Liverpool cut Manchester City’s lead at the top of the Premier League back by one point with a tough 2-0 win over Everton in Sunday’s Merseyside derby.
Liverpool are just nine games away from being able to win their first four Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup titles.
Jurgen Klopp’s men lifted the League Cup in February and will face Chelsea in next month’s FA Cup final at Wembley.
But it is Man City that is the team that has the title in hand.
Pep Guardiola’s men overcame the great title race with a single point three years ago even though Liverpool registered a club record then of 97 points.
And Man City know they will win the title for the third time in four years if they win the remaining five games.
The remaining Premier League fixtures for both teams:
City of Manchester
April 30: Leeds (away)
May 8: Newcastle (home)
May 15: West Ham (away)
May 22: Aston Villa (home)
TBC: Wolves (away)
