Sunday is going to be one of those days that will live in history. Either Manchester City will win their first top flight trophy in 44 years, or Manchester United will stage a surprise 20th league title. And those are just two of the ten live matches that soccer fans in the United States will be able to watch across television and the Internet.
With Manchester City and Manchester United tied on the same number of points, but with City having a +8 goal difference, all Manchester City has to do today is win to lift the title unless Manchester United — against all odds — can win and overcome the gulf in goal difference. Needless to say, this is one of the closest finishes to the English Premier League season in recent memory.
