Liverpool game with Manchester United has been postponed and it has done Jurgen Klopp’s side’s a favour. Had they beaten United, Manchester City would have been crowned champions and been left free to turn their attention to the Champions League.
But after reaching the Champions League final, City have the opportunity to win the title themselves when they return to league action on Saturday. And they will be playing against fourth-placed Chelsea at home before Liverpool clashes with Southampton.
With Liverpool’s postponed game against Manchester United ensuring Chelsea’s trip to the Etihad is not meaningless for Man City, the pressure remains firmly on the Blues as Klopp’s men look to pounce on any potential slip-up in the race for fourth.
