Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola claims he is not tensed ahead of today’s final-game title decider at Brighton.
City will win the Premier League if they defeat their host at the Amex Stadium no matter the outcome between Liverpool and Wolves at Anfield.
“I am so happy – no nerves at all. I was nervous before Liverpool, seven points behind, and we could have been 10 points behind.
“It was, ‘Ah, it will be so difficult’. But not now, no way. I sleep like a little boy. It is a dream, a privilege, I love it.”
Should they lose to Brighton and Liverpool who trail by a point wins they clinch the title.
City have won their last 13 games in what has been a remarkable title race in which they and Liverpool have matched each other almost blow for blow.
Guardiola’s men have needed to show all their champion qualities in their last four games – tight victories over Tottenham, Manchester United, Burnley and Leicester.
Dropping points in any of them would have seen the initiative switch to Liverpool, who have won eight in succession and are just a point behind heading into the final round of fixtures.
With such momentum behind them, Guardiola feels his team-talk should take care of itself.
He said: “I would say that I don’t have to say anything to motivate (the players). I think my speech will be zero.
“They want to win the Premier League. What I saw in the training sessions – they want to win it. We are going to go out there at Brighton at 3 o’clock to win the game.
“We have not spoken for two or three days about the Premier League (title) or back-to-back, or what happens if we lose, about celebrations if we win, zero.
“It is just about Brighton, how they defend, their strengths and weak points, what we have to do.
