City can win, Liverpool must win
Leader Manchester City enters the final matchday in England with 1 point bonus on Liverpool. With a win, it is therefore certain of a new Premier League title, the 4th for star and Red Devil Kevin De Bruyne.
Liverpool must therefore hope that the competitor leaves points. If it is correct itself Wolverhampton, it can celebrate the title just like two years ago.
But what if the two teams are level? Then City can (almost certainly) raise the trophy.
Because the jury in England first looks at the goal difference. With +72, City is clearly doing better than Liverpool (+66).
In some unlikely scenarios, Liverpool can take the title with a draw, but with a win it has a better chance of the Premier League title and the quadruple.
Jürgen Klopp’s team has already won the FA Cup and the Liga Cup this season. Next weekend, Liverpool will also play the Champions League final (against Real Madrid).
