Manchester City could wrap up the Premier League trophy this weekend against Manchester United. For any die-hard blue, it doesn’t get any better than that. It now seems that even if a blue victory happens, the trophy will not be forthcoming.
Some fans on social media have questioned this. Maybe thinking it’s to save Jose Mourinho blushes etc, I personally welcome the news, and I’ll tell you why. The Premier League will be won by Manchester City at some point, even if it’s not later today.

If it is later today, the what difference would get the trophy actually make? We will still have the record in the books of the quickest League win of the Premier League era. We will also have the beautiful looks on the faces of Alexis Sanchez and Jose Mourinho.
The only thing actually getting the trophy would make is taking our mind off of unfinished business. Manchester City have made an appeal to their fans, and that is that if the League is won against United, we do not invade the pitch.
Clearly we have an important game to take place on the same field in a little over 72 hours after the final whistle. When Liverpool head to the Etihad for the Champions League second leg, we need the pitch to be perfect.
Having a celebration and trophy presentation could serve as a boost before the game. It also could easily serve to lose focus of the team. Inspiration for the Blues will be on display front and center as Manchester City walk out at the Etihad.
The mascot for the day, and leading out the mighty blues, will be Charlie Kay. A ten-year old who suffers from Cerebral Palsey has walked 178 miles in the last three months, which just so happens to be the distance from his home to the Etihad Stadium.
Walking the final mile as he leads out the side he shows that anything is possible. We can certainly win the League at home against United and we can most certainly overturn the deficit on Tuesday night.
