Liverpool can secure the crown for the first time if they win their next four matches, and they could do so before then if their closest rivals Manchester City drop points.

The Reds took another step towards winning the league with Monday’s 3-2 home win over West ham United after Sadio Mane netted a last gasp goal to earn the win for the Anfield outfits.

Even if their nearest pursuers Manchester City win all of their fixtures, Jurgen Kloop charges would win the title if they are victorious in their next four matches.

Liverpool could win the title even earlier, moving out of range before 21 March if Man City drop more than two points.

If City lose their next Premier League match at Manchester United and Liverpool win their next two, Manchester City would concede the title if they are defeated at home to Burnley on 14 March.

If Man City pick up one point from their next two, while Liverpool keep winning, then a draw for the Reds at Everton on Monday 16 March would secure the title.

Three points for City from their next two fixtures would mean that Klopp’s men could wrap up the title with a victory in the Merseyside derby.
