The stage is set. The trophy is polished. The ribbons are just waiting to be attached.
But can Manchester City finally seal the deal at home and win their first league title since 1968?
To the Citizens' relief, they hold their destiny in their own hands. Beat QPR, who are languishing in 17th place, and Vincent Kompany will be able to hoist the Premier League trophy over his head in one of the most incredible late-season comebacks in recent memory.
We should not forget, though, that the threat of relegation can do funny things to teams, and it would only take a draw for QPR to clinch their survival that City are so desperate to win. If Mark Hughes' side can snatch an early goal, "parking the bus" will not even come close to describing how ferociously the Hoops will defend.
It's almost unfair, given the depth that Roberto Mancini has at his disposal, that City have no injury problems—but champions are lucky that way. QPR will have to be without Samba Diakite, captain Shaun Derry and Akos Buzsaky.
It's squeaky bum time, Roberto, but can you push your side over the Fergie-sized mountain?
