First off, the easy scenario – City beat Brighton and cannot be caught by Liverpool. That’s the only one we really want, but it’s not the only way the Blues could be crowned champions.
If we match Liverpool’s result, City will win the title – so if the Reds win, draw or even lose against Wolves and City’s result is the same, the Blues will win the league by one point.
But, as an old comedian once claimed, there’s more.
A defeat on Sunday wouldn’t end City’s title hopes if Liverpool can only draw – provided there aren’t a couple of extraordinary results.
For the above to work in Liverpool’s favour, City would have to avoid defeat by five goals as the Blues have a goal difference that is +4 better as things stand.
A 4-0 loss to the Seagulls and a Liverpool draw would still see City crowned champions by virtue of more goals scored – unless Liverpool drew 5-5 which would see the title go to Merseyside.
And there is one more, highly unlikely possibility to consider – a Premier League title play-off between City and Liverpool.
For that to happen, only one set of results would see both City and Liverpool end with identical goals scored and goals conceded records, and that is a 4-0 defeat for the Blues and a 4-4 draw at Anfield.
Complicated and unlikely, but useful to know!
Let’s just keep our fingers crossed for a 14th successive Premier League win and keep everything simple…
