Afternoon…

13:50: Hello everyone and welcome to our LIVE coverage of the Premier League.

How’s the heart rate?

After the most intense title battle for many a year, it comes down to the final weekend. I feel nervous just writing this…

Just one point separates reigning champions Manchester City and second-placed Liverpool heading into what is sure to be a thrilling final set of fixtures if the footballing week is anything to go by.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds secured a jaw-dropping 4-0 win against Barcelona on Tuesday night to reach the Champions League final and Anfield is sure to be abuzz again when Wolves arrive.

The Reds need to win and hope that Brighton can end a tough season on a high against Pep Guardiola’s men. Few expect City to come a cropper on the south coast but stranger things have happened… in the last couple of days alone.

Ready for those line-ups? Standby…

BRIGHTON vs MANCHESTER CITY

Colombia forward Jose Izquierdo will miss Sunday’s season-ending clash with Man City due to a knee complaint. Midfielder Davy Propper also misses out as he is still sidelined with a hamstring problem.

Kevin De Bruyne could return as City look to clinch the Premier League title. The Belgium playmaker (hamstring) has missed the last three games but has been involved in training this week. Midfielder Fernandinho (knee) is still out and is also doubtful for the FA Cup final next week.
