Manchester City has a game in hand over Liverpool, and they are set to play that on June 17 when hosting Arsenal at the Etihad. City winning that game would see Liverpool lead the table with 22 points with nine matches remaining, and if Liverpool and Manchester City continue to win their respective matches, it means the former will get to win the title with seven matches to play.
This could mean this will take place in Liverpool Gameweek 31’s match at home to Crystal Palace, which might take place on the last weekend of June or the first weekend of July.
