As such, the outcome of Man City's league meeting with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge will very much determine how soon they win the title.

Should Man City win against the Blues, Liverpool will have to wait a little longer to land their hands on the precious trophy.

However, if City draw or lose, then it will be mathematically impossible for them to catch up with Liverpool.

Meaning, such a scenario would see Jurgen Klopp's men crowned champions Thursday evening, June 25.

Be that as it may, Liverpool may be hoping City wins against Chelsea as it means they will have the opportunity to lift the title against the Etihad dwellers in their next game, rather than be crowned champions as a result of Pep Guardiola's men losing.
