Liverpool are still within touching distance of a first top-flight title in 30 years but when could they actually be crowned champions?

Manchester City kicked off with a 3-0 win over Arsenal on Wednesday, before Jurgen Klopp's side had to settle for a point in Sunday's goalless Merseyside derby before bouncing back with a thumping 4-0 victory at home to Crystal Palace.

So what now?

Liverpool are two points away from securing the title after their Palace win, meaning the runaway Premier League table leaders will be crowned champions if Man City fail to beat Chelsea on Thursday.

Could we be set for Etihad coronation?

If Man City do beat Chelsea, then we're in for a head-to-head showdown when Liverpool travel to Manchester City on Thursday, July 2 live on Sky Sports Premier League.

In that scenario, Liverpool would need just a point against City at the Etihad to win the league.

And what if City were to beat Liverpool?

If Liverpool were to then lose at City then they could finally lift the championship with a victory at home to Aston Villa on Sunday July 5. Were Liverpool to only draw against Villa then they could still win the title if City failed to beat Southampton.

Liverpool invincible no more - but what records could they still break?

  • The points record of 100 (City 2017/18) could be smashed; Liverpool will have 107 points if they win every game.
  • The biggest points gap between first and second is 19 points (City 2017/18) - the gap now is 23. City need to better Liverpool's results between now and the end of the season by two points to protect that record.
  • Liverpool need five wins from their final seven games to beat the win record of 32 (City 2017/18).

If Manchester City fail to beat Chelsea on Thursday, then Sky Sports will be on air with a Liverpool title winners special show on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports News from 10pm.
