Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says that he expects his team to win the Premier League title on Sunday.

The Sky Blues moved two points ahead of Liverpool with just a game to go after a 4-0 demolition of Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium to put themselves firmly in the driving seat.

City know that a win at home to West Ham will guarantee them a second title in three years, and that a draw will be enough unless Liverpool overturn a 13 goal difference between the sides with a massive win against Newcastle.

Pellegrini has remained cagey up until now about his side’s prospects, but after the game he revealed that he’s now confident of lifting the trophy this weekend:

“Of course I expect to win the title because now we are top of the table,” he is quoted by ESPN.

“Now we can talk about the title because if we win the next game we are going to win the title. We could not do the same before this game because we had to beat Aston Villa.”

Pellegrini also talked up the way in which his team have put themselves in pole position after they broke the 100-goal mark thanks to a late Yaya Toure effort.

“I think it will be very important, not only [to win] the title but in the way we are going to win the title if finally we win it. I think we have a style of play, I think we are an attractive team, I think we score many goals and we are always thinking to score more goals. That to me has the same importance as winning the title.

“I am very happy to win the title this way. There are different ways to win titles. I choose this one with attractive football so that the fans enjoy the season. For me, the aesthetic part is very important.”
