Liverpool now need just two wins to clinch the Premier League after Manchester City lost to Manchester United in the derby on Sunday, but there is still a chance Jurgen Klopp’s side could win the title away at Everton a week on Monday. It has been a matter of when more than if Liverpool would win their first top flight in 30 years since the turn of the year.
They had taken 79 points from a possible 81 after 27 games while City failed to match the incredible form of Jurgen Klopp’s side.
A first defeat of the season against Watford last weekend only halted their march to the title though as they returned to winning ways against Bournemouth.
The defeat at Watford though acted as some relief to those on the blue half of Merseyside with it looking unlikely Liverpool would be able to win the title at Goodison Park.
But it is back on the cards after City suffered a 2-0 defeat to United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Goals from Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay handed Pep Guardiola’s side their seventh defeat of the season.
Liverpool could now theoretically be crowned Premier League champions next weekend, but only if City lose their next two games at home to Arsenal and Burnley.
That would see Liverpool walk out as champions at Goodison Park, meaning the Everton players would likely give Klopp’s side a guard of honour.
Alternatively, Liverpool could win the title at Everton if City drop three more points against Arsenal or Burnley and the Reds beat their bitter rivals on March 16.
