Having won the league, picked up the trophy and broken both the record amount of points and goals in a Premier League season, Manchester City go into Sunday’s game certainly not short of confidence.

On the other hand, Southampton come into the final game of the 2017/18 with a different type of elation. Having recorded a hugely important win away at Swansea during the week, the Saints require only a point to ensure their Premier League survival.

Despite being without leading striker, Sergio Agüero, Pep Guardiola will be confident that City can end the season in the same form that they’ve carried for the prior 37 games.
