It is just a matter of time before Liverpool become the champions elect of the premier league, which will be their first in 30 years and their first since the days of the old division one.
Technically, Liverpool could become winners of the 2019/2020 premier league season even before they play local rivals at Goodison park next Monday.
This can only become a reality if Manchester city fail to win their next two games at home to Arsenal on Wednesday in a rescheduled match due to Manchester city’s league cup final victory last Sunday and at home to Burnley on Saturday before Liverpool play on Monday, in the event of city not winning both games, Liverpool could win their first premier league trophy in 30 years.
Regardless of what Manchester city do in terms of winning games from now to the end of the season, Jurgen Klopp’s men know two more victory will secure their status as champions elect.
However, Liverpool could become champions on the home turf of their local rivals in the event of Manchester city picking up less than four points in their two games before Liverpool play on Monday.
If Liverpool were to secure the title by Monday, they will have eight games remaining, breaking the record of five games remaining set by Manchester United in 2000/01 and Manchester city in 2017/18. And will also break the record of earliest title win held by Manchester United of 14 April in 2001.
If Liverpool were to win on the turf of their local rivals, they will become the second team to secure the title in the home ground of their local rivals after the invincibles secured the 2003/04 title at the home of their north London neighbours, Tottenham.
