The intense title race will go down to the final day of the season following Liverpool's come-from-behind victory at Southampton on Tuesday.
And there's still a possibility - albeit very, very unlikely - that the 2021/22 Premier League season could be decided by a play-off.
If Man City are smashed 6-0 by Steven Gerrard's Aston Villa and Liverpool play out a 5-5 draw with Wolves, then the title will go to a one-off fixture to crown a champion.

Those score lines would put Liverpool and Man City on equal points, goal difference, goals for and goals against in the table.
Not to mention head-to-head, with both league encounters at Anfield and the Etihad playing out 2-2 draws.
Whilst it has never happened, this rule is provisioned for in the Premier League’s handbook.
That handbook states: "If two clubs cannot be separated by operation of Rule C.17.1 and C.17.2, a play-off on a neutral ground, the format, timing and venue of which shall be determined by the board."
The thought of a Premier League play-off to decide the title could prove problematic with Jurgen Klopp's team set to compete in the Champions League final on May 28.
International fixtures will then take centre stage from June 1, with UEFA Nations League matches on deck.
As for a location, Manchester United's Old Trafford or Aston Villa's Villa Park could host the fixture having staged FA Cup semi-finals in the past.
But, of course, the aforementioned score lines are farfetched to say the least, right...?
