Liverpool and Manchester City’s remaining fixtures analyzed with where and how the title could be won


The battle for the Premier League title race between Manchester City and Liverpool should be an absolute crack.

Both served us a treat in the 2018/19 campaign, with Pep Guardiola’s side just taking the Reds to the title on the final day.

Guardiola is on the hunt for another Premier League title

Given that there is only one point separating City from Liverpool with eight games to play, we expect another spectacular conclusion to the season.

City led the way for most of the campaign having won 12 league games from November to January.

But Liverpool have come back strong and the team are in better shape for the commercial end of the campaign.

So it’s too difficult to make a confident prediction and there are plenty of teams at both ends of the table that will help decide who will claim title glory.

This will be the big one and it’s just around the corner.

Should the Reds win, the title race would once again be in their hands. But if City do, the race could be over.

Liverpool were beaten 4-0 at the Etihad in the 2019/20 season and haven’t won there in the league since 2015, so history is against them.

But they will be full of confidence and have an embarrassment of riches to choose from in an attacking sense, while City have plenty of options up front too.

There have been some big games between these two, but this has the potential to be the most important meeting of recent times.

The Reds don’t have the best record at the Etihad

Manchester United – Home – April 19

Nine days after playing at the Etihad, the Reds host their traditional rivals Manchester United.

The two clubs are miles apart these days, but the Red Devils still have plenty of world-class individuals who could spoil the title party on Merseyside.

But the last meeting between these two was embarrassing for United as they were beaten 5-0 at Old Trafford.

Liverpool are also the only team to be unbeaten at home this year and have not lost to the Red Devils at Anfield since January 2016.

However, United are in the hunt for the top four and a win here would boost those chances enormously.

Tottenham – Home – May 7

If Liverpool come out unscathed against the Manchester giants, all eyes will be on this game.

Tottenham are still pushing for the top four and could be another team that could end Liverpool’s title hopes.

But Spurs have an abysmal record against the Reds and haven’t won at Anfield since 2011, when they lost 13 of the last 19 league games between the two.

However, this Spurs side have Antonio Conte at the helm and he has a good record against Klopp.

In five meetings between the two, the Italian has won three and drawn, so he has the advantage.

Sure, Conte could be the man to ruin Liverpool’s title hopes, but equally, if the Reds win so late in the season, it could be the result they need to seal the title.

Either way, it’s going to be a huge game.

It’s hard to look away from this game.

In their last five league games at the Etihad, City are unbeaten and have won 5-0 and 4-0 in that spell.

You could say the Etihad is the only place in the country where Klopp’s side don’t like to travel, which could play into City’s hands.

If all goes to plan, City should head into this fixture still a point ahead of the Reds, so if they win here, you’d think the title race would be over.

Wolves – Exterior – TBC

Wolves have had a good season under Bruno Lage and sit comfortably in eighth place, two points behind Man United and West Ham.

They have the fourth-best defense in the league but have scored just 33 goals, while City just overtook them at the Etihad in December.

But at Molineux, Guardiola’s side have had some problems in recent years as they lost 3-2 in the 2019/20 season and drew at the start of the 2018/19 campaign.

Wolves have scored five goals in their last three meetings with City at home, and with a packed Molineux behind them, this could prove to be another tricky tie for Guardiola’s side.

It will also be a rearranged game, meaning it could be a busy week for City when its date is finally confirmed.

Would it be fitting for Steven Gerrard to win the Premier League title at Liverpool on the final day of the season by getting a result against City?

The former Reds midfielder has never won the league as a player but could certainly help them win it as a manager.

Villa are relegation-proof and unlikely to challenge for the European places, so they won’t have much to play for on paper.

But can you see Gerrard allowing his team to report to the Etihad for a title procession? You would highly doubt it, and Villa have enough players on their side to hurt City.
