Manchester City will reclaim the Premier League title today if they beat upcoming Champions League final opponents Chelsea.
Pep Guardiola’s side lost their Premier League crown to Liverpool last season but will win their third title in four seasons, and seventh in their history, with a win at the Etihad Stadium.
Chelsea booked their place in the Champions League final by beating Real Madrid on Wednesday, setting up a meeting with City, who swept aside Paris Saint-Germain the previous evening.
Tonight’s match will therefore serve as a dress rehearsal for the showpiece final in three weeks’ time, but there is plenty at stake as Chelsea also look to secure their top four spot.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match this evening.
When is it on?
The match kicks off at 5:30pm GMT on Saturday 8 May.

While this will undoubtedly be presented as a Champions League final dress rehearsal, it’s unlikely to play out that way as both sides are expected to make changes. City also have the greater incentive to win and Pep Guardiola’s will be motivated to wrap up the title in style. Manchester City 2-0 Chelsea
