Defending champions Manchester City will aim to wrap up the Premier League title when Aston Villa pay a visit to the Etihad Stadium for Sunday’s final-day showdown.
The Citizens currently hold a one-point lead over quadruple-chasing Liverpool who will welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to Anfield same day.
It is safe to say that Man City fans may have prematurely celebrated a successive Premier League triumph on Tuesday when Nathan Redmond gave Southampton the lead against Liverpool, but the Reds turned the tie around to ensure that the race for glory would go right down to the final day.
Pep Guardiola’s side would only need a point this weekend had they secured victory over West Ham United, but a disjointed side went 2-0 behind to Jarrod Bowen’s brace before Jack Grealish and a Vladimir Coufal own goal rescued a point for the league leaders.
This means Reds would need a favour from Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa at the Etihad in order to end an unforgettable domestic campaign on a high, regardless of what happens when they face Real Madrid in the Champions League final next week.
Meanwhile, the expectancy for Liverpool on Sunday will be one of disappointment, with the title very much in Man City’s hands; victory for Pep Guardiola’s men against Aston Villa will clinch them their fourth Premier League crown in five years, regardless of what Liverpool do.
The last time a premier league title race went down the wire in a similar fashion was in the 2018/19 season as Pep Guardiola’s side finished on 98 points, one ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s men who went on to lift the Champions League a few weeks later.
