Pep Guardiola expects the race for this season's Champions League places to go right to the last day of the season.
His Manchester City side currently sit fourth, with their opponents this week, Manchester United, just a point behind in fifth.
And the Catalan boss is fully expecting the tension to continue right up until the final game of the campaign, with Liverpool and Arsenal also vying for the other two top-four spots alongside Chelsea and Tottenham.
"I said two months ago that this run will happen until the last game," he said.
"Every game is so, so important. It’s going to go until the last game.
"We saw Liverpool lose at home against Crystal Palace.
"Palace have to come here after winning at Stamford Bridge, Anfield and at home against Arsenal.
"What I’ve learned here is that the difficulty with the top and low teams are quite similar, in the way you face them. It’s not so different.
"Middlesbrough will be difficult, Palace, West Brom, Watford. Game by game, we’ll try to win the points and ensure Champions League next season."
