Manchester City are the Premier League Champions for the 2018/19 season. They have landed back to back titles after a thrilling race with Liverpool, that saw them finally clinch things on the final day of the season. Liverpool won, pushing City all the way and forcing them to win too, and there is no doubt that Liverpool have forced the champions to earn it this season, very different to last. 

There was a glimmer of hope for those at Anfield on Sunday, when they scored to go ahead against Wolves while Brighton went 1-0 up against Manchester City. However, that was very short lived, with City replying straight away, and then quickly adding another goal to go ahead and tighten their grip on the trophy. In the end they ran out comfortable winners, and straight after the final whistle, the party began. 

To round off their season in style, Manchester City will head to Wembley on Saturday for the FA Cup. They face Watford in that one, and a win would bring up a domestic treble for City as they already have the League Cup and now the league in hand. Three trophies would be another successful season for Pep Guardiola, and it would also send the fans off into the summer very happy. 

As you would expect, City are strong favourites to win the FA Cup on Saturday evening. They are priced up at 2/9 to win the game in 90 minutes, with their opponents available at 11/1. A draw and subsequent extra time can be backed at 11/2 on the day, but City will be hoping they can wrap things up long before that is due.
