The race for the Premier League title this season appears to be on the wane. With seven games remaining, just one point separates the top two teams in the division. In the blue corner you have defending champions Manchester City who are at the top with 74 points from 31 games. In the red corner is Liverpool, who are second with 73 points from the same number of games played.
In Sunday’s top game at the Etihad Stadium, the title rivals played a “classic” 2-2 draw, said Phil McNulty BBC. The clash between “the country’s two outstanding teams” lived up to his pre-game prediction and “in the end there was nothing that could separate them, with the title still hanging in the balance”.
City and Liverpool have “been engaged in some epic battles” in recent seasons, particularly in 2018-19 when City edged out their rivals by a single point for the title, he said AFP. Expect another thrilling conclusion to this season’s premier club competitions. The next installment comes on Saturday in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley Stadium. “This time they know there can be no draw with Liverpool’s bid for an unprecedented quadruple and City’s treble chase at stake.”
It might even be possible to a UEFA Champions League Final with both teams. “For many, such a clash would only confirm what we already know – they are the top two sides not just in England but in Europe.
What Guardiola and Klopp said after the 2: 2
City head coach Pep Guardiola hailed his opponents as “a joy to watch” and said his side had given Liverpool “a life” in the title race. The guard reported. The Spaniard believes City must win all remaining games if they want to retain the league.
“We now know that one game and one lost result, then we won’t become champions,” he said. “Will it be easy? Absolutely not, but it will be difficult for them too. Seven games in the Premier League is a lot [to win] – they are tough games and they have tough games.”
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insisted his team “wouldn’t stop chasing the champions”, likening the rivalry to two heavyweight boxers. “We can describe it like a boxing match,” said the German. “Both arms down for a second and you get a massive punch. You can shake yourself off a bit and then the next knock comes from the other team. Now there are seven games left for both teams. We won’t stop hunting now. That is clear.”
Expert predictions: who will win the title?
Before the start of the season, City, Chelsea and Liverpool were there the favorites to win the Premier League. Now it’s a two horse race. Here we look at the expert predictions for the title with seven games remaining.
The “exciting” 2-2 draw leaves the title race “finely balanced as we enter the final six weeks of the campaign,” he said Daily Mail. The newspaper’s Sportsmail team has “looked into their crystal ball” to predict the outcome of each side’s remaining games. They tipped Man City on six wins and one draw from their seven games to finish with 93 points. However, the Mail predicts it will be Liverpool who end up champions, winning their remaining seven games and finishing with 94 points – just one more than City.
In a way, “probably none of these impressive teams are going to do it,” “we’ve bottled it up a bit,” Dom Farrell continued The sports news, who also predicted the results of the most important matches. “City and Liverpool have each won six and drawn one of the remaining games and Guardiola has won his fourth title in five seasons from the single point advantage that exists today.”
It should be a title race that will “go down in top-class folklore,” said Matt Whiley Planet Sports. After watching the games and “using some good old-fashioned stats”, he predicts Liverpool will lead Manchester City to the title by two points.
There are “five key games” that will decide who becomes champion, he said i news Side? site. The most important meetings will be Liverpool’s home games against Manchester United and Tottenham and City’s away games at Leeds and West Ham and their home game against Aston Villa.
