John Stones believes the older heads in the Manchester City dressing room could be the difference as they aim to wrap up the Premier League title. City will retain the Premier League crown if they win their final two games against Leicester at home and Brighton away, but with Liverpool just a point behind there is little room for error.
It is a far cry from last season when City won the title with five games to spare and went on to finish a record 19 points clear of their nearest rival. Defender Stones said: “It’s a different scenario, last season the league was done by now.

“We’ve got to be guided by those and try to take everything in. It makes everything exciting, keeps everyone on our toes. “If you ask me if I’d prefer to win it like last season, I’d say yes, but the situation we are in we’re really enjoying, trying to go with the flow, take everything in and keep putting the performances in.
“I wouldn’t say it’s keeping us motivated – because everyone is motivated to win and lift the Premier League – but it’s making us hungrier to keep winning, keep the pressure on and keep fighting until we can’t any more. It’s exciting to be part of it.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
