Even after dropping points against West Ham, City has a good chance of winning the Premier League title in 2021-22.
Despite a draw against West Ham, City is still looking to win the Premier League title in 2021-22.
We will be watching the outcome of the fight for the title of England’s football champion this weekend. But who will be the one to hoist the coveted trophy above his head? Will the residents of the town be able to win their fourth championship in the last five years? Or will the Merseysiders win their second championship in three years?
Much of the present has devolved into a battle between City and Liverpool’s two best mounts. The Citizens are working hard to maintain their dominance in the domestic arena, as the next title will be their sixth in as many years.
Liverpool, on the other hand, is eager to compete with their bitter rivals from Manchester United for the most titles in the history of football in Foggy Albion.
A fantastic opportunity for “Liverpool” in general to win the quadruple presents itself. The Merseysiders have already won the League Cup and the FA Cup, and in the UEFA Champions League final on May 28, they will face Real Madrid. City led Liverpool by three points and had the best goal difference going into the penultimate round of the draw.
Last Sunday, however, Pep Guardiola’s team struggled against West Ham, giving Liverpool hope ahead of their match against Southampton. City was down 0-2 at halftime, but managed a 2-2 draw, with Riyad Mahrez, the “citizens'” midfielder, failing to convert a penalty at the end of the game.
Liverpool, on the other hand, scored a resolute victory, winning 0-1 in the 13th minute thanks to a goal from midfielder Nathan Redmond.
English Premier League table (before the 37th round)
1. Manchester City – 89 points
2. Liverpool – 86
Table of the English Premier League (after the 37th round)
1. Manchester City – 90 points
2. Liverpool – 89
In the last round, Liverpool will play at home with eighth-placed Wolves, while Manchester City will host Aston Villa, 14th in the table, at the Etihad’s home stadium.
The goal difference favors City. Pep Guardiola’s team has a +72 record (96 goals scored and 24 goals conceded) on the eve of the decisive day, while Jurgen Klopp’s team has a worse record (91 goals scored and 25 goals conceded). As a result, everything hinges on Steven Gerrard’s team’s ability to steal points from the leader.
The last time Villa beat City was on April 28, 2007, when the visitors won 2-0 thanks to goals from John Carew and Sean Maloney.
Man City has 14 wins at home this season, two draws (against Liverpool and Southampton), and two defeats (against Tottenham and Crystal Palace).

In any case, “Liverpool” must win and believe that “Aston Villa” will be able to steal points from a rival.
This season, Liverpool has never lost at home, but has drawn four times against Chelsea, City, Brighton, and Tottenham.
As a result, the Merseysiders are expected to win, but will it be enough to put them ahead of their opponents in the final standings? Will we see drama in the last round of the Premier League or will Manchester City easily grab another league title?
