Liverpool still need two points to secure the Premier League title as Champions thanks to their Palace win and Chelsea could do them a favour tonite.
But Man City’s win over Burnley means Liverpool, the runaway Premier League table leaders, need Chelsea to do them a favour and earn at least a point against City on Thursday to be crowned champions.
If City don’t win at Chelsea, then it’s all over and Liverpool will be crowned champions.
But if they do, then its a head-to-head showdown when Liverpool travel to Manchester City on Thursday, July 2.
In that scenario, Liverpool would need just a point against City at the Etihad to win the league. And what if City were to beat Liverpool?
If Liverpool were to then lose at City then they could finally lift the championship with a victory at home to Aston Villa on Sunday July 5. Were Liverpool to only draw then they could still win the title if City failed to beat Southampton.
