth consecutive Premier League title. Following their nil-all draw against Arsenal at the beginning of April, it appeared that Pep Guardiola’s side would need to win 9 consecutive Premier League games to win the title. They have ticked off 8 of those wins and have one win to go. The prize is within sight, and it is up to the City squad to rise to the occasion.

The day has arrived for Manchester City to seize the day and create history. It has taken 10 months and 37 games to get to this point. One more win, and West Ham stands in City’s way. If they can be at their best and not play the consequences of today’s result, Manchester City will take their place as arguably the greatest side in Premier League history.
