Who will win the English Premier League title today? | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f


Liverpool are bidding to becoming the first team to overtake the Premier League leaders on the final day as they look to wrest the title from champions Manchester City.

The Reds, who host Wolves, are one point behind leaders City, who visit Brighton – with both games on Sunday at 3pm (Nigerian time).

It is the eighth Premier League title race to go down to the final day. Champions League finalists Liverpool have not won the league since 1990.

It has been a title race of the highest quality, with City winning their past 13 league games and Liverpool winning eight in a row. Neither side have lost a league game since January.

With City on 95 points and Liverpool on 94, whoever finishes second is guaranteed to have the highest final points total of any runners-up in English top-flight history.

Realistically Liverpool need to beat seventh-placed Wolves and hope Manchester City drop points against 17th-placed Brighton. The Reds come into the game high on confidence after reaching the Champions League final with a stunning 4-0 victory over Barcelona on Tuesday, after losing the first leg 3-0.

They face Tottenham in the Madrid final on 1 June. City are looking to become the first team to win the English domestic treble. Pep Guardiola’s side beat Chelsea on penalties in the Carabao Cup final and face Watford in the FA Cup final next Saturday. The title lead has changed hands a record 32 times – albeit including several weekends that Liverpool have played their game first.

The Reds need to make that 33 to win the league. Liverpool were seven points clear of Manchester City until the champions beat them 2-1 on 3 January in what remains the Reds’ only league defeat this season.
