Officially… Liverpool’s chances of winning the Premier League are dashed

Liverpool’s dreams of winning this season’s Premier League title have ended following Manchester City’s 4-0 victory over Fulham on Saturday.

With this victory, coach Pep Guardiola’s squad reached 85 points, while the most the Reds could reach with two rounds remaining at the end of the competition was only 84 points.

Liverpool has been a strong contender for the title in recent months, but the loss to Crystal Palace 1-0, then to Everton 2-0, and finally the draw with West Ham, dashed Jurgen Klopp’s dreams of a perfect end to his career at Anfield.

Thus, Klopp will only be satisfied with the Carabao Cup title in his final season with Liverpool, after he exited the FA Cup in the quarter-finals against Manchester United, and was eliminated from the Europa League by Atalanta in the quarter-finals as well.

City leads the Premier League standings, two points ahead of Arsenal, which will face Manchester United and Everton in the last two rounds of the competition.

It is noteworthy that City will face Tottenham in a postponed match to be played on Tuesday, then the league will conclude by facing West Ham at Etihad Stadium.
