Manchester City And Liverpool Are Still Two Results Away From A Play-Off

Manchester City And Liverpool Are Still Two Results Away From A Play-Off

Vincent Kompany's brilliant strike against Leicester City put Pep Guardiola's side one win away from the Premier League title but they could still have to play Liverpool in a play off if results at the weekend take a strange turn.

Imagine if every Manchester City fan in the crowd on Monday night was wearing a heart monitor and imagine the pace of their heartbeats increasing as time went on during the games against Leicester City.

Pep Guardiola's side knew they needed to win to keep alive the dreams of defending the title with Liverpool not looking like they're going to drop points on the last day.

After a first half of battering at the door of Leicester's goal but not being able to break it down the nerves inside the Etihad were palpable.

Vincent Kompany's incredible strike broke the nerves of City fans and the hearts of Liverpool fans and put City within 90 minutes against Brighton of another league title.

Liverpool need to beat Wolves and hope Guardiola's side don't win to steal the title from them but there is actually still a chance there could be a title deciding play-off.

In the unlikely event that Liverpool draw 4-4 at home and City lose 4-0 on the south coast then the two sides will be level on points. goal difference and goals scored and will have to decide the title on a one off game at Wembley.

It does seem unlikely that those results will happen simply because there aren't too many 4-4 draws, oh and the fact that Brighton have only scored three goals in a game twice this season, never scoring four.

The title has never been close enough to need a play-off in the past with City's goal difference in 2012, when they beat rivals United to the title by that method, was so superior it was never in question.

In 1995/96 the Premier League did make provisional plans for a play-off situation when Sir Alex Ferguson's side and Newcastle United were battling for the title, although the Manchester side ended up four points clear.

Guardiola will be hoping to avoid the situation and after going through all the emotions and heart rates on Monday so will all the fans.
