Then it will come down to the final fixture results which sees City head to Swansea City and United host Bournemouth as the fight for fourth position heats up.
However, the 33-year-old defender feels that City deserve to be in Champions League next season having made it through to the semi-finals of the 2015/16 edition.
Sagna said: "To me we deserve it. We gave it a lot. Of course we are not perfect, of course we could have done better, but to me we deserve to be in the Champions League places.
"It's a big project that we are part of. We have managed to reach the semi-final this season so that shows we are quite a good team. It's vital for us to be part of the Champions League."
