Manchester City are on track to keep the title with another huge tally of 98 points, meaning Liverpool will have to settle for a runner-up spot with 97 points. Certainly their wage bill shows that their players earn on average £20,000 per week, no more than 20% of the Chelsea squad.

Brighton & Hove Albion may not have won any of their last nine matches in all competitions, but goalkeeper Mathew Ryan has hopes of denying Manchester City the English Premier League title on Sunday.

Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson told the paper: "Whichever team you support, there is no doubting the positive impact sporting success for each of our clubs has on the city, not just economically but also in terms of a feel-good factor".

European football's governing body has already been criticised for changing the qualifying criteria for the Champions League, with the top four sides from each of the continent's big four leagues - England, Spain, Italy and Germany - automatically qualifying for this season's group stage.

But if City do manage to drop points and on the other hand, if Liverpool manage to beat Wolves then it will be the Anfield outfit who will be handed the trophy - their first ever Premier League title. "I won't say Brighton are pushovers but I'm confident in my team, that's for sure".

But Ryan believes it won't be straightforward on Sunday, as he recalled the final day of the 2011/12 season.

The Reds could finish the season with a remarkable 97 points - the third highest in the league's history - and still fail to win the title. Only once have they been defeated by more than one goal, a 2-0 City win at The Etihad.

Leaked documents online have revealed the extent of what UEFA are trying to do within the Champions League setup to make it more of a closed shop.

They beat Manchester United at home, while also drawing home and away to Arsenal. Real Madrid 3-0 Valencia The first intra-national European Cup final in 45 years acted as the stage for Steve McManaman to write his name into Champions League folklore.

We know the occasion, but we have to focus on ourselves in the final game of the season in front of our home fans. They have basically qualified for a top 4 and will take it easy here. "We want to win these last two games to celebrate some titles with them".

Everton led their local rivals by 12 points after victory at Anfield in late February, but Liverpool went on a storming run to win 11 and draw one of their last 12 games to claim the title by two points.
