Defender Lewis Dunk says Brighton & Hove Albion will give it their all when they take on title-chasing Manchester City at the Amex on Sunday.

City will be crowned champions with a victory but Liverpool will lift their first top-flight title since 1990 if they win at home to Wolves and Pep Guardiola’s side fail to beat Brighton.

The Seagulls are already safe from relegation but Dunk says there will no easing off. Albion were already safe when they produced one of their best performances of the season in last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Arsenal.

Dunk wants Brighton to produce the same level of performance again and said: “They’re fighting for the Premier League title and are going to do their utmost to do it.

“We’re just going out as professional footballers to win a game as you would do every week.

“Against Arsenal we had nothing to play for. We were safe but we fought out there and threw our bodies on the line and worked as hard as we could.

“That’s what you get paid to do. It’s your job and you get paid to win a football match.

“We’ll work hard this week, will have good preparation and will try our hardest in the game. What happens happens.”

Millions of people around the world will be watching the title finale and Dunk is relishing the occasion.

Albion’s players’ player of the season said: “The whole world will be watching. It’s going to be a great game to play in.

“It will be one that goes down in history because it’s such a tight title race and one of the best title races there has been.

“To be involved in it is excellent. I wish I was involved in it the right way but it’s going to be an enjoyable game.

“It’s our last home game of the season and hopefully we can send the fans off after the final game with something to cheer about.”
