Man City boss Pep Guardiola fears Liverpool title threat next season

"But I think the idea is quite similar - we both want to try to win the game for ourselves and they don't wait for what will happen".

Liverpool, meanwhile, have still not secured a place in the Champions League next season - despite reaching this year's final.

When the most recent top-flight TV deal came into force, there was a major concern that it would only serve to widen the gulf between the Premier League and those in the divisions below. Guardiola's revolution has been a joy to watch as a neutral and there is no doubt that they will be in top gear in order to achieve that record points tally. The Red Devils have had more games shown on TV this term - 28 times, which is same as Arsenal - compared to City's 25, by broadcasters Sky Sports and BT Sport.

Pep Guardiola has vowed to give Phil Foden or Brahim Diaz his Premier League winner's medal if they end up without one.

There are no fresh injury concerns for Guardiola to contend with heading into the game, with the only major absentee being star striker Sergio Aguero, who has missed close to a month of action with a knee injury. With Saints' full-backs Cedric Soares and Ryan Bertrand often keen to push on, the former Schalke player can exploit space in behind them.

"I think the only difference is that we've embarked on a season where Man City have been that good".

Southampton all-but ensured their Premier League survival with Tuesday's nervy 1-0 win at relegation rivals Swansea.

Not just class but class apart.

Palace also face the return of the on-loan Ruben Loftus-Cheek to parent club Chelsea and the threat of increasing interest in Wilfried Zaha, potentially giving the 32-year-old Cabaye greater importance at a time when Hodgson knows he will receive offers from elsewhere.

Southampton are on the verge of Premier League safety and need a point from the game to be absolutely sure of their situation.

A draw is available at 41/10 odds at Unibet, and a Southampton win at 8/1 odds at Bet365.
