  1. One game from the title

    Table

    And so, after 37 rounds of the Premier League season, we know where we stand in the title race.

    If Manchester City beat Brighton on Sunday they will retain the Premier League title.

    Slip up, in any way, and Liverpool can pip them with a win at home to Wolves.

    See you there?

  2. 'Kompany goal worthy of the title'

    Manchester City 1-0 Leicester

    Chris Sutton

    Ex-Chelsea striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    That was a goal worthy of winning a title - a stunning strike.

    I do feel for Liverpool, they have been unbelievable this season.

    Vincent Kompany
  3. Is Kompany going to have a crack?

    Manchester City 1-0 Leicester

    Vincent Kompany

    He is you know...

    Vincent Kompany

    Ooooohhhhh I say! Brilliant!

    Vincent Kompany

    That is schoolboy's own stuff!

  4. "Moments like this are part of this club"

    Manchester City 1-0 Leicester

    Manchester City

    Vincent Kompany

    Manchester City captain and match-winner Vincent Kompany to BBC Sport: "It's not about the amount of goals you score it's about when you score them. Today it was necessary. From the very start we had the right intensity to try and win this game. Kasper made some important saves and only I could beat him on a day like today! I'm just trying to contribute and today we went one step closer.

    "We were putting pressure on, upping the tempo but found the last pass difficult. They defended really well and it was going to take something special. I'm really happy for the team. This club, it's part of how we have been successful to have goals like this, moments like this. We always believe that we have a chance and can play for the last second.

    "Every step in the last four months was significant. Liverpool keep making the steps and now we have a final to play in Brighton, Nothing is won yet."

  5. "We weren't expecing that to go in..."

    Manchester City 1-0 Leicester

    Leicester City

    Vincent Kompany

    Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers: "I thought defensively and tactically, the team played a good game. They are difficult to contain with their quality and some world-class players, but particularly in the first half we played with great courage. In the second, we didn’t start how I would have liked, we went too long in our build up.

    "You still wouldn’t think Vincent Kompany was going to score from 30 yards into the top corner. We had seen many shots go over or wide, that was something we were not expecting.

    "It bodes really well for the future of this team, hopefully we can build on it.

    "Our motivation was to come in for our own development and performance, but we pushed City, arguably the best team in Europe right to the very end.

    "We will learn from this and look to end the season strongly.

    "City and Liverpool are marvellous teams. And whoever gets it deserves to be champions."

  6. 'We'll decide over a beer'

    Vincent Kompany

    Is Vincent Kompany going to carry on at Manchester City next season?

    Let's ask Pep.

    "We spoke with him and his agent. At the end of the season we are going to talk to him. He is an incredible human being and he helps me a lot. Always I was sad I could not use him a lot but this club is what it is because of people like Vincent. At the end of the season after the FA Cup we will see.

    "We will finish the season and after are going to talk. We spoke with him three weeks ago, one month ago. We spoke fluently. We are going to take a beer together and decide what is best especially for the club."

    Pep Guardiola

    More from Pep Guardiola: "One game left it will be so tough like today, we are away and we saw Brighton had a good game at Arsenal. But it is in our hands, don’t forget but we could have been 10 points behind if we lost to Liverpool here.

    "We were seven points behind, but we are in the last game and it is in our hands. We are going to prepare well.

    "We’ll see if Brighton defend deep or will be more offensive. It will be tough, but hopefully we will have the performance to be champions."

  11. 'Don't shoot' - Pep

    Man City 1-0 Leicester

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport at the Etihad Stadium

    Pep Guardiola has arrived for his post-match press conference.

    I asked him when he was thinking as Vincent Kompany lined up his fateful shot.

    "I thought 'don’t shoot'. He was smart. He didn’t follow my thoughts."

  13. "An incredible player"

    Manchester City 1-0 Leicester

    Manchester City

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola to BBC Sport: "An extraordinary goal, definitely. We played incredibly, I expected Leicester to be more offensive than in their last games, but they defend so deep. It was a more than decent first half but an outstanding second half knowing what we were playing for. I am sorry for many people, but still we are there.

    "Kompany has been here more than 10 years and he has helped with an incredible generation of players like Joe Hart and Pablo Zabaleta, create with other players like Hart and Zabaleta, they create this club. Vincent when he stepped forward in the big moments when he is fit is an incredible player."
