Liverpool have the chance to win the Premier League when they play Man City at the Etihad

Winning the title at the Etihad? It's possible for Liverpool!

The less said about Everton 0-0 Liverpool, the better.

Sunday night’s headline game was sadly a total borefest, with both sides showing the side effects of having not played a competitive game in over three months.

Dejan Lovren’s introduction late in the second-half almost gifted Everton a win, but Alisson Becker was on hand to bail out his defensive partner.

The draw now means Liverpool will have to wait just that little bit longer to be officially crowned Premier League champions.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are currently 23 points clear of Manchester City with eight games to play, but City do have a game-in-hand which they play tonight against Burnley.

Should Pep Guardiola’s side win that, Liverpool will then be presented with a chance to be crowned champions at the Etihad itself on July 2.

Here’s how: If City beat Burnley and Liverpool then defeat Crystal Palace on Wednesday, the focus switches to City’s visit to Chelsea on June 25.

However, IF the Blues take any points off of the reigning champions, Liverpool will win the title on Thursday evening.

But should Guardiola’s team win at Stamford Bridge, the Reds will be offered the chance to seal the title at the home of their biggest rival in recent years.

You get the feeling there are going to be A LOT of twists and turns to come in the next five days.

If the title race – if you can call it a race – is settled before England’s two top dogs meet at the Etihad, the Mirror report that City will give Liverpool a ‘guard of honour’.

Liverpool’s last two visits to the Etihad have been very entertaining affairs. Back in April 2018, Klopp’s side famously won 2-1 in their Champions League quarter-final second leg.

Then in January 2019, Guardiola’s side got revenge with a 2-1 win of their own in the Premier League – a result that proved to be pivotal in City retaining the title.
