Lack of urgency may mean a lack of goals at the Etihad

Champs City were sluggish on Sunday and Brighton are safe

Manchester City get hold of the Premier League trophy after Sunday's game against Huddersfield
1 of 1

Premier League
8pm Wednesday

The equation is simple enough for Manchester City – win their last two games to reach 100 points.

However, they barely looked bothered on Sunday against a Huddersfield side who were fighting for their lives so the question is whether they will they show more urgency against an Albion team who aren’t fighting for anything.

Guardiola has already allowed his emotions to dictate that Yaya Toure gets a start.

Brighton have been terrible away and it’ll be interesting to see if they’re any more focused having secured their top-flight status. 

Recommendation
Under 3.5 goals
