Liverpool crushed Crystal Palace on Wednesday to move one step closer to winning the Premier League trophy.
So when will that happen?
After Sunday’s draw with Everton was met by Man City’s controlling defeat of Burnley, it felt a bit away still.
No more, especially now that Pep Guardiola is ready to focus on the FA Cup instead of the league and Chelsea is desperate to firm up its top four footing.
Liverpool’s path to an inevitable Premier League title
The Reds now have to gain three points or have City drop two points.
That’s most certainly going to happen, but when? Here are the next four Premier League matches involving the two sides.
Keep in mind that Man City has an extra match just days before Liverpool visits the Etihad, with the Reds falling out of the FA Cup. Man City visits Newcastle on June 28.
It’s very difficult to see the title race running any further than July 5.
Thursday: Chelsea v. Man City, 3:15 p.m. ET
July 2: Man City v. Liverpool, 3:15 p.m. ET
July 5: Liverpool v. Aston Villa, 11:30 a.m. ET
July 5: Southampton v. Man City, 2 p.m. ET
- Liverpool wins the title if Man City draws or loses against Chelsea on Thursday.
- The Reds can win the title by beating or drawing City at the Etihad on July 2.
- If City beats Chelsea and Liverpool, the Reds will have 86 points and City 69 but maxing out at 87.
