When can Man City be crowned Premier League champions?

Manchester City are strolling to the Premier League title under Pep Guardiola, 16 points clear of nearest challengers Manchester United. It seems a matter of time until their city rivals are crowned champions.

How many points do City need?

They need nine points, or three wins. However, as one of their next two fixtures is against United, they will actually be champions if they win those two games.

When can City guarantee being champions?

They could win the title at home to United on Saturday. April 7. Their next two games are against Everton and then United. Two wins would see City with a minimum lead of 19 points over United with only 18 left to play for, and that's if United beat Swansea on March 31 to keep the pressure on.

When is the earliest they can win the title?

With United beating Liverpool, City cannot not be champions until the derby on April 7.

They could actually be crowned champions with a draw against United, should the Red Devils lose at home to Swansea (and City beat Everton) and Tottenham drop points against Chelsea.

Would United have to give City a guard of honour?

As City can no longer win the title before April 7, this isn't possible. The first team to play them after winning the title would do it.

What if United beat City?

If both teams keep winning, and United win at the Etihad, City would then likely have to wait until at least April 22, when they entertain Swansea, to seal the title. They might have to wait another week if they were to lose at Spurs on April 14.

What about Tottenham?

Four points worse off than Manchester United, Spurs would need a miracle to win the title from here. They can finish with a maximum of 85 points, with Man City already on 81.

Arsenal and Chelsea?

They are both now mathematically out of the title race.
