City have been guaranteed a top six finish after Liverpool’s 2-0 defeat at home to Chelsea.
The result means City can finish no lower than sixth place in the Premiership, which was the target set by the blues last summer when Mark Hughes was in charge.
But City can exceed expectations by beating Spurs on Wednesday and will qualify for the Champions League should they also win at West Ham in next weekend’s final game.
It is a huge jump for the blues, who have been transformed from an underperforming mid table side to top four challengers. And it was only a few short years ago that the blues were relegation candidates.
Four years ago, City finished 15th in the league, while the following season the blues finished in 14th but only 4 points above the relegation zone. But now with another European adventure on the horizon and a possible fourth place finish, the blues should now be able to look ahead and achieve something the loyal yet long suffering fans have been waiting for.
Meanwhile Chelsea’s win at Anfield means the title looks like heading to Stamford Bridge. The West London side a one point ahead of United, who won 1-0 win at Sunderland. In the final games, United host Stoke while Wigan travel south to The Bridge. They might as well take the Premier League trophy with them.
