The Premier League title race is almost impossible to call with just a few weeks remaining of the season.
Following Manchester City’s victory over Crystal Palace on Sunday and Liverpool’s win against Chelsea, it’s hard to know which side has the advantage.
Jurgen Klopp’s are currently two points ahead having played a game more.
However, City have the tougher run-in on paper with matches against Tottenham (H) and Manchester United (A) to come before May.
As for Liverpool, they face Cardiff (A), Huddersfield (H), Newcastle (A) and Wolves (H) in their final four fixtures.

But the Reds know they could win all four, end up on 97 points and still not win their first Premier League title if City were to win their last five matches.
However, there’s one man who doesn’t think that will be the case - a certain Alex Ferguson.
According to Jonathan Walters, Fergie is backing Liverpool to lift the trophy come May because he thinks Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will get a result against City.
United host City on April 24 in a clash many believe will decide the title-race.
And Ferguson apparently thinks United could hand the title to their old rivals Liverpool.
“I was chatting with Phil Bardsley, and I’m going to drop a name here, he was sat with Sir Alex Ferguson,” Walters told BBC Radio 5 Live’s Football Daily podcast.
“He sat with him and he thinks Liverpool are going to win it. He thinks Liverpool because he thinks United will get something out of the City game.”
Liverpool fans will just be praying Fergie is right.
In fairness, United massively need all three points themselves.
They’re in an almighty fight to finish in the top-four as they trail Tottenham by three points and Chelsea by two points.
But they know if they get a result against City, they could hand Liverpool the title.News Now - Sport News
