Can Liverpool Snatch It?
During the Christmas period, Liverpool had a seven-point lead over City at the top of the table. They seemed destined to clinch the Premier League with a couple of matches to spare. But their form suffered after Christmas and they threw away that seven points lead. Now with thirty-two matches played, City holds the upper hand with a one-point lead.
There are all the indications that this title race will not be settled until the final whistle of the final match-day.

But for Liverpool to cross the line ahead of city there are three things they must do.
Fight with the same spirit that has shone all season
Guardiola’s City is the most threatening team the Premier League has ever seen. But when things go against them in certain matches the players don’t show the fighting spirit required of a top team. The game against Manchester United last season where they threw away a two-goal lead is a prime example.
Liverpool has lost the league a couple of times from winning positions in the past and though tipped up by some of the most profitable football tipsters. Therefore questions are being raised over their credence to lift the PL trophy. But Jurgen Klopp has instilled a strong desire to win in this Liverpool side. They fight with everything they have got until the last minute and have nicked a goal in the final minutes to change the outcome of a game.
Protect Virgil Van Dijk
Van Dijk’s contribution to making Liverpool a defensively solid team and taking them a step closer to winning it can’t more evident. Before he came there was no organization to this Liverpool defence. Klopp recognized him as the only solution to fix their issues and made him the world’s most expensive defender till date.
He very rarely gets injured because of which he has been an
Salah needs to find his groove
Last season he was literally dancing in and around opposition defences and always seemed to be finding a way to score. But this season hasn’t been the same for whatever reasons despite him being the second highest scorer in the league. Even in the Spurs game last Sunday he was kept quiet for most of the game, at least until that fateful mistake by Hugo Lloris.
But Liverpool needs the Salah back who won the Puskas award last year. His form will be key in how well they do in both Europe and the Premier League. Liverpool has shown they can protect even a one goal lead but a lot of pressure will be relieved from the entire team if Salah starts scoring more often.
