Final City change is a straight swap at left back. Mendy off for Zinchenko.

Gabriel Jesus drives in from the left and shoots wide. Poor effort.

GOOOOOOAAAALLLL! Ziyech finally finds his range. Chelsea have their reward. 1-1.

61' 

Pulisic makes space for himself on the edge of the box and promptly skies over. Poor.

60' 

Chelsea are also enjoying more possesion higher up the pitch. An hour gone and it is finely poised.

58' 

James is getting much more joy out of Mendy than he was first half.

56' 

Ziyech penalised. Free kick City.

52' 

James gets past Mendy and feeds Ziyech. His shot is straight at Ederson again.

51' 

Werner is found by Rudiger's long ball, winning a race with Laporte. But the City defender watches him and calmly takes the ball off him.

This is going to be tough for Chelsea from here. The dynamic of the game has changed. But they were given a reprieve by Aguero's penalty.

City kick us off.

45' 

Apologies. Had some technical issues at the WRONG TIME! Jesus stole in and beat Christensen to the ball for the first, squaring to Aguero. Sterling took it on to score. Half time, 1-0. City 45 minutes from the title.

45' + 2 

MISSED! Aguero tries a panenka, which Mendy reads. Still 1-0.

45' + 1 

Its a penalty to City. Jesus is fouled by Gilmour.

SHOT! Ziyech stings the palms of Ederson, who has it covered. Rudiger then has a go. Over.

40' 

Five minutes until the break. No real chances yet, but Chelsea will be the happier team.

37' 

Azpilicueta clears Torres' kick. Not his best.

37' 

Benjamin Mendy wins another City corner.

35' 

Aguero turns again. His intelligence in dropping deep is clear. He finds Sterling, who cuts inside and shoots tamely at Mendy.

33' 

Wener comes forward again and miskicks his shot. It turns out he was offside again.

32' 

Brilliant Chelsea move started by Alonso, whose deep cross found James. His shot is deflected into the goal by Werner, who is offside.

30' 

Half an hour in here, and both sides are continuing to jab. No blows landed yet.

29' 

Chelsea come forward with Timo Werner, who turns and finds Pulisic. The return pass is dummied by Alonso, but can't find Werner again.

27' 

Chelsea cut out a Chelsea attack. Ake won the ball high and played in Sterling, but his pass for Aguero can't reach its target.

26' 

Torres is on the corners, not Cancelo. I'm sure I made that mistake last week!

24' 

Alonso clears from Cancelo's corner. He has another go. Caught by Mendy.

21' 

Ake clears but Chelsea come back. Aguero drops deep to pick up a foul.

21' 

Chelsea have another free kick, further out than earlier but again on the right.

18' 

Unsurprisingly, Chelsea are finding so much space right now.

17' 

Excellent corner but deflects off Ake. Goal kick.

17' 

Aguero turns and drives forward. Mendy picks the ball up on the left ans feeds Rodri. His strike is deflected wide.

Ziyech finds James down the right, but his cross is straight into Ederson.

14'

11' 

The game's tempo hasn't really kicked in fully yet. Feels like both teams want to avoid giving anything away ahead of the final.

8' 

WIDE! Mendy shoots off target for the hosts after Jesus struck from the edge of the area but saw his effort blocked.

7' 

City have taken the initiative now and they are controlling the tempo. Chelsea simply must target Rodri with a high line behind him.

4' 

SHOT! Christensen misjudges the flight of a long ball and Ferran Torres steals in. Aguero is up with him but he goes alone and shoots over.

3' 

City pressing high early on. Chelsea enjoying some of the ball.

1' 

Rodrii is Man City's only centre midfielder. That is bold from City.

1' 

Chelsea get us underway here.

17:29 

My tongue was firmly in my cheek typing that, by the way.

17:26 

READY FOR THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE DRESS REHEARSAL?! Here we go!

17:25 

Wondering why Pep has started Aguero?

17:21 

I'm Harry De Cosemo - @harrydecosemi on Twitter - and I'll be taking you through the action today. Should be a great one!

17:18 

Just over 10 minutes to go here... What are you thinking?

17:13 

Looks like both sides are going with three at the back, with plenty of changes. Billy Gilmour getting the nod again for the Blues, who'll go third with a win.

17:01 

There is no doubting which team deserves to be champions this season. City have been a tough nut to crack all season, with the necessary quality when it mattered.

16:59 

Here's a full breakdown of City's team news. NINE changes. Aguero starts.

16:56 

Chelsea, who are still in the hunt for a top four spot, will be hoping to take full advantage of defeats for Leicester and Tottenham already this weekend. Thomas Tuchel still only has one defeat to his name in the league.

16:52 

So, this is it. City know that three points will be enough tonight. It is only a matter of time anyway, but Pep Guardiola will be hoping they can wrap things up here. His focus will be on the Champions League final, against...Chelsea.

16:52 

Chelsea line up as follows.

16:50 

Manchester City can win a third Premier League title in four seasons if they win tonight. Here is how they line up.
