Julian Alvarez says having the Premier League title fate in our own hands is exactly how the City players want it.

The Argentine World Cup winner knows says knowing the reward for six more league wins is incentive enough for the team.

But he accepts it is going to be tough, with many difficult games still to come.

“We have the opportunity to be champions again. We can get two more trophies and we are excited to play,” said Alvarez.

“It was a difficult week because we lost in the Champions League, but then we wanted to reach the final of the FA Cup as we had the semi-final to play.

“If we are able to execute our game plan, then we can win every game and it depends on us if we want to be champions.”

“We have to be strong because we can’t lose. We have to win every game if we want to be champions.

“You have to be there working hard, being humble and play to win.”

City’s six-game run in of league matches starts against Brighton & Hove Albion on Thursday evening.

Though the Seagulls haven’t managed to repeat the exploits of last season, Alvarez knows they are still an incredibly tough side to face, particularly on their own soil where they have lost just twice in 15 Premier League fixtures.

“Brighton is a tough opponent,” he said.

“They are doing very well and have great players. But like I said, if we can execute our game plan then we can win.

“It is a difficult fight. Arsenal and Liverpool are very strong, and they have good players and good teams.

“Every single game is a final and we have to play like a final if we want to be champions. It is very important for us.

“It would be unbelievable as no other team has done this in history.

“Of course, we want to do it, but we have to keep focusing on the next game and that is Brighton and then the others.

“It is hard, but we have done it last season where we were fighting for three titles at the same time.

“Now we have to focus on Brighton and then Nottingham Forest. It is tough, but if we are able to do it, then it will be easier for us.

“We have the players, we are doing well and if we play with our style then we can win every game - it depends on us if we want to be champions and to do that, we have to win every game.”
