Something new to watch on the way to Anfield today: a mural of Ian Rush, Liverpool scorer of 346 goals, winner of five league titles and former owner of an excellent mustache.

Hi world!

So the day of truth arrived. Liverpool certainly won’t win the title today, but from here:

It was a wild and thrilling race, in which four points were lost from a possible 51, and if there is to be another twist in history today, it will be the makings of instant legend. The very possibility, slim as it is, is enough to make this afternoon unmissable. Thank you for choosing not to miss it with me.

Here’s Will Unwin on Liverpool:

It’s no surprise that Jürgen Klopp is enjoying the moment of his life as he prepares to lead Liverpool in a decisive week for the season. The German has the exciting possibility of winning the Premier League and the Champions League in the space of six days. Real Madrid are the opponents in Paris next Saturday, but Manchester City thwart Klopp and Liverpool first, and the challenge is exciting for a man who has already won a Premier League title and two Bundesliga titles. The weekly battle to face Pep Guardiola’s side keeps Klopp invigorated knowing he and his team have always been at their best.

Klopp knows the pain of 2018-19 when City propelled Liverpool to first place. Once again it comes down to the final day of the season, with Liverpool realistically set to beat Wolves and City dropping points to Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa. “I was lucky to have had some exciting moments,” Klopp said. “If you ask my wife, she asks why [does it] always go down to the last game. It happens incredibly often. It’s the most exciting because seeing how good the boys are and seeing the milestones we’ve reached and only two games to go. It’s incredible. I feel like five minutes ago it was seven games. Now, wham, here we go for two finals.
