Liverpool On Course To Win The Title At The Etihad

Liverpool On Course To Win The Title At The Etihad

Liverpool's draw against Everton denied them the chance to win the Premier League title on Monday but the game against Manchester City next week looks like the best chance for the Reds.

Ahead of the Premier League's restart Jurgen Klopp's team would have been hoping to be champions already, had City lost to Arsenal and the Reds' beaten Everton in the Merseyside derby.

Instead neither result came to fruition with City 3-0 winners and Liverpool drawing 0-0, leaving Klopp and his players still waiting to end the club's 30 year wait for a title.

City face Burnley on Monday night and whatever the result in that game Liverpool won't be crowned champions. Should Pep Guardiola's team win and the league leaders follow by beating Crystal Palace on Wednesday then the champions would need to beat Chelsea on Thursday to keep the title race going.

If all three results this week go the way of the top two sides in the league then they will head to the Etihad on July 2nd knowing a draw, or Liverpool win, would end the race and crown Liverpool as champions.

Liverpool's game against Palace on Wednesday is far from a guaranteed three points. Palace looked very good against a poor Bournemouth side at the weekend and the south London side do have a history of stopping Liverpool's title ambitions.

That might not matter too much with City facing a tricky test against Frank Lampard's Chelsea just 24 hours after the Liverpool vs Palace game.

Liverpool Could Be Left To Celebrate Title Win In A Car Park

The Blues' will have had an extra days rest and buoyed by over turning a 1-0 deficit to Aston Villa to come through relatively easily in the end.

By the time Guardiola's men host their title rivals in 10 days they'll have played two games more since the restart than Klopp's side.

As well as their game in hand against Arsenal, they face Newcastle United at the weekend in the FA Cup quarter final.

Should the title race go beyond the game between the top two on July 2nd then Liverpool will still have six more attempts to win the league, starting with Aston Villa on Sunday 5th July.

Even with the results so far it remains a case of when and not if for Liverpool's title.
