Premier League: All Eyes On Man City

All eyes are on Manchester as the final games of the Premier League season kick off to settle one of the closest title races ever.

Manchester City are in the driving seat to carry the trophy but one slip-up could see arch-rivals Manchester United carry the prize.

Just goal difference separates the two teams. City are at home to Queen's Park Rangers and a win will almost certainly mean their first league title in 44 years.

United, who have dominated English and European football for more than a decade, need to win or draw at Sunderland and City to lose or draw.

Football fans say it all adds up to a nerve-wracking finale to the richest league in the world.

Peter Spencer, sports editor of the Manchester Evening News, told the BBC the fight to the final whistle would be "tremendous".

He said: "It reminds me a little bit of last season when City won the FA Cup and United won the league on the same day, and this will be even crazier in the office.

"We've got 20 pages to fill of which 16 are geared towards City, so you can see they way we think it's going to go, but of course it can all change and there'll be 16 United and four City if it goes the other way."

Other crucial games will see Champions League places settled between Arsenal, Tottenham or even Newcastle.

At the bottom of the table, the relegation fight is between Bolton Wanderers and Queens Park Rangers, with Wanderers looking most at risk.
