Premier League predictions: Manchester City seal title with win over Chelsea in Champions League final dress rehearsal

We pick out the winners and losers from the latest round of English top-flight fixture

From sealing a place in the European Cup final to securing another Premier League title, what an unforgettable few days this could be in the history of Manchester City Football Club.

Pep Guardiola's side completed an impressive 4-1 aggregate victory over Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday when they defeated Neymar and Co 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

They return to their home ground on Saturday knowing that a win over Chelsea will mean a fifth domestic title in 10 seasons for the blue half of Manchester. The game takes on additional meaning now after Chelsea also booked their place in the Champions League final, ensuring the clash at the Etihad will act as a high-profile dress rehearsal for Istanbul.

Kicking-off the weekend's action on Friday, though, will be third-placed Leicester City's home game against Newcastle United.

Also playing 24 hours later on City's potential coronation day are Leeds and Spurs at Elland Road, Sheffield United versus Crystal Palace in Yorkshire and Liverpool's home clash with Southampton.

Sunday sees Wolves against Brighton at Molineux, Aston Villa entertaining Manchester United, West Ham taking on Everton in London and Arsenal versus West Brom at the Emirates Stadium.

Fulham and Burnley at Craven Cottage on Monday ends the latest round of matches.
