Pep: I have no nerves at all

Pep Guardiola says he will not need to motivate his Manchester City players when they take on Brighton in their final Premier League game of the campaign.

City will win the Premier League title for the second season in a row if they beat the Seagulls on Sunday.

They head into the final round of fixtures one point clear of second-placed Liverpool, who take on Wolves at Anfield in their final game.

Jurgen Klopp's team have only lost one top-flight match this season – at Manchester City – and reached the Champions League final on Tuesday by recording an amazing semi-final triumph against Bareclona.

Liverpool were seven points ahead of City in January but Guardiola's team have won 13 top-flight matches in a row, the latest coming on Monday when they edged to a 1-0 victory against Leicester.

Guardiola said: "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.

"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 three o'clock to win the game.

"It is just about Brighton, how they defend, their strengths and weak points, what we have to do and on Sunday, 'Guys, go out and play'. That is all."

Manchester City are 1/6 to beat Brighton on Sunday and 5/1 to win the match from behind.
