Manuel Pellegrini has urged Manchester City to focus only on defeating Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday evening, after Liverpool's draw with Crystal Palace – a game that Pellegrini says he did not watch – made the manager's side even firmer favourites for the title.
City trail Liverpool by a point but have a game more to play, with their season ending with West Ham United's visit on Sunday.
"I only know we have to win the game against Aston Villa – at the end of the week [Sunday] we'll see who has more points. We [will] prepare exactly the same as we have during the year. We must win tomorrow and then we see what happens on Sunday."
While Sergio Agüero is unable to face Villa because of a groin problem, the manager would not be drawn on Uefa's potential sanctions for City falling foul of FFP rules.
The club may be fined up to £50m and face having only 21 oplayers in their Champions League squad. "I don't know about that," said Pellegrini. "Not official [yet, so] nothing more to say. When there is official news from Uefa we can analyse what will happen."
