Victories over Aston Villa on Wednesday and West Ham United on Sunday, both at the Etihad Stadium, will see Manuel Pellegrini's side win the Premier League title.

At the moment, the Citizens have 80 points from 36 matches, a point behind leaders Liverpool, who have played a game more.

A win against the Villans at home on Wednesday will see the 2012 champions go top of the table and head into the final day of the campaign in pole position.

Just like in the 2011/12 season, this term the title race will go down to the wire, and Dzeko is relishing the challenge.

"We'll try to give everything and I think we've done an amazing job," the 28-year-old Bosnia striker told The Sun.

"After winning at Goodison on Saturday (3-2 against Everton), we go into the last two home games against Vila and West Ham, not at 100 per cent, at 200 per cent.

"Everything is on our hands, like two years ago. I remember when we won the league against QPR, everyone expected us to win easily. It took us until the last minute.

"I think we learned something from that. We know not to underestimate teams and try to do our best."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
