Liverpool are now in second place in the standings with 89 points. They are one point behind Manchester City at the top.
There is only one game left in the Premier League competition. All final week matches will be held simultaneously on Sunday (22/5).
Liverpool will face Wolverhampton at Anfield Stadium. At the same time, Manchester City will face Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City are the favorites to win the Premier League. However, Jurgen Klopp’s team also still has a chance to become champions.
Here are four reasons Liverpool will win the Premier League.
To be able to win the Premier League, Liverpool must win over Wolverhampton. At the same time they also have to hope Manchester City slip.
To beat Wolves, Liverpool does not seem to have a problem. They managed to beat Bruno Lage’s side at Molineux 1-0 in the first meeting.
This time Liverpool will face Wolves in front of their own supporters. Support from the host will help the Reds win three points over their guests this time.
Aston Villa’s performance under Steven Gerrard is not too special. However, they have the potential to make it difficult for Manchester City.
Villa are unbeaten in their last four Premier League matches. They won two wins and two draws.
In their last two away games, Villa were able to beat Burnley and hold Leicester City to a draw. Manchester City are very likely to drop points against Villa.
There are three former Liverpool in the Aston Villa squad. They are attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho, striker Danny Ings, and the coach Steven Gerrard.
They will certainly exert their best ability to stem Manchester City. Thus, Liverpool’s path to champions is wide open.
If it wasn’t for Liverpool, Gerrard would also want to win. An additional three points can make Villa in a better position than their current position in the Premier League standings (14).
Manchester City has also slipped when facing a team whose level is below it. Josep Guardiola’s team lost points at home.
Crystal Palace beat Manchester City 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium. Southampton also held the Citizens to a 0-0 draw.
Aston Villa have a chance to make Manchester City drop points in front of their own supporters. If that happens, Liverpool should be able to take advantage of it.
