Title battle “between Manchester City and Liverpool .. its date is known”


On Sunday (19:30 UAE time) the leaders will focus on the Etihad Stadium, which will be the scene of the summit match between Manchester City and defending champions and second-placed Liverpool. In the thirty-second round of the English Premier League.
After trailing 14 points behind City in the Liverpool League stages, they were able to close the gap to one point with 10 consecutive wins.
The Reds hope to reach a rare quartet after learning that they began their quest by beating Chelsea on penalties in late February to clinch the League Cup. , And have come a long way to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League, with a 3-1 victory in the first leg from Portugal’s stronghold Benfica.
History stands on the side of Manchester City because Liverpool have failed to beat the latter at home since 2015.
Liverpool coach Jர்கrgen Klopp has confirmed that his side will not be able to beat City, but confirms that if his team is to win in Manchester, it does not mean the title has been decided. I think someone will say ‘it’s over’ because of the quality of the opponent. “
“We’ll face the best team in the world right now, but that’s true, but we will do our best against it.”
City coach Pep Cardiola stressed the difficulty of the clash, saying, “We will face Liverpool in the next match in the league. We know they will win all the remaining matches, and we hope the next match will not be (against) us. But we will try to do the same.”
“Come May and if you’re still in the title race, it means you’ve had a great season. Being here means we’ve worked hard and done it every season.”
In general, the remaining matches for Manchester City appear easier on paper than Liverpool because the Citizens face only one team in the top ten, with West Ham remaining, while Liverpool face Manchester United, Tottenham and Wolverhampton.
As the Continental clash intensifies and the title race intensifies, competition for European positions will intensify between Tottenham and Arsenal and, to a lesser extent, between Manchester United and West Ham.
Tottenham climbed to fourth place with a 5-1 victory over Newcastle at Newcastle last week and continued in this position after a sudden and drastic 3-0 defeat against its neighbor Arsenal Crystal Palace in north London.
After losing 4 of 6 matches last January and February after losing weight, the experienced Italian coach “Spurs” led by Antonio Conte succeeded in getting his team on the right track, especially in light of the excellent performance. The attacking duo included Harry Kane (12 goals) and South Korean Hyung Min Son (14), where the team has scored 21 goals in the last 6 matches.

Tottenham in particular are waiting for two tough matches until the end of the league against Liverpool and Arsenal, but their attacking power could suggest they finish fourth and snatch the last card to qualify for the Champions League next season.
Manchester United, host to injured Everton, are in danger of being relegated to the “Championship”, especially after losing to a direct rival at the bottom of the table, with Burnley 2-3 in the middle. Postponed match week.
For Manchester United, who have been experiencing disappointing results recently, Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to the rankings due to ill health in his last match against Leicester City last week.
