The Reds are desperate to end their league trophy drought and go into the last day with an outside chance

This season’s Premier League title race has been one of the most exciting in years with Liverpool and Manchester City going toe-to-toe all the way.

The top-flight giants will both finish the campaign with well over 90 points and can be considered two of the very best sides on the planet.

While City have won three titles in seven years including last term, Liverpool are longing to end their wait for another top-flight crown.

But they go into the final day as the underdogs with City’s 1-0 victory over Leicester on Monday night putting them back in front ahead of the final day of the Premier League season on Sunday.


What do Liverpool need to win the title?

City’s win over Leicester moved them one point clear at the top of the table ahead of Sunday’s final round of fixtures.

Liverpool host Wolves at Anfield while City travel to Brighton with both matches kicking off at 3pm.

Liverpool must win and hope City draw or lose to win the title.

If CIty lose and Liverpool draw, Jurgen Klopp’s side will finish on the same number of points but will take the runners up spot due to an inferior goal difference.

When did Liverpool last win the title?

The Reds’ last league title came in the 1989/90 season, some 29 years ago. It was their 18th title.

In that season, Kenny Dalglish’s side finished nine points clear of Aston Villa at the top of the First Division and lost just one match all season.

Liverpool have finished league runners-up on 13 occasions and did so most recently in 2013-14.
