Man City's champagne was put on ice after Man Utd vs Liverpool was postponed so when can they win the Premier League title now?

City moved to the brink of glory with a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

That result took them to 80 points - 13 clear of closest rivals Manchester United, who can only get a maximum of 82 points if they win all their remaining fixtures.

Pep Guardiola's side would have been crowned champions without playing and with four games to spare, had United lost to Liverpool.

A United draw would have effectively sealed the title for the blue half of Manchester, because of City's vastly superior goal difference.

But that game was postponed for safety and security reasons after protests against the Glazer ownership at Old Trafford saw fans invade the pitch.

City will now have to wait - but only a little longer.

A new date for Manchester United vs Liverpool is yet to be confirmed but assuming the game is not rearranged for this midweek given United's Europa League commitments, City's next opportunity to secure the title will be on Saturday May 8 when they play Chelsea, live on Sky Sports.

Live Premier League

If they slipped up - and Manchester United won on Sunday May 9 away to Aston Villa - the game at Newcastle on May 12 could be decisive.

There will be no Centurions repeat this season but Guardiola will hope to see his side get as close as possible to the maximum 92 points that their remaining games afford.
